Mount Lofty Descent Bike Tour from Adelaide

    What to Expect
    Your cycling adventure starts as you’re outfitted with a high-quality mountain bike and helmet. Then leave Adelaide behind by air-conditioned 4WD vehicle for the drive up to the summit of Mount Lofty—elevation 2,329 feet (710 meters).

    During the drive, stop for a photo op above the city, with the verdant mountains and Australian bush as your backdrop. Then hop on your bike when you get to the summit, the highest point in the Mt Lofty Ranges, and follow your guide down the mountain, pedaling at a relaxed pace as you admire views of the Adelaide Hills. You’ll be cycling through Cleland Conservation Park, an 85-acre (35-hectare) bush habitat that protects an environment of bushland, stringyback forest and grassy fields; keep your eyes open for roaming animals while you ride.

    Take a break when you reach Cleland Wildlife Park for an animal encounter with some of Australia’s most beloved native creatures, from emus to wallabies to koalas, and then refuel with morning tea before returning to your bike to ride through Chambers Gully, an offshoot of Waterfall Gully, home to springs, ruins and koalas who snooze high up in the trees. Continue enjoying scenic views of the hills and the city, and finish your 2-wheeled journey on a trail that leads you into Adelaide’s quiet suburbs.

    When you reach your end point, your tour concludes with transport to your hotel.

    So grateful for Lee continuing with the bike tour when it was just myself and my husband registered and others had pulled out. The bikes were excellent (we had the dual suspension), helmets and gloves provided. The bike trails follow beautiful parts of Mt Lofty and the Adelaide

    We had a great morning, picked up from our hotel and then taken to the top of Mt Lofty. As it was just me and my wife, we had the choice of trails to get back to Adelaide so we skipped the wildlife park and took some single track down. Lee was a great guide and took us on some

    Our family of four - 13yo and 16yo children - loved the whole experience of riding down from Mt Lofty to the city. Lee was a fantastic host and ensured the ride was safe and fun. We saw several koalas in the wild and the scenery was awesome. I would highly recommend for families

    Lee was great and he had to work against a cold, blustery day. The wildlife center stop was perfect to warm our fingers and toes and see animals we hadn't yet seen on our trip. Great scenery despite the weather!
