Best experience in Hobart

Was surprised by the quality of the bikes, they ride really smooth. Can't really fault anything with this tour, they just got everything right. Would love to do it again.

My sister and I booked this ride a month or so before as we had a cruise planned with an overnight stop in Hobart. We were able to book it over the phone directly with the company with little hassle. They request a credit card be provided to secure the booking however the money is not deducted until the day.... More

We had an AMAZING RIDE with Mt. Wellington Descent. Starting at the peak with winter jackets and cold temperatures, we had so much fun speeding down the road on great mountain bikes. About 2/3 down the mountain, we were given the choice to go off-road taking the forested trails for the finish... Since the start of the trails looked a... More

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. You don't need to be a fit person to do the ride. Mountain is quite cool up the top. Breath taking views. I would highly recommend.

One of the best things we've ever done. The guys were fantastic hosts and guides. The views were amazing and the ride was spectacular. Only do the off-road section if you're confident on the bike and pretty strong. It's a real thrill but there's a big risk of falling off or losing control of the bike if you're not sure... More

This was the most amazing way to see Mt Wellington and was exhilarating flying down the mountain on awesome mountain bikes. We had an option of off road riding which isn't for everyone but if you are a reasonably confident rider it was so much fun. I had never ridden off-road before and loved it. It's not too demanding as... More

This was a fun excursion with friendly guides. The bikes are in good condition and the ride was beautiful and easy (because it's mainly down-hill). There's no pressure to go at any pace other than what you're comfortable with. They provide jackets and gloves which were very welcome upon getting out of the van up the Mountain. There are also...

We were collected at an easily marked pick up point across the road from the information centre, Hobart. Driven to the Peak of Mt Wellington with opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the bicycles. Then, a completely enjoyable bike ride down the mountain, past Cascade Brewery and through the streets of Hobart....all with an experience guide who helped and accommodated the... More

Mike was a great young guy who led our tour, a recent law grad from Uni Tas and very informative about the Hobart area and its history. We were lucky enough to crack a really great day for our ride with no need for bike gloves or extra layers to stay warm. There were 7 in our group, a wide... More

ThIs activity has been on my (not bucket) list of Hobart activities for a couple of years. So glad we got round to it on our last day in Tassie. Visitor centre staff ( in Davey Street) were incredibly helpful and arranged the booking just 1/2 an hour before the departure. I hadn't cycled for a while but the guide,Augie... More
