Hire A Top Quality MTB From Just $50 A Day. We know what it’s like to get somewhere and be keen to hit the trails, but then stuggle to find a decent bike to rent- so we are happy to rent our bikes out too. We only provide bikes we would be happy to hire, so you can be sure they will be great bikes, in good condition.
Whilst we would always suggest it is better to join us on one of our guided trips, we appreciate you may just want a bike for an afternoon, or an extra bike for visiting friends. Also, you may want to hold onto a bike for a day or so after having joined us on a trip. But do bear in mind it may be more cost effective to join us for a guiding session including transport, bike hire AND guiding, starting from $99, especially if you want to avoid spending the day getting lost or trying to work out where the trails actually are on a 5 year old map!
Please note- we do NOT have a shop, but can be available for bike hire at most times, and as such PRE-BOOKING is essential, otherwise we may be out elsewhere running trips.
Conveniently Located In Eden Hills
We are conveniently located in Eden Hills, a 20 mins drive or train ride from the city near some of the best trails around- it’s just a short spin to the MTB trails of Sturt Gorge, Craigburn Farm and Belair, and we can even provide you maps of where to go- pick up and drop off may also be possible.
We also have a universal bike rack that will fit most cars to carry up to 3 bikes available to hire for $25 a day.
For the best trail info we recommend using the Trailforks app on android or iphone. This will give you a gps map with most of the local trails on.

The Escapegoat Difference
With over 4000 happy guests, we know how to make sure you have a great time.
We specialise in small group experiences– you won’t find yourself in a group with 20 others.
We have been operating since 2008 and are the only business operating with an British Cycling level 3 MTB leader qualified instructor- this is a significant qualification, and not just a 2 day course to teach school kids to ride bikes.
We are a fully accredited tourism business and a licensed tour operator, and are the only commercial tour operator currently licensed by DEWNR to operate MTB tours in their Adelaide National Parks. We are also a licensed Passenger Transport business.
We have top-quality high end equipment and are supported by Norco bikes so you can be sure you will be riding great bikes- our hire bikes are high end bikes, and are almost all brand new models.
Ian is a qualified skills coach- not just able to ride well, we are trained to TEACH. Just because someone is a good rider it does not necessarily make them a good teacher. He is also qualified to teach MTBA skills instructors.
We received the “Certificate of Excellence” from Trip Advisor based on our continued 5* ratings and reviews for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015, and consistently voted the best outdoor activity in SA!
The scenery on the way down from Lofty is so beautiful. Both tours highly recommended!
We had a great time doing the Lofty Descents tour with Ian. A really interesting way to see parts of Adelaide you wouldn't normally get to see.
