Blue Derby Pods Ride

Blue Derby Pods Ride is an awesome 3-day mountain biking experience. During the experience, you will traverse the world-renowned Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails, indulge in Tasmanian food and wine and relax in unique accommodation pods.

Directors of Blue Derby Pods Ride, Steve and Tara Howell dreamt of creating a unique and boutique mountain biking experience and often talk about “flow” - a state of being, when suddenly, life is simple. It’s fun, it’s being close to nature, and it stimulates focus – a combination that allows you to achieve clarity like no other.

Over the three days of your Blue Derby Pods Ride experience, you are guided along world-class trails so you may achieve your very own moments of flow.

A counterpoint to your days of adventure on your bike, is the luxury of staying in unique and private accommodation in the heart of the Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails. The central hub building peeks through a copse of Tasmanian Blackwood trees and down to the Cascade River Valley below and after each evening of fine Tasmanian food and wine, laughter and relaxation, you retire to your unique, architecturally-designed pod. The picture window behind the bed makes it feel like you are sleeping under the stars, and on a clear night, the universe opens up to you in all its glory.

Days of adventure, laughter and flow call for exceptional food and wine. This is one of the reasons the team at Blue Derby Pods Ride have teamed up with local chef Daniel Alps of Alps and Amici to develop a menu that focuses on local produce and features the best of Northern Tasmania’s specialty food producers.

Over the duration of the experience guests have the opportunity to test not only their riding skills but their tastebuds as well. This is a tour for those with a sense of adventure, but also for those who enjoy comfort at the end of the day. Blue Derby Pods Ride is a fresh and unique Tasmanian experience.

Join them and experience the flow!
