“Fun way to see some koalas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I did the Lofty Descent ride last week and it was fantastic! I was visiting Adelaide for business and just had a day to do some sightseeing and was so glad to have joined this tour! I do not have any mountain biking experience so I was a little nervous about the trip- but Ian did a great job of providing instruction and setting up a great ride DOWN the hill which was completely enjoyable even for a middle age mom like me. The stop at the Cleland Wildlife Park was really worthwhile - got to feed some kangaroos and emus! And then we saw a lot of koalas just napping in the trees throughout the rest of the ride down. Very fun and I highly recommend!

“We'll remember this trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

If you're looking for something a bit different while holidaying in Adelaide, as we were, and if you can ride a bike, downhill mountain biking from Mt Lofty to Adelaide is well worth some thought. We spent a great half-day with Ian on mountain bike tracks, some of them only recently opened to the public. Well organised, great views, a bit of history, easy-to-follow instructions for those not so versed in off-road cycling, and a guide who takes individual skills and expectations into consideration. Ian picks you up from your hotel and takes you to Mt Lofty. The ride finishes after a ride through Adelaide's parklands before you return to your accommodation. Great bikes, water bottles, gloves and helmets supplied. Road cycling is almost non-existent, even approaching Adelaide.

“Mt Lofty family adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

A fantastic day on Mt Lofty with Ian. We were picked up in the morning by Ian and his dad, joined a couple of others on the ride. My son (12 yrs) loved it as did my husband. We always try to book adventure type activities for our family and this certainly fitted the bill. Stopped at clevland park and fed some emus, enjoyed home made brownies, by Ian's wife.the descent down Lofty was informative, safe and a great time. Highly recommended.

“A Brilliant Morning in Adelaide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We did the Lofty Descents tour in February. Ian(and his Dad) made it a great experience. Our group consisted of experienced mountainbikers and people who had never ridden a mountain bike before, but Ian provided training/riding tips to ensure that everyone had a good time. Even the novices gained confidence, with guidance from Ian, and arrived back in the city buzzing. Ian's enthusiasm and friendly manner made this the best experience of our trip to Adelaide, and we would definitely do another tour next time we visit the city. The riding was great but we particularly enjoyed feeding the kangaroos at Cleland Park.
We would recommend this trip as a "must do" to anyone visiting Adelaide.
Thanks again Ian.
