Coffs Harbour and its surrounding areas offer some of great trail riding opportunities. A way to explore this area is on a Yamaha sponsored Detour trail ride with tour leader Boris Everson.

Dorrigo bred Boris uses a local information to tailor a trail riding experience to suit each group. For example, heavy rainfalls in October and November of 2010 were no deterrent to the fun, because Boris was able to use his knowledge of the area to bypass the wettest trails and keep everyone entertained and enthused.

"We pride ourselves on the large number of repeat customers and are constantly impressed with how far they travel to come on our tours. It's not unusual to see riders from Victoria, Tasmania, Perth and we even had a rider fly in from Florida for one of our tours," says Boris.

"A lot of the journalists have now tasted the Coffs Harbour Detour experience and we are pleased that they are rating us highly as a 'must-do' on the organised ride calendar," continues Boris who offers two to five day rides. His Seven Hills Ride that is run every September has quickly become an iconic Coffs Harbour Detour run.

CHD recently launched its own website at which is loaded with info, pics and videos. The site also contains key dates and magazine articles on Coffs tours, Media release Coffs Harbour Detour info 16-02-2011 and there is a section where riders can look at their own pics and videos after their tour.
