Beyond Adventures

You will have one of our highly experienced (and entertaining) guides on all tours. They’ll make sure everything runs smoothly, and if you’re interested, share their local knowledge so your brain gets a workout as well as your legs. They’ll also tell you stories that may or may not be true. We’ll let you decide which ones are which, but if they warn you about drop-bears, we strongly advise you to take this seriously. Maybe.

Day Trippers

Got a weekend and want cram some adventure in but not quite sure what to do? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We can build a custom, self-propelled adventure for you based on the things you love the most. Something easy, some white knuckle stuff, some need new undies stuff, short, long, up, down, around, over – even some stuff for the ‘gram if that’s your jam – you name it, we can put it together for you.

This fantastic region has a bit of everything so we’ve got you covered. Local trails or slightly further up the road like; Moralana Scenic Route, Bunyeroo and Brachina Gorges, Mayo Gorge at Mt Little Station, and Razorback Lookout are just a few of the highlights. But honestly, give us the vibe you want and we’ll give you the itinerary that will knock your socks off.

FAQs

If you’re really enthusiastic you could ride, but we suggest driving and hey, it’s not that far away. If you’re flying in or don’t have a car or just can’t be stuffed driving, we can collect you in our super comfy shuttle bus with a purpose-built bike trailer. Hey presto, no problemo.

Google Maps directions from Adelaide to Melrose.

Melrose is great for trails and adventures but isn’t exactly a thriving metropolis, but we recommend staying with us at Under the Mount. Because it’s bloody amazing and we love bike riders.  

The shuttle seats 10 in comfort on the inside. An extra two on the roof if you like fresh air. Also, this is not a thing. It’s 10. Do not get on the roof.

We also have a super new comfy 4WD, so we can take more of your crew if you need us to. 

A really good one (Shingleback Off Road Outrigger Bike Trailer). Because we love our bikes too. It holds 14 bikes like we hold a cold drink at the end of the day. 

Bring your essentials and make sure your bike is well maintained and service (eg prior to your tour.)  

Bring specific parts to suit your bike (At least one spare tube).  We will have a limited amount of spare tubes, lube, bike pump and tools. Any parts used will be charged at normal rates on top of your tour cost.

This is easy, our tours accommodate for the less experienced. They can ride in the shuttle bus with us and we can rest their arse and legs. Guides can drop them at bespoke places to hike or grab coffee at the next town and wait. They will not be left out. Talk to the tour coordinator to work out the best way forward.

Yes, our guides are all super experienced, fit and are experts in assessing your fitness levels. If you’d like to ride extra hard, we’ll team you with an appropriate co-pilot and we can pretty much guarantee it won’t be our guide who needs to worry about keeping up.

Yes, we have a range of gravel, hybrid, e-bikes and mountain bikes for you to choose from depending on your personal preference and fitness level. And don’t worry, we don’t have crap bikes. Our bikes are all amazing and even though we know your personal bike is the best bike and you love it beyond words, we’re sure you’ll be happy with ours. And we won’t tell your bike you’re cheating on it if you don’t.
