21/2 hour Hobart excursion that's an easy 23 km downhill ride. Just sit on a mountain bike and use a hand brake if you need it! Great way to see Mount Wellington and to enjoy the spectacular views fro the summit before you ride.

It is exciting experience on off-road. Bike performance is enough for the trip. Wonderful!! Tour guiders have enough explanation.

Was surprised by the quality of the bikes, they ride really smooth. Can't really fault anything with this tour, they just got everything right. Would love to do it again.
