What You Can Expect

Mount Wellington Descent Cycling Tour departs Hobart

Mt Wellington Descent Cycling Tour from Hobart

Your Hobart cycling adventure starts as you’re outfitted with a mountain bike and helmet. From the top of Mt Wellington, admire the view of the sprawling city and River Derwent before hopping on your bike and taking off with your guide down the mountain. As the alpine terrain turns into a more verdant forest environment, make stops to enjoy the scenery and take photos.

Your winding route takes you into the Wellington foothills, where you can detour into an off-road section, if you wish (see below for more details). Then continue into the suburbs of South Hobart and past historical Battery Point, finishing your 2-wheeled journey on the Hobart waterfront at Salamanca Place.

This biking tour is designed for all levels of fitness; total cycling distance is 13 miles (21 km).

Off-road biking:
If you’re feeling adventurous during your bike tour, you may veer off the bike track into approximately 3 miles (5 km) of dirt-trail off-road cycling before meeting back up with the rest of the group about 20 minutes later at a rest stop. The whole group will then finish the bike tour together by riding into Hobart. (If you do not take the off-road route, the support van will follow to the meeting point.)

It took me a while to get a hang of the bike. But once I did it, it was thrilling to decent Mount Wellington with these guys. Very nice organised.

This was a great way to see Hobart from the top of the mountain and a fun ride down. Staff was really friendly and tried to accommodate us going all the way to the top since there were recent road closings due to icing on the road. Overall a great experience!

Great fun, and catered for those of us who were a bit nervous and those who were confident participants. Good quality bikes and top notch guides. Rug up as its cold at the top.

I was a bit worried about doing such a big downhill ride, but the guide and bus driver were great. It was very well run so that there was no pressure to go faster than you wanted to go and the more confident/adventurous people got the chance to go as fast as they liked and do the off road riding. The mountain was amazing - cold, rainy and foggy at the top but clearing up as the ride progressed. The bikes and gear were well maintained. I really enjoyed the afternoon.

Well, when we reached the end of the bike ride my 16 year old son said, Mom, that was great! Can we do it again? Right now. Doesn't get much better from a 16 year old after spending a few hours with his mom.
