The You Yangs Mountain Bike Club was developed as a not-for profit organisation to assist with the improvement and maintenance of the Mountain Bike Park, raising funds via Racing, Events and Shuttle Days.
The You Yangs MTB trails are not government funded. We have been building and maintaining trails since 2010. All work is done by volunteers, donations & dedication. Our ride days & events are purely fundraisers.
