Experience true wilderness with Wild Bike Tours. We offer an assault on your senses: surround yourself in the smells of the forest, ocean and mountain air. Feel the rush of wind as you ride down the slopes of mountains. Listen to the boom of the surf as it rolls in to meet ancient headlands. Gaze in awe at the incredible views. Share the wonder of the history of Tasmania.
Wild Bike Tours will take you and your friends deep into the remote wilderness of Tasmania for a full day adventure ride. Or, if you’re short on time, there are half-day offerings available close to the city of Hobart, yet equally as exhilarating.
Visit World Heritage listed wilderness, coastal plains, untouched beaches, mountain regions and watch out for all kinds of wildlife. See parts of Tasmania that you never knew existed, that most locals only know of through rumour and here-say. Feel the history of early pioneers and aboriginal heritage and learn about modern environmental management.
With high value conservation areas and technical descents, the tours are graded on ability and fitness. From the easy tour for those new to mountain biking, to intermediate for those looking for a challenge, right through to the physical demands expected of the more advanced riders.
All adventure rides include transport to and from the trails in the “Troopy”, an intimate ride that can’t help but break the ice.
Your bike or ours
Wild Bike Tours has a full compliment of Giant Talon mountain bikes ranging from small to large frames. They are a hard-tail model, primarily used for cross country riding, although they are effective for most styles of riding.
If you prefer to bring your own bike, we have a modern trailer designed to keep your bike in pristine condition. The bikes are anchored by the wheels, with no other part of the bike touching the trailer. You can rest assured that your bike will be looked after, and you can have the riding experience that you desire.
If you want to use our bikes with your pedals, we can do that too!
Safety of our guests is paramount. The guides at Wild Bike Tours are there to ensure your safety first and foremost, which is why there is one guide for every 4 participants. Unfortunately, accidents can happen, so we have taken a range of measures to minimise risk. All guides are trained in Remote Area First Aid; we have a range of technology at hand, including UHF Radios, a satellite phone and a registered Personal Locator Beacon (PLB/EPIRB); safety checks are conducted on all bikes beforehand and; the guides have a wealth of riding knowledge at hand.
Where we are
Wild Bike Tours doesn’t have a shop front. We take bookings online and by phone.
Whenever we set of on an adventure ride, we begin and end on the Brooke Street Pier, Hobart. The Troopy stops near the MONA Ferry Terminal for pick up and drop off. Group bookings can be collected at accommodation by prior arrangement.
