Blue Derby Pods

13 Dec, 2018

Blue Derby Pods Ride is a three-day mountain biking experience based from unique and exclusive off-the-grid accommodation Pods in Derby, North East Tasmania.

Over three days, an intimate group of eight guests leave their cars, agendas and the daily grind behind, to traverse the rainforests and ridgelines of the world-acclaimed Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails.

Guests are immediately immersed in the landscape, as they only ever arrive or depart the site by mountain bike. This personal challenge is balanced by indulging in exquisite Tasmanian food and wine, and relaxing in unique, architectural accommodation pods and central hub area in the heart of the forested trail network.

Mode caught up with Tara & Steve, creators of this vision, just recently. We were thrilled by what they had to say:

“Mode Electrical made our potentially challenging off-grid electric solution a breeze to solve.

“From the first view of our concept and plans, Marty was enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, and best of all had a can-do attitude for any requests we made.

“We had fun coming up with a practical custom solution for our energy requirements, which was then executed on time and to budget, which made the Mode team a joy to work with.”

They further added, “We’ve just passed 18 months of operation, and the system has been flawless. We have great trust in the components used and the workmanship of the install.

“It’s so nice to be able to focus on providing a high-end tourism experience for our guests, in the knowledge that we’ve got a strong and reliable energy system working away in the background to support our endeavours.

“We’d unreservedly recommend Mode Electrical to any individual or business looking for an off-grid energy solution for their home or business”.

With a plug like that, dare we confess that we went in hard for this job just because it was so much fun & we love riding? This place is da bomb.  🙂
