If you like spending time outdoors, you’ll most likely enjoy a half day mountain bike tour on the Adelaide hills. You’ll see great views from hilltops, native eucalyptus forest, koalas and kangaroos. It’s a leisurley ride mostly downhill, so you don’t need to be athletic and experienced mountain bike rider to make it.
The highlights were feeding the kangaroos in Cleland wildlife park, and the beautiful descent into the valley through the natural bushland (with wild koalas!). It is downhill all the way, suitable for all abilities, and a really interesting way to see parts of Adelaide you wouldn’t normally get to see. The homemade banana bread was a lovely touch at morning tea. Thanks Ian very much!
I have been on both the winery tour and enjoyed it so much I booked the Lofty Descent.
Ian gives detailed instructions about what to expect which is great. The scenery on the way down from Lofty is so beautiful. Both tours highly recommended!
The Lofty Descent Tour was the highlight of our Adelaide trip. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the cycle which was easy yet exciting. Ian always made sure we were comfortable and know what to expected around the mountain bends. Overall a great time was had with a great guide. The mountain was beautiful, copious wild koalas were to be seen and a trip to the nature reserve was just a brilliant added extra plus the guide Ian brought along his four year old daughters delicious homemade cookies for our morning tea.
Excellent tour guide. Great seeing the koalas in their natural habitat. Very pretty trail and wildlife park got you up close to the animals. Great comfy bikes and even put up with my consistent braking.
Ian my guide was great. Showed me around some very nice single trails at Fox Creek. A nice 40 minute drive in the country from Adelaide CBD.
