What to expect on our bike tours

Our cycling tours are designed for cyclists of all ages who enjoy moderate sporting activities combined with sightseeing. The daily distances are planned to allow for some short walks to places of interest in explore this magical island. You will see well-known tourist attractions as well as little-known places.
However, if you prefer a more energetic ride, we can arrange this also. We use sealed roads only apart from one very short section and prefer narrow and winding country roads with little traffic through spectacular scenery.
Because we are based in a remote location in the northeast coast we know the island inside out - not just from a city-office desk. All our crew members are cyclists by themselves and know how it is like to be on a bike. Over the years we have tested lots of hotels, finding many disappointing. We only book those accommodation for our guests were we would stay by ourselves.
We pride ourselves on attention to detail and our fair prices. Just enquire for an obligation-free quote!
On our Guided Group Tours almost everything is included, even all drinks during the day (no evening meals). The guide looks after your every need. You can use the support vehicle (see below) whenever you like.
Self Guided Tours are our speciality. We can customised the tour free of charge according to your individual requirements. In the place of a guide, you will be provided with a comprehensive and easy-to-follow, door to door and route-description.
We own a fleet of quality rental bicycles which are regularly serviced to a very high standard. We also operate our own support vehicle with a special quick loading custom-build trailer.


Please note, in our tour packages accommodation for the arrival day and the last night at the endpoint are included!
We have chosen a cross-section of accommodation styles that reflect what’s generally available in Tasmania. In general, we prefer small, privately owned places and not big sterile hotels.
Considering that guests have different comfort needs and available funds we offer the choice of up to 5 accommodation categories. Not all are available ion all tours. Apart from the accommodation the tours are identical.

Executive category: Usually the best possible accommodation available in the given area.
Comfort category: Our most booked option with "feel good" places, many of them 4-stars. Always with shower / toilet.
Economy category: For guests who are satisfied with simple accommodation, like basic 3-star motels. Usually with shower / toilet.
Budget categoryFor guests who insist on a room for themselfs but donīt mind to have it extremely basic. Quite often shared facilities.
Hostel category: For backpackers and those who don't mind sharing a room with others. Always shared facilities.

Rental bicycle

Our rental bike - gents model.For an extra charge you can hire one of our very well maintained hire bikes. We have 2 types: Our fully equipped and tour-tested hybrid bikes, and our new "runners", which can not carry luggage and are mainly used for supported tours. We supply a hemet free of charge (wearing a helmet is compulsory). Guests of our self-guided trips also receive a good pump, lock, a repair kit (including a spare tube) and instructions.
If you prefer, you are most welcome to bring your own bike, although our insurance requires it has been checked professionally prior to the tour.
NEW in 2015: Our bikes are now covered by RACT roadside assist. That means in the rare case of failure you may call the Tasmanian automobileclub for help if we are too far away.

Support vehicle

Our Minibus with our custom made trailer.On our Guided Group Tours we use our own support vehicle and custom build trailer. Its design enables very quick loading and unloading of any bike. Bus and trailer are usually close to the guests, meaning if you donīt want to cycle anymore you can take a break and continue cycling later.

Value for money

Compared to other operators we are less expensive. Be assured: there are no catches or shortcuts or compromises of service. We just donīt spend money on a fancy website or expensive colour brochures. Being a small company we also have less overhead costs. All the savings are passed on to our customers, resulting in fair prices and good value for money.

NOTE: If you are planning to do a bike tour by yourself in Tasmania, there are some things worth bearing in mind: Certain areas are much more hilly, in reality, than it appears on maps; you can travel quite some distance without ever coming across shops; suitable accommodation is not a certainty in all places. A more enjoyable and hassle-free option is to let us to arrange a self-guided tour for you, where you can travel independently but without the organisational difficulties. Better still, you could enjoy the fun and ease of a guided group tour. Either way, our trips have proven to be a very successful way to see the 'Holiday Isle'.
