### Mid week group bookings, team bonding and corporate days also available, please contact us.
### See a day that is not available, feel free to give us a call to see if we can help out.
### BMB self guided tours and hire require a minimum number of 4 riders on the day to go ahead. This does not mean you need to have 4 people in your group, but means 4 riders in total across any of our rides on the day. eg, 2 riders book the Oaks Trail and 2 riders book Hanging Rock Trail, means the day will go ahead! The booking system will send a pending order email confirmation upon your online booking. When total bookings hit 4 on any given day, bookings/rides will be automatically confirmed. Regardless of whether ride goes ahead or not, you will receive a call from the owner (Sam) the day before your ride to confirm the status and info about the ride and logistics. Rides that do not go ahead will be instantly refunded or you can choose another date and the booking will be moved...whatever suits you best! The above is not totally inflexible and Sam will help, with pleasure, where ever possible.
ABOUT THE RIDE AND WHATS INCLUDED
Included: Mountain bike hire includes bike, helmet and maps.
You can expect your ride experience to last from 2.5 to 4 hours.
The Great Blue Mountains Trail is an ambitious project to develop a regional trail from east to west across the Blue Mountains ridgeline, accessible from all towns, villages and train stations along the way. It’s currently open from Leura to Blackheath, and is well signposted the whole way.
This ride is perfect for beginners who are not looking for anything too technical. It follows a combination of quiet roads and purpose-built trails that shadow the highway and rail line.
As with most rides in the mountains, you’ll experience amazing scenery, passing though some lovely forest canopy and popping out for some captivating clifftop views – the Hydro Majestic Hotel at Medlow Bath is a perfect place to stop for some food and photos.
There’s plenty to check out in the historic township of Blackheath too, as well as plenty more options for lunch or a coffee before the return trip.
If you’re starting out from Katoomba, the ride back trip has a little more downhill to make it easier on tired legs. Of course, you can always jump on the train too if you’ve already emptied your tank!
All in all, this is a super day out – and there’s no better way to explore the Blue Mountains than to hit a purpose-built rail on a Blue Mountain bike!
