Welcome to the Garigal Gorillas Page
The club was formed in 2017 to support the ever growing mountain bike community around the Northern Beaches. The main goal of the club is to help develop and maintain sustainable mountain biking trails and bring together the large mountain bike community.
We aim to establish relationships and work closely with Council, National Parks, Landowners and other local users for the future of mountain biking in the area.
THANKS TO EVERYONE INVOLVED - INDIVIDUALS, SPONSORS AND THE COMMUNITY BEHIND US.
