Ian is a legend with a great stable of all looked after bikes, he knows the local trails because he obviously loves the local trails. Spend a day out with this crew, you won't regret it.

Had a wonderful half day trip up Mt Lofty with our experienced and knowledgeable tour guide, Lee. Even though my mountain bike skills are very basic, Lee patiently explained how to navigate the technical terrain. The wildlife park was fantastic too and the small group gave the experience a more personal touch. As it was all downhill, there was no strenuous exercise involved. My teenage son loved it too and there was the opportunity for him to go at a faster pace. Highly recommend, exceeded my expectations in every way.

jay2thamax March 2021

Perfect day! Nice small group, excellent guide (good onya Lee). We had no mountain bike experience and by the end of the tour we were quite comfortable with it. The koala guarantee is legit - u will see some. Great way to break up the ride with a tour of the wildlife park too. Thanks for arranging vegan options for the morning tea too. Great central pick up location, comfortable van for transfers to Mt Lofty. I can't fault this experience at all.

helencI3692ZX March 2021

Had a great time. First time mountain biking. Our instructor Lee was a great guide, he helped us through all the technical terrain and was very patient with us. He also took time to show us around the wild life park and you can see he had a love for animals.

Great day out, the fauna park is fantastic and our guide was very informative and helpful. Must do!!

Nicole_S January 2021

My sister and myself absolutely loved this bike tour. The friendly guide, made the tour even better with the knowledge he shared at the wildlife park, and at the old historical buildings. Amazing senery, people and coffee! Would definitely do it again, highly recommend!

Apart from the excellent weather, our guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. The views were fantastic and we were lucky to get a very clear day. It was a bit of stop - start, but necessary to ensure everyone's safety and account for the different levels of rider skill. Great day!

Mike N December 2020

Give this a go, I promise you will love it! Great guide, fantastic equipment, heaps of fun and adventure.

Estelle_C October 2020

Great guide, very well looked after and great experience. Equipment was excellent and well maintained.

PeterR496 October 2020

The whole experience was fantastic from the off road mountain bike tips by Lee, the wildlife visit and welcome coffee and muffin for morning tea. Exhilarating was my description and my wife now wants to mountain bike in every city we visit. We love you Escapegoat. First class equipment too! Cheers Peter & family

We booked our downhill MTB guided ride direct with Escapegoat - and it was the highlight of our Adelaide visit. The tour is very safe, even for inexperienced riders. Bikes and helmets are provided. Our guide (Ian) took the time to explain lots to us, making it a very interesting morning. There is even a "pit stop" at an animal park included. We went in February, but it was quite cool at the top of Mount Lofty - so Ian provided fleeces and jackets for us, at no additional cost. We had a great time, and we would recommend Escapegoat to everyone. Thanks Ian.

Had a great time mountain biking down from Mt Lofty through the bike trails with our guide Lee. Booked this bike tour a few weeks back, before all the craziness. Very flexible, tailored our trip as we had to change a few details as the social isolation rules came into effect (one of the few activities that you can still do and adhere to them!) All in all we had a great day, beautiful views with a bit of adrenaline along the way.

WillfromMullum March 2020

Leigh was a great guide preparing us for any hairy bits (he called them technical!) on the downhill run from Mt Lofty. Nice break at the wildlife sanctuary and then on to finish up in the suburbs and then dropped back to hotel in town. Some parts were a bit of a challenge but that made it all the more fun for this 72 year old.

O2100GHmarcs March 2020

Awesome ride that showed off the best of Adelaide! Lee was an extremely helpful and friendly guide who stopped at each section of the trail to warn us of what was ahead. Thanks for a great experience chaps :)

julian_lv February 2020

The tour is a pleasure, the guy leading the activity was very nice and helpful during the whole trip. Going downhill was a bit intimidating at the beginning but once you time pass by and you get comfortable with the bike it is super easy and fun.

madd88 February 2020

The tour was great, really easy and well organised, the guides are super friendly and really look after you, making sure you know everything to feel safe and prepared for the descent. It's a beautiful, exciting way to be in nature and the wildlife park is a beautiful start, we even saw a wild koala on our decent.

jslondoncanada February 2020

Our Mount Lofty tour was a lot of fun! Great scenery, nice mix of wildlife as well as amazing views. The mountain biking had just the right amount of adventure for us. Ian was a great tour guide. I highly recommend this tour!

karentU4093OJ February 2020

Ian was a very thoughtful guide, always making sure the groups needs were met. This is a fun, 'soft' adventure suitable for mixed age groups. A great way to immerse yourself in the area, see Adelaide from above, meet native wildlife and enjoy the great outdoors.

taennie February 2020

it was great fun riding down the hill. guide an bikes were very good - i totally recommend this tour!

ChrisT7254 February 2020

A great half day of easy biking (for us as mountain bikers anyway), good interpretation, company and visit to the animal sanctuary/coffee shop. Well led by Ian!

YutaroEhara December 2019

Once the guide picked up us at the hotel in Adelaide, heading up to the Mount Lofty by a car with MTB! After arriving on the top, can see nice view of Adelaide then start a ride. Next, we visited Cleland wildlife park and see many kangaroos, koalas and other animals
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
