Trail Adoption Program


Invest in the future of the Lysterfield trails whilst also helping to grow your business presence


The Trail Adoption Program (TAP) represents an opportunity for businesses that benefit from the Lysterfield Mountain Bike trails or any business looking to elevate their social conscious profile to support and promote a grass roots program, by financially supporting the maintenance works on individual trails, and also by providing keen staff to volunteer and help out on designated TAP partner trail build days. TAP partners will be able to promote their brand to a defined user group of mountain bike single track riders, via the custom designed TAP signs which will be erected throughout the park for a fixed period of time.

To ensure complete transparency TAP funds will be held in a LDTR bank account separate to other funds.

A full report will be completed annually and can be supplied to TAP partners on request.

Why invest in a trail?

Lysterfield Park has a rich heritage in the sport of mountain biking within Australia. Being the host of the 2006 Commonwealth Games, Lysterfield Park has flourished and become overwhelmingly popular with thousands of mountain bike focused visitors entering and riding the park every year. Year on year, the park's mountain bike visitors has grown.

TAP funds will predominantly be used by LDTR to engage in professional trail builders to undertake maintenance works in the park, further enhancing the rider experience and thus reducing the heavy load on our volunteer crew.
