Australian Bike ToursbikeNOW have been taking schools and corporate groups into the wilderness since 1998, during that time we have fine tuned our programs and now offer bike tours to the public.
Experience Some Great Rides With Some Awesome Guides
We regularly run tours at Mt Buller, Castlemaine Goldfields and Lysterfield that you can now participate in using your own equipment or ours. These ride selections incorporate some of the most awesome mountain bike trails you will ever experience, guaranteed! The trails can be ridden (or walked) by anybody of reasonable fitness. We’ve taken men and women from 14 to 65 years of age, so all can enjoy the trails. You don’t need to be a good MTB rider however you do need to be competent on a bicycle. We’ll teach you the off road skills from beginners to advanced. Our programs are not about how fast you are, we focus on developing your skills.
