Bikes, beers and coffees - it doesn't get any more Canberran than that.
And with the arrival of the Handlebar cafe at Stromlo Forest Park and a steady stream of mountain biking events at the park, more Canberrans than ever are enjoying the trifecta.
Hundreds of people headed to Stromlo over the weekend to check out the action of the Canberra stage of the Fox Superflow event.
On Saturday afternoon the park was packed with riders of all ages practicing their technical skills for Sunday's big race.
Handlebar co-owner Rowan Cumming has been riding the Stromlo trails since before the 2003 bushfires destroyed many of them.
After a long day of riding, he and his mates would often enjoy a beer or two in the car park.
"So we knew what was missing," Mr Cumming said.
"One of our business partners was the type of guy who would always show up with one glove."
That's why, in addition to the cafe and bar, the team are running a bike and gear hire business to give anyone a chance to try out mountain biking.
They have both dual suspension and hard-tail bikes available for adults and kids with either half-day or full-day hire.
Mr Cumming said one of their main goals was to introduce new people to mountain biking.
Barista Charlie Walpole was not a rider before he started making coffees on weekends at Stromlo, but after only a couple of rides he went out and bought himself a brand new mountain bike.
"One day I just caved, I caught the bug," Mr Walpole said.
"I realised there's such a great sub-culture in mountain biking I never really knew about."
But he said the atmosphere at Stromlo was one that could be enjoyed by more than just mountain bikers.
A large proportion of customers, he said, were also road cyclists and residents from nearby Molonglo Valley suburbs.
Stromlo regular Bernd Brademann and his eight-year-old son Alexio took to the trails on Saturday.
Mr Brademann said the versatility of the tracks made Stromlo the best destination for mountain biking in the ACT.
"There's different styles of tracks from absolute beginner to more hardcore downhill," Mr Brademann said.
He believed Stromlo had become busier since Handlebar had opened and he said his wife would often meet him after a ride, along with their other young children, to have a coffee.
"A lot more family stuff is happening because of this activation," he said.
At the "Mecca" of mountain biking in Canada's Whistler there are between two and three vertical kilometres in trails, but despite only having only 180 metres of elevation at Stromlo, Mr Cumming said the park was "punching above its weight".
Last year there were calls from Canberra riders for more funding to be put into the Stromlo trails which were suffering from a lack of maintenance and also for more complex trails to be added to attract high level competition.
Mr Cumming said with the number of people the park attracted, it could always use more funding. He said the cafe used an eftpos-only payment system, the data from which suggested a significant growth in visitors to the park in recent months.
Sunday's main event, the Fox Superflow Canberra stage, is a unique event which is based on European and North-American enduro-style events.
It is open to participants of all ages and skill levels and the benefit is families or groups of friends can ride together from the different race sections as only specific sections count to your overall time.
Registration opens from 8am followed by a briefing and practice before racing begins at 10.30am.
