Tour Details

Do the cold & wet days of winter get to you? Do you miss riding your bike in the warm sunshine? Would you love to go to Europe but simply don’t have the time? We’ve got something to fix all that!

Join us in Cairns and experience riding in one of the most beautiful locations in Australia. The weather in June is just perfect with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s and mostly dry sunny days.

Why travel all the way over to Europe when you can explore your own backyard and enjoy some truly spectacular cycling. This is a cycling experience designed for cyclists by cyclists. We will ride 80k – 170k each day and take in some of the most stunning roads in Far North Queensland.

We will be staying at a beautiful hotel in Cairns, in a great location, close to all the restaurants, bars and shops in the centre of Cairns. There is plenty to do and see in Cairns but the highlight of the tour is a day out on the Great Barrier Reef! 

This tour is limited to a maximum of 12 people so don’t miss out and secure your spot today!
