3-day Iconic Blue Derby Experience

Launceston and North, Tasmania

Did you know there is a place where you can ‘find your flow’ on two wheels instead of a yoga mat? This incredible 3-day, all-inclusive experience will have you immersed in a lush rainforest in North East Tasmania, which is home to the Blue Derby Pods Ride.

Each day, you’ll ride through the breathtaking Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails Network with your expert guide, and don’t worry – even beginners are catered for within the 100+ kilometres of trails. They’ll help you feel the joy, and freedom, that comes with tackling some world-class berms. 

You’ll be nourished by delicious local fare – think slow breakfasts, picnic lunches and gourmet dinners that celebrate the flavours of Tasmania. And you’ll rest each night in one of only four cosy, architecturally designed accommodation Pods, nestled in the bush with views to the stars. Plus, there’s plenty of time to take it slow – grab a book from the extensive library, enjoy some forest bathing or roll out that mat.

We love that this luxury mountain biking experience is not just for seasoned riders – budding bikers are very welcome – and they may even get more out of it! Trips depart every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
