The McVilly Ladder Derby adventure is the latest offering and is not for the faint hearted.  A four night package that includes everything from airport transfers, meals and accommodation with arguably 3 of the best road, gravel and Mt bike rides in the world.

Starting in Hobart you will be treated to an amazing gastronomic experience at Frank restaurant, on Hobart’s waterfront precinct, followed by a night cap at McVilly Estate before getting a good nights rest.

Day 1

Riding includes 135km around the Huon Vally with great climbs, rolling hills and waterfront views. Finishing at Willie Smith Apple Shed the ride concludes with a big lunch and cider tasting.

Day 2

Sees an early start and bus ride to Blessington where we will saddle up and endure an epic 145km, with nearly 2500m of climbing, to take on Tasmania’s infamous Jacobs Ladder before doubling back and winding your way to Derby. Here we’ll have dinner in one of the best craft beer hotels in Australia.

Day 3

Today we put the road bikes away and grab one of the dual-suspension MTB, which we will hire on your behalf, and take on the longest and most amazing decent in the southern hemisphere, the Blue Derby Epic. There is a whole day of riding and ripping up trails before the bus will take you to Launceston airport for an evening depart.
