GBMT (Greater Blue Mountains Trail) - Self Guided (CONFIDENT BEGINNER FRIENDLY) - Extras Package
- Продолжительность: 3 час. (прибл.)
- Место встречи: Blackheath, NSW
- Код предложения: GBMTEXTRA
This is a self-guided ride. We meet you near the start of the trail, and give you a comprehensive rider briefing before you set off.
### Start times can vary by up to 30 minutes either way, depending on the logistics of the day. As we offer a fully mobile service and meet at various locations, some flexibility may be required ;-) Thanks in advance!
### BMBA self guided tours and hire require minimum numbers for the day to go ahead. The booking system will send a pending order email confirmation upon your online booking. When minimum bookings are received, bookings/rides will be automatically confirmed. Regardless of whether ride goes ahead or not, you will receive an email from the owner (Sam) the night 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.

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. I does have quite a few short sharp hills thoughout the ride, so e-bikes are a great option.
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. You are not totally immersed in nature on this ride and cars are never to far from the trail. We recommend Anvil Rock for the perfect beginner entry.
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.
All in all, this is a super morning out – and there’s no better way to explore the Blue Mountains than to hit a purpose-built trail on a Blue Mountains bike!
