Spend a long weekend riding Australia's original mountain bike destination; Mount Buller. Home to over 100km of mad trails just waiting for your hoot'n and holler'n!
We'll tackle their expansive range of stacked cross country loops, throw in a flow trail descent, reach terminal velocity down the Delatite river trail and tackle the crown jewel of the Mount Buller trail network in the Australian Alpine Epic. We will pick you up from Melbourne, get you there, show you all the action and hidden secrets of the trails so you'll be riding them like a local by the end.

XC STACKED LOOPS - Friday
The birth place of big mountain riding in Australia. So many trails and even over 3 days we won’t cover them all! We'll depart from Melbourne and make the journey to the high country. We'll grab some supplies and make the drive up the mountain to Buller Village, sort out your gear and bike before hitting the trails. We'll hit up the cross country stacked loops for a few hours of single track "yew"s. We will finish up the day spinning laps of their modular pump track before cooking up a BBQ feast for dinner.
RIDE TIME: Up To 4hrs
AUSTRALIAN ALPINE EPIC - Saturday
The ride of all rides: The Australian Alpine Epic. 43km of back country riding magic! Climbing 1,245m in elevation and dropping 2,187m for the day, every pedal is worth it for the 8km descent at the end! With breathtaking views to break up some of the climbs, this ride is one to tick off the bucket list. Send off the day with a spectacular sunset from the summit of Mount Buller.
RIDE TIME: Up to 8hrs, inc Return Shuttle
MEALS: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
DELATITE RIVER TRAIL - Sunday
Release your inner speed demon as we pin a few runs of the picturesque Delatite River trail. 16km from the Village to the bottom of the mountain with 13 river crossings, it’s a trail for everyone! Not a technical trail but it’s sheer descending length puts a smile on the face of the first time rider to the most advanced. We'll link the top section in with Copperhead; a descending flow trail before it spits us out in Mirimbah Park on the banks of the Delatite River and a perfect way to wrap up the tour before our drive back to Melbourne.
RIDE TIME: Up To 5hrs, inc Shuttles
MEALS: Breakfast & Lunch
Let's throw down some details about the tour that may help you decide if it is for you. We've taken care of pretty much everything so all you need to do is show up and be ready for one hell of a time. If these sit well with you, continue on to see what all they hype is about!

You will earn your turns some days while others include shuttles uplifts to maximise your hoot factor. Most of the climbs aren't huge with the exception of the Epic, that's a big day all round!
The majority of trails we will ride are rated as Intermediate (Blue) while the Epic is classified as Advanced (Black), mostly due to its remoteness.
Think of the ride times listed in the itinerary as a rough guide to how long we may be on our bikes for rather than pure pedal time.
We provide all meals from dinner on the first day to lunch on the last including hot breakfasts and a fresh brew of coffee every morning!
Our nights on tour will be spent in lodge styled share accommodation ranging from twin to quad share. The lodge chosen offers great communal spaces so you wont be locked in your room each evening. All bedding is included.
We'll be cruising around in style in our pimped out mini van. More important than our transportation though is that of your bike. We've got a sweet custom trailer built up that will transport your pride and joy to ensure it stays safe the whole journey.
We cap our tours out at 10 with a guide to rider ratio of 1:5.
We have a few options you can select and add to your tour if you so please. Simply select the options during the booking process.
If you don't want to travel with your bike, we can help you out with a hire bike for an extra $300.
