Night Fever Guided Bike Tour - Hobart Mountain Bike Tours

Have you tried mountain biking at night? It’s an exhilarating experience that’s sure to give you a buzz!


  • Ride through Tasmania’s exciting bike trails at night
  • See wallabies and possums and if you’re lucky you might even see bats or an owl
  • Explore stunning forests with majestic eucalyptus trees and mighty ferns
  • Finish in a friendly pub for a refreshment and a chat about your ride and your next adventure
  • Night riding is an exhilarating, unforgettable experience

Your adventure starts with a relaxed trip on our bus, The Sir David, as we drive up and out of Hobart’s foothills.

Your guides will get you set up on one of our awesome bikes before we hit the beautiful tracks for 90 minutes of easy downhill cruising.

As the twilight descends we ride through stunning forests with majestic eucalyptus trees and mighty ferns. You’ll be unlucky not to see wallabies and possums and you might even see bats or an owl. The high mountain gives way to the foothills as we turn on the lights.

Darkness encroaches and the trails narrow and our vision concentrates as you feel the excitement of riding dirt in the dark. Then we hit the suburbs and the paths that take us back into town and roll up to the pub as we finish with refreshments and stories of your ride and your next adventure.

Important Notes:

1. Sunset changes daily and determines how much of the ride is done in the daylight. In the middle of the summer, most of this ride will take place in the light.

2. Riding at night is more demanding than daylight riding, even with the best lights. If this is the first time you’ve ridden off road with lights its best to take it a bit slower than you might normally. The Operator has picked a route which isn’t technically challenging.

3. The route can vary slightly depending on the ability of the group. There is one optional section of single track which is narrow and has tight corners. The alternative involves a 50m walk down a set of stairs.

4. For most people, it will be cold. The Operator provides some warm clothing but it is preferable if you bring your own warm clothing that you know will fit and you are comfortable with.

Must Do Activity In Hobart

I can't rave about Hobart MTB Tours enough. Jono is the epitome of a Tasmania. He is so friendly and helpful and that is just organising the correct Tour for you! During the tour he shares his extensive knowledge of all the areas you cycle and gives advice accordingly to ensure you have the best ride suited to your abilities. The tours take you all over Mount Wellington which is exhilarating enough if you have been to the top for the views but cycling through the woods is another thing. With the smell of Eucalyptus whilst maneuvering the twists and turns of the tracks is an experience not to be missed. I will be back!
