Know More about this tour

Take in the views from the distant mountain ranges of the southwest, to the sprawling city of Hobart below, then follow your guide on a downhill descent of the mountain. Watch the alpine terrain gradually being replaced by a magnificent forest and stop on several occasions to take in the varying views and snap a picture or two.

The winding mountain road takes you down to the foothills where you can choose to experience the thrill of the off-road section. Finish the 21 kilometer cycling trip after riding through the outer suburbs of South Hobart and Battery point and complete the journey at Hobart's waterfront.

This Mount wellington cycling tour is fun designed for all levels of fitness!

Off-road Riding:
For the more adventurous amongst the group, there is an opportunity to let loose on approximately 5km of off-road riding. Those not interested in hitting the dirt trails, can happily roll down the hill with the support van behind and meet the group at the resting and snack spot around 20 minutes later. The whole group will then ride together into the city of Hobart. This trail goes via historic Battery point and concludes in Salamanca place on the waterfront of Hobart.

    A well organised and fun experience. Well worth doing especially if the day is bright and sunny as we were lucky enough to have. Thanks to the team

    Great family fun day and way for a scenic introduction to Hobart. Make sure you bring a water bottle (we forgot) and your gloves 🧤 all in all well worth it and a great experience :) Carly was a wonderful guide with great local knowledge to share 😊 very accommodating for beginners through to more experienced or confident riders

    Callum was great taking us down the mountain - he helped me return to the group when I accidentally sped past them not seeing the group waiting on the side . I hadn’t ridden a bike in 30 years so it was daunting going down the mountain trying to figure out gears and seeing cars passing by. Not for the faint hearted - you do need a bit of nerve. People in the cars were great and patient and we had a van following us behind to make sure we were safe . We did have a few falls but all riders just simply jumped back on. Often the accidents happened when they were not focusing on the road. There were a few off road tracks which also tested skill. Recommend comfortable pants that don’t get caught up in the pedals and a warm jacket and gloves for grip. You will be talking about the trip days after whether you return unscathed or were covered in bruises - you only live once.

    Riding guide Callum's inclusion of First Nation's People's experience of colonialism, and the necessity for truth telling before Australia can move forward into healing and justice.

    Really enjoyed this experience; so much better than sitting on a bus tour! We had a group of 8 and our guide Nadine was excellent and patient with those who needed to tackle the offroad section a little slower. We were fortunate to have excellent weather and superb views over Hobart.

    Great experience and certainly not hard and would do again. Weather was good a little cool at the top but you warm up on the way down.

  • 22-Mar-2022

    Highlight of our visit to Hobart. The guides were both entertaining, informative and thoughtful. Highly recommend for anyone wanting a mini adventure.

    Trip to the summit of Kunyayi for amazing views across Hobart, Derwent estuary and beyond. Then it’s time to saddle up for an epic descent down the mountain while the wind whistles and you feel the rush. Only downside is need to concentrate on road so do not get as much time to enjoy the views on way down!

    Great experience even for novice riders such as us, Guides very friendly helpful and informative! Saw parts of Hobart that you wouldn’t normally see brilliant way to spend a morning
