Top 5 Reasons to Go With Escapegoat
1- The most experienced and qualified instructors
Since 2008 we have been offering the no.1 MTB experiences in South Australia. We are the industry leaders in providing Mountain bike skills training in SA, and were the first in Australia to offer instruction under British Cycling MTB Certifications back in 2008 (before Australia had any real qualifications). We now operate under British Cycling MTB certification and Mountain Bike Australia training (MTBA).
Our lead instructor is one of a handful of trainers in Australia that is now qualified to TEACH mtb instructors by MTBA, and has taught many of the other instructors in SA.
2- Great Equipment
We have a fleet of brand new 2019/20 Norco and Merida mountain bikes to ride, with great front suspension, hydraulic disc brakes and 20 gears- ride in style! Merida 140 dual suspension bikes are also available, as are Norco E-bikes, and all bikes are available to hire too! All bikes are less than 12 months old.
We’ve got great vehicles and trailers as well for getting you and your own bike around safely.
3- Fully Accredited LOCAL South Australian Tourism Business
We are a fully accredited tourism business and a licensed tour operator, and were the first commercial tour operator licensed by DENR to operate MTB tours in their Adelaide National Parks. We are also a licensed Transport business. All trips are lead by a highly qualified local mountain bike guide. We are a small family run business, so you can be sure you are supporting locals, not big interstate or overseas companies!

5- We Cater to Your Skill Level
Our day tours are specially designed to allow anyone to have a great time. If you are able to ride a bike, you can come with us! You don’t need to be a pro. We also offer custom day trips, which allow us to plan the tour exactly to your needs, and other options for the more experienced rider.
Excellent tour guide. Great seeing the koalas in their natural habitat.
Ian my guide was great. Showed me around some very nice single trails at Fox Creek. Excellent value!!!
