Derby Mountain Biking Trip

Contact: Andrew
Accommodation: Free camping, Derby.
Additional Costs: Shared transport costs if travelling from Launceston.

Tasmania’s mountain biking scene has taken off and if you are a moderately serious rider, you had better not miss riding at Derby. Located in the north-east of the state, Derby is a quaint village 90 min from Launceston with world-class mountain biking infrastructure and excellent free camping.

Dual suspension bikes can be hired on site, and local cafes can provide some meals. The area has plenty of riding options including commercial shuttle services to the top of some trails, crazy enduro trails and graded cross country trails.

We will spend two days exploring the area which varies from rainforest to granite boulder-strewn spurs and interesting old tin mining relics.
