Loved it but hands got too cold. Would do it again with a good pair of gloves. The track was more challenging than I expected. Great for people a bit younger than me . I would have liked to have had a bit more practice.More

Way better than expected. This was on a proper biking trail with plenty of mud! Bikes are auto so no worries for anyone who has no experience. Just expect to get wet. Best done after a good rain.

We had lot of fun riding the track. It had snowed the days before so it added to the experience. Chris was a great guide and took the time to explain what was going to happen. I sure will do it again in the future.

We did the archery and clay bird shooting today with Chris. Chris is a top bloke and did a great job, he made sure we were all safe and knew what we were doing. We had so much fun and would definitely do this again....More

Such an epic adventure with Chris as our guide. Riding through puddles and sliding through paddocks was an awesome way to start the day. The added mud facial was a bonus.
