Drop in to one of the world's premier spots to begin a fast-paced extreme bike ride that will challenge all riders. Following a scenic flight over The Remarkables, ride along the ridge line to admire the views, and then hit the downhill trails and accelerate through bends back to the valley.

Get fitted out with safety gear, climb into the helicopter, and ascend to near the peak of Ben Cruachan. At heights of just below 6,500 feet (2,000 m) the views from here are awe-inspiring. Begin the ride by heading out along the 3.7-mile (6-km) ridge line to appreciate the panoramas before the fun really starts.

Once you point the bike downhill, tear off along the trails, feeling the rough terrain beneath your wheels with the top-class suspension absorbing the bulk of the bumps and lumps. With challenging turns and a twisting single-track, you need to keep your wits about you as you push the bike to the limit and test your mettle as an extreme sports rider.

As you run out into the valley, hop aboard a 4x4 for a fast-paced ride home through vineyards and farmland, just to put any nerves you have left to the final test. Reflect on your achievements as you conquer a course that has appeared in many professional mountain bike movies.
