### 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.
One of our favouite and most popular rides on the mountain. A great ride for all fitness and experience levels and wont leave you exhausted at the end of it. The Hanging Rock view will blow your sock off. Do you dare to climb out on it? Expect wobbly legs just looking at it. When you have finished this amazing ride, check out some of the amazing cafes in the Blackheath Village.
With scenic valley views across the Grose Valley and crisp mountain air, this ride follows a rough fire trail along the ridgeline to the spectacular Baltzers Lookout at Hanging Rock. Unlike other lookouts in the mountains, there is no safety fence here to separate you from one particularly large drop!
This is your typical "out and back” Blue Mountains ride – the easy navigation and the short distance make it an ideal ride for less experienced cyclists looking to clock up some time on the dirt and get closer to nature. That’s not to say more experienced cyclists won’t enjoy it…the flowing trails will bring a smile to any rider’s dial, and there are also plenty of water bars to let you get some air time. And besides, the views are more than enough to keep everybody happy anyway!
There are a few short climbs, but they are all easily walked if you need to. If you are looking for a longer ride, you can extend this ride to include a trip to Anvil Rock and take in even more breathtaking views.
