Best Places To Ride Your Electric Dirt Bike in Brisbane

The Best Places To Ride Your Electric Dirt Bike in Brisbane

You’ve bought the kids their new electric dirt bike. They are over the moon. They practiced every day. They brake like a pro, they carve and master little jumps. They look fired up and eager to do more, but the back garden is beginning to feel a bit limiting, even if you live on acerage. But you want to keep the momentum going (in the literal sense 😊) and keep that spark and excitement in their eyes.

You need ideas and fast!

As a company based in Brisbane, we’re here to share some of our favourite local hotspots so that you don't need to worry anymore about where to ride your beginner's dirt bike. Its awesome for the kids to ride amongst other kids and to have a chat with likeminded parents. Check out these cool locations as we give you the lowdown on where to ride a dirt bike in Brisbane.

***Please note all opening times, prices and events are subject to change. Please double check all information is still current and correct with the locations themselves before setting off!***

***We would also advise contacting the relevant track one day before as well as checking their websites and Facebook pages for the very latest track conditions. Continuous wet weather can sometimes keep tracks shut for weeks. To avoid disappointment for the kids, try not to make promises. “We’ll try and go when conditions are ok” is often a safer option! ***

1. Ultimate Junior Motocross at the Sleeman Sports Complex 

This is a great place to kickstart the weekend with a 2-hour practice ride. The complex offers dirt bike riding and bookable coaching sessions for junior riders and senior beginner riders.

Junior riders can get off to a flying start by riding their beginner dirt bikes on a grass track with portable jumps and bumps. The design of the track layouts caters for junior riders so there aren’t the big jumps, ruts and bumps of a motocross race track.

Ultimate Motocross has also been organising Friday evening events for Juniors under special night lights. Check these out using the contact details below for more information.

In case the kids want to bring a friend who doesn’t have their own beginner's dirt bike, there is a range of dirt bikes and junior quads you can hire. There are even bikes for Mums and Dads available too. You’d need to book all these in advance.
