It’s the bike ride that you have always wanted to do, and that you will remember forever. This is cycling the Great Ocean Road without the logistics headaches – everything is organized for you that you will need for the duration of the tour including accommodation, food, vehicle support, safety briefings and a first-aid qualified guide, bike mechanical support, luggage transfer, great camaraderie and much more. You can pedal away each morning knowing that your morning tea and lunch stops will be set up for you along the route, your luggage will be taken care of, and you are being looked after by the best in the business. All you need to do is decide which way to look to enjoy the scenery of this magnificent part of the world!
Imagine waking up in the early daylight and looking around a comfortable room, trying to remember where you are. You hear the waves crashing on the beach not too far away and look up to see your bike at the end of the bed ready and waiting for you to rise. Then it hits you – you are on the Great Ocean Road Slow Cycle Tour and you can’t wait to get up and start another day cycling through some of the most beautiful parts of Victoria.
The safety and support vehicles on this tour are vitally important for a smooth ride and they are never too far away. The food breaks, morning tea, lunch and afternoon snacks are set times enabling all riders to plan their day and the amount of time required to enjoy the sights and attractions along the way. Lunch is a great time to relax, refuel your body and chat to your friends, be it in a famous bakery, a country pub or down by the sea. Cyclists move off knowing the distance and terrain ahead and aiming to arrive at the overnight stop around early-mid afternoon.
Your accommodation is excellent – you check in then have a cuppa and snack and shower or soak in the bath. Explore the surroundings, go for a walk, share a cool drink with friends or simply relax. It is your life, it’s your ride, enjoy it. A briefing for all cyclists at 6pm before the evening meal is always interesting, finding out what happened that day, and a rundown on the sights, special attractions and areas of caution to look out for the next day. Lots of laughs and stories are shared before you settle down to a good healthy meal and a few drinks. Bedtime is not far away, where you put your head down in salubrious surroundings, remembering the day and dreaming of tomorrow.
