MTB Guides for hire – Black Diamond

From: $125.00

Do you have a private group and want to be challenged? If you have your own MTBs and want a guide to take you into our forests, this is the package for you.

Our experienced guides will take you to Ashley’s Tower in the Werakata State Conservation Area, starting and finishing at Cessnock Racecourse.

There’s fire trails, sandy whoops, lots of single track and some tough climbing, but you’ll be rewarded with a hero view over Cessnock and the Wine Country. You’ll take some photos and then descend our legendary downhill trail ‘The Tempest’ and follow some whooped-out railway corridors before some fast snotty single track at the end.

Our standard Black Diamond tour covers 18 kms of cycling with 400m of climb and takes 2 hours, but this can be extended up to 4 hours to suit your requirements.

For the ultra-keen riders we can add an A-grade rider as your tour leader – contact us for pricing and try to keep up!



Hire price is per hour for two guides – a leader and a sweep. The Leader will keep the group together and will ride to the speed of the slowest rider.

The sweep carries tools but you’ll need to bring your own spares; we recommend a minimum of tube, chainlink and Co2.

This is a no-drop ride, so we’ll bring the whole group home. We can fix most problems on the trail, but if we can’t fix it we’ll take you to the nearest main road.
