“Two different experiences - both superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011 via mobile

First up was a single track mountain biking experience through the beautiful karri forests. Rob immediately made you feel at ease - great teacher, had good bikes and concerned about environment. Fabulous day.

Two days later and different tour with some friends and Tam through four wineries. Tam was so lovely and knowledgeable about wines. End day at Stella Bellamy where she works with lovely simple lunch and final tasting conducted by Tam.

Tam and Rob great couple and boy they work and play hard! You will not regret using them.

“A different Margaret River experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011

What a wonderful way to experience a side to Margaret River that is not very obvious. Rob is passionate about showing his guests the wonderful forests and trails that abound in the Margaret river area. He has a unique ability to judge riders fitness levels and abilities and level of experience and
to tailor the Trails to suit the group. The bikes are superb quality and the organization is excellent. We enjoyed our coffee ride so much with Rob,that we booked the Boranup forest tour and this was the highlight of our time in Margeret river. Truly a memorable experience. Rob introduced us to the whole Margaret river area in such an affable way that we will definitely be back for more.

“4 of us spent a morning with Rob...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2010

4 of us spent a morning with Rob barrelling down some amazing tracks he has made in the forest to the sth of Marg River. It was brilliant & he coped well with our differing ability levels. Top notch guide, wonderful forest & great off-road cycling. Also went on to coffee tasting @ Stella bella winery which Rob recommended - ended up meeting Tam his wife at the latter, perfect day all round. Definitely recommend

“Lovely Wine Cycle Tour in Margaret River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2010

I did this tour with my parents on a recent trip to Margaret River. It is a novel way to explore some of the regions wineries and vinyards. Some good choices in the boutique wineries visited including Cape Mentelle to purchase a bottle of Botrytis Viognier which went down very well with dad. As mentioned above, the tours are kept small - there was only the 3 of us on our trip and it finished with a great local platter of food - well deserved after the cycling. Thanks Tam for a lovely day out.

“A fun day and a novel way to visit wineries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2010

My husband and I recently spent 4 days in Margaret river and did the Sip n cycle ride which is run by Dirty Detours . We met at 9.30am and visited 4 different wineries, all very different, which gave us a bit of an insight into what Margaret River wineries have to offer. The whole journey was approx 18 kilometres but the vast majority of it is very gentle cycling. Neither my husband nor I are particulary fit and we managed without any problems. The tour ended around 2.30 with a lovely picnic lunch at a boutique winery. The group sizes are always kept small...there were only 4 of us ( max 7) which means you are not rushed and we really got to learn a lot about the different wines at a pace which suited us. Tam who ran the tour for us, is a lovely lady who couldn't have been more helpful. It is a fun day, and somehow because you are cycling in between, the wines seem even more delicious!
