Ride the trails in remote areas on our fully guided mountain bike adventures in southern Tasmania. The guides take the time to engage with customers, offering insights into the history and environment.
See parts of Tasmania that you never knew existed, that even the locals haven’t visited. Feel the history of early pioneers and aboriginal heritage and learn about modern environmental management.
The guides at Wild Bike Tours have a passion for riding. Even more than that, they are passionate about exploring, discovery and adventure. They love to be excited, and not just by the trails, but by the surroundings as well. And they love to share their discoveries with as many people as possible, showcasing some of the best locations that Southern Tasmania has to offer.
From high value conservation areas to 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 mountain bikes ranging from small to extra large frames. They are all Giant Talon 29ers, which are a hard-tail model, primarily used for cross country riding, although they are effective for all 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.
Tours are listed under the menu headings, Eco Tours and Trail Runners. Each tour description has a booking sheet at the bottom, listing all available dates for that tour. You will notice that some of the tours don’t have dates yet. This is because we are waiting on approvals from Parks & Wildlife Tasmania. As soon as we get those (imminent!) approvals, dates will be added so you can book!
