Have you tried mountain biking at night? It’s an exhilarating experience that’s sure to give you a buzz!
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.
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.
Meeting point: The Stagg Cafe, 138 Elizabeth St, Hobart
Thank you for your kind words Paul, I had a lot of fun too. Cheers Jono
