    A fun, active outdoor holiday that builds resilience in the kids and slows the whole family down. We all really enjoyed the time on the bikes and the adventure of discovering new places. Accommodation is basic but all hosts very hospitable. Angela & Rob couldn’t have been more helpful to us. Nothing was too much trouble including bike swap, puncture repair etc. This is the second Australian cycling holidays trip we’ve done and we would highly recommend them! Thank you

    We did this ride in mid December. It was a wonderful holiday. The organisation of it was exceptional, Angela and her husband think of everything so we were able to just relax and go. The accommodation was great, a different type of place each night, all of them comfortable and interesting. The scenery is varied and beautiful, the trails are all in great condition; the bikes, equipment, maps and directions
    were all spot on. We really loved this holiday and would highly recommend it, and the company.
