Today are the types of days I dreamt of owning a business for. Wayne is finally back on the road bike packing after a solid week and a half of waiting for a replacement wheel, we helped Wayne continue his amazing ride by helping him out with a spare bike for a week while evolution went to work on hunting him down a wheel , he returned the favour off his own back by sweeping our floors and washing our bikes, numerous times we told him itโ€™s not needed how ever he continued.. mate itโ€™s people like you that make derby and the bike community so good to be apart of. thank you for all you did and safe and happy travels for the rest of the holiday! We Canโ€™t wait to meet you again for a beer and hear about the rest of the trip, if you see him out and about say gday you wonโ€™t meet a nicer bloke!

Just arrived at Big Mountain Derby...

The past year has been very challenging for the bicycle industry, and with the global supply chain issues set to continue for some time yet, new bike stock remains in limited supply.

We ordered several Kona Process models in early 2021 for delivery later in the Spring. Sadly, these bikes never arrived. But, finally some good news!

We have just received two new Kona bikes, a large Process 153 DL 29 & Process 24 available for hire now. Book now & beat the July 1st price increase.

Due to a cancelled customer order, this Rallon is ready to ship from Spain and could be yours if you act now!

Due to a cancelled customer order, this Rallon is ready to ship from Spain and could be yours if you act now!

2022 Orbea Rallon M10 Purple Large

The M10 model is priced at $9399 and relies on Shimano XT four-piston brakes, which perform at the same level as their more expensive XTR counterparts. Itโ€™s the only model to feature SRAM shifting components. The 12-speed GX drivetrain delivers a solid performance at a fair price and only a slight weight penalty compared to the flagship XX1 model. The M10 model rolls on an aluminium Race Face Turbine R30 wheelset, which can also be found on the third pre-configured build, the M-Team.

"The 2022 Orbea Rallon is for those who are looking for a thrill on their home trails and take on the competition at the weekend races. It requires a certain level of skill but rewards an active and aggressive riding style with plush and active suspension, offering sufficient reserves for wild manoeuvres." - Enduro MTB Magazine

Want to help save the native forests around @bluederby and the rest of beautiful Tasmania?

Then please keep reading...

Reposted from @bluederbywild This is Krushka's forests CC119A logged unlawfully by government logging agency Sustainable Timber Tasmania and the Forest Practices Authority of Tasmania.

The peaks beyond Krushka's forests are the iconic Atlas peaks that hold the @bluederby Mountain Bike Trails of the same name, which are scheduled for logging next year under the same unlawful system we are taking to the Supreme Court of Tasmania.

Our legal action on the unlawful logging of two Krushka's forests is a landmark test case for all native forest logging in Tasmania that has been overseen by the government for decades. Our case will expose the systemic rot that has allowed the logging of our Gondwana forests and threatened species habitat, all subsidised by the taxpayer.

Native forest logging in Tasmania is unviable, unsustainable and unlawful. Help us hold the government to account, donate to our Legal Fighting Fund via the link in our bio or at bluederbywild.org

Our forests are worth more standing

Absolutely the best bloody news we've had in ages! Great job Blue Derby Wild ๐Ÿ˜Š

It's not over yet, so if you haven't yet signed the petition, head on over to the website and please do so.

Reposted from Blue Derby Wild] Breaking news, the Supreme Court of Tasmania has issued an injunction on logging and all forestry operations in Krushka's forests.

This is a first in Tasmania for a court to issue an order to halt an active native forest logging operation.

All logging, machinery and log truck activities must halted as of today till the case comes before the court at a date to be decided

11/04/2022

Now that the 2021-22 season is drawing to a close, weโ€™re reviewing the season from an operational stand point and implementing some changes to improve the customer experience.

Some of our current initiatives that weโ€™ll roll over into the 2022-23 season include;
โ€ข Half-day bike hire โ€“ rent a bike for 4-hours from 08:30 or 12:30 at a reduced rate.
โ€ข Early pick up* โ€“ customers can request an early pick up (08:00) to ensure they make their shuttle uplift on time.
โ€ข Hire bikes will continue to be supplied with flat pedals, water bottle cage, spare tube, tool kit, & a Fox helmet is included also. We do not supply SPDโ€™s but are happy to fit yours.
โ€ข Full-face helmet* โ€“ upgrade to a Fox full-face helmet for added protection.
โ€ข Tour guide* - book one of our accredited tour guides and really make the most of your Blue Derby experience.

* Additional charge applies.

Big Mountain is moving to a paperless waiver system. In addition to booking your bike hire online, you can now also sign our e-waiver online. In addition to saving paper, this has the added benefit of saving you time when picking up your hire bikes.

Please Note: Just like you do when picking up a hire car, you will still need to provide your drivers license and a valid credit card (for the security deposit).

In addition to bike hire, we can also hire you a purpose built 12-bike MTB trailer for safely transporting your crew's bikes during your stay in Derby.

And, we have a Shingleback 5-bike MTB rack available for self-shuttles.

Watch this space for news about our new tour packages also.

During this period of uncertainty of when new bike stock will finally become available, we have been fortunate to secure several new Orbea Occam bikes for our bike hire fleet for delivery in the Spring, just in time for the new season.

As a result of global supply chain issues and rising fuel costs we have seen two price increases for new bikes this year alone! Sadly, we will also be forced to put our prices up, but if you book your bike hire now you can beat the price rise effective July 1st.

These bikes can be booked online now via our website and are available from September 1st.

Easter will shortly be upon us and now is the time to book your next MTB adventure to Blue Derby for the Easter long weekend.

April is absolutely one of the best times of the year to visit Blue Derby due to the cooler temperatures & loam ribbons, all of which adds up to an epic time on the mountain bike riding world class trails.

The major airlines offer a direct flight from most cities into Launceston.

Big Mountain Derby has a range of electric, dual suspension, hardtail, & kids bikes available for hire.

And while you're here, you must book a shuttle with MAD MTB and ride the iconic Blue Tier wilderness trail.

Don't hesitate to contact us if we can be of service to you when booking your next epic MTB adventure this Easter.
