Blue Mountains: Mountain e-Bike Ride, Narrowneck Plateau

9. Blue Mountains: Mountain e-Bike Ride, Narrowneck Plateau

HOLY MOLY!!! You want views? The only way to do this ride is on our electric e-bikes! This is an amazing dirt fire trail and from start to finish we do approx. 30km and climb 900 vertical meters... that's a lot of HILLS!! Trail surface has loose rocks with some steep descents and unskilled/unconfident riders are likely to fall, so If your skills are not that great, you should check out the Hanging Rock ride with its amazing views...but without the big hills! The spectacular Narrowneck trail follows a ridge-line deep into the valley, offering exhilarating scenic views across the Megalong Valley in the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. Setting out from Katoomba, you do a short ride on tarmac road and then hit the dirt and head deep into the undulating trails of this un-spoilt wilderness area of the Megalong and Jamison Valleys. This ride like most in the Blueys, is an out and back

What people are saying about Katoomba

From pick up to being dropped off Robert was fantastic and very informative We did the trip on 22 Oct and the weather held out all day so we saw the 3 sisters and did all 3 rides at scenic railway Lunch was good, and as we had a spare hour Robert took us to a couple of extra places Featherdale park was great as I wanted to feed the kangaroos, Robert took me straight to them so I had plenty of time to spend with them, that is something on my bucket list I will never forget Robert is great and funny as well as full of chat, if you get him as your driver your in for a great day I would definitely give him 17/17 he knows why

The tour was fantastic particularly because our guide Kat was superb. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was better than ever experienced on any guided tour before. She was able to talk constantly throughout the day on a massive range of subjects all related to the region and Australia in general. The day was absolutely packed with activities including the Blue mountains, a guided trip to the zoo and a boat trip.

We were blessed with a beautiful weather and a wonderful guide, Adam from Anderson Tours. Adam kept us all awake with his jokes and knowledge of the places in the Blue mountains. We had a good tour with a good lunch up the mountain and covered all the itineraries. This tour is highly recommended
