Blue Derby Pods Ride
(PLA) has been working Blue Derby Pods Ride
with Tara and Steve from Echelon Marketing
for the past 12 months. This project will be the first eco mountain biking experience in Tasmania. The accommodation pods are situated in the old tin mining town of Derby. Derby is currently experiencing a boom in mountain bike tourism as the trail network continues to be built upon. PLA staff are passionate adventure seeking participants who enjoy mountain biking, hiking and anything outdoors in Tasmania's backyard. Additional consideration has been taken to assure the pristine environment will not be affected, both during construction and during the daily operation. The project brief was to design a central hub building and five boutique accommodation pods which float within the tree canopy.
