Up early, hit Hobart’s bike trails, back before they know you’re gone

Early Morning Mountain Bike Rdidng


We’ll fit 90 minutes of sweet single mountain bike trails into your morning and still have you back in town by 9.00am with time for one of Hobart’s best espressos – no way? Yes way!

So, you’re on holidays in Hobart. There’s MONA and there’s Salamanca. Great Restaurants and trendy cafes (my favourites are Atlas Espresso and The Stagg in Elizabeth Street).

Hobart’s cool and cultured but secretly, deep down, you really wanted to go to Derby (that’s where the best riding in Tassie is, right? ) but you couldn’t convince your other half that a coffee at the “Crank It Cafe”, five hours of ripping up Derby’s best bike trails followed by 4 pints and a mixed grill at The Weldborough Pub represents a cultural holiday – so you’re in Hobart.

Good news:
  • Derby is great but there’s some amazing mountain biking in Hobart too
  • We can get you on the trails and back at the AirBnB before anyone even knows you’re gone – OH YEAH

Dawn Chorus is for addicted mountain bike riders who want a solid hit out in the early morning before the day really starts.  This route has bags of single track, some old school, some new, solid climbs, sweeping berms, scenery. You’ll need reasonable fitness ( LEVEL 3 on our rider evaluation chart ) as there is some climbing to be done.  We provide some fun hardtail trail bikes but you can choose to upgrade to a dual suspension bike for $25.


The Hobart MTB Tours booking guarantee

If you book, you’ll ride. We don’t do minimum numbers. I don’t care if no one but you turns up and I lose more money than a drunken sailor in a get rich scheme. If you book, you’ll ride. OK there are some safety issues concerning dangerous conditions but within reason if you book a tour with us you can be confident that you’re riding – even if it’s just you and me ( but I reckon you can buy the coffees )
