About Rock and Roll Mountain Biking

After years of mountain biking throughout Western Australia, we dreamed of being able to share these unique experiences with other people. It was with this vision that Rock ‘n’ Roll Mountain Biking Tours was created. The major aim of the company is to provide flexible customized tours, rides and clinics for all different levels of riders. We offer a huge range of services from day tours to weekenders, bike maintenance workshops all the way to race coaching. We promise to achieve all of this with not only our passion for mountain biking but our unsurpassed knowledge of all the best trails in Western Australia and our ability to tailor a ride to suit all levels of experience.

 

What you ride is up to you!
