Corporate, special and bike events can be arranged. Bike hire is also available.
Come and explore the Flinders Ranges by bike with Escapegoat Adventures! We specialise in small group trips to the heart of the Flinders Ranges.
Flinders Ranges by Bike is a 200 kilometre cycle adventure, which starts at Wilpena Pound, and takes in some of the most stunning areas of this amazing location. The loop, created by local land owners, takes you through private properties as well as National Park land and covers sections not normally open to the public. It links part of the Mawson Trail with an existing network of old pastoral trails on each property.
It takes four days to ride, with an average of 50 kilometres per day and a good level of fitness and mountain bike experience is recommended. You will need plenty of stamina but a reasonably fit rider should have no problems. Full vehicle support is provided by our four wheel drive.
We also visit Melrose, a stunning town in the Southern Flinders Ranges. We will explore the single-track trails of this Mecca of mountain biking to offer you another side to the riding in this stunning area of Australia.
Group size of 4-8 riders.
Trips run spring and autumn.

Experience a unique adventure and see Adelaide in a totally different way. We will pick you up from central Adelaide, and transport you to the summit of Mount Lofty, which offers stunning views of Adelaide and the plains below. From here it is downhill all the way to Adelaide.
We will provide you with a good quality mountain bike and helmet, and make sure you are comfortable and happy with your bike. It is then a short ride though Cleland Conservation Park to our first stop of the day, Cleland Wildlife Park. Here you will have a chance to wander at leisure and feed or pat kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, emus and many other native wildlife.
After a little morning tea, it is then time to continue our descent down to Adelaide. We are the only tour operator permitted to bring riders into Cleland Conservation Park. We will then ride through stunning natural bush, and perhaps see more koalas or kangaroos in their native environment, along with more stunning views of Adelaide.
Finally we will cruise through the quiet roads and suburbs of Adelaide, to the end of the trip.
Operates most Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.Family Friendly
