Shuttles

Vertigo’s Blue Tier + Atlas Day ex Derby

The Blue Tier is a stunning ~18km mountain bike adventure trail flowing down through sub alpine plains, Myrtle Beech forests, idyllic mossy rivulets, groves of giant tree ferns, ending with the epic Big Chook descent. After a relaxed lunch at the historic Weldborough Pub the ride continues! Atlas, a white-knuckle ~10km roller coaster ride, leads into Dambusters, one of the fastest and most thrilling descents found in Blue Derby. From Dambusters riders make their way down through the Blue Derby MTB park arriving back into Derby mid afternoon.

Our scenic 40 minute uplift shuttle takes you high above Derby for the start of a unique all-mountain adventure. Initially undulating the trail then descends spectacularly through gondwana-like rainforest featuring endless berms and rollers in beautiful loamy soils. The exhilarating descending continues after the trail converges with Dam Busters, where riders are met with a choice of three trail options; (1) Black Dragon offering amazing black diamond technical slab, or (2) Dam Busters descent to Devil Wolf which was Stage 1 of the EWS 2017, or (3) link to Krushkas near Big Mumma then choose from the Krushkas descent or ride the Trouty trail, famous for it’s granite slab and gnar.
