AUSTRALIA’S TOP 50 BIKE RIDES

The RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride - fabulous organisation, great routes and rather a lot of company.

The RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride – fabulous organisation, great routes and rather a lot of company. I’ve done this one twice, but there’s a new route every year.

Damn you, RIDE ON magazine, for publishing this list of Australia’s Top 50 Bike Riding Experiences. Now I want to do them all.

I’m able to say I can tick off a few of your selections, but still have about 45 to go. There are some MTB routes which are out of my comfort zone, but also many road rides that look fantastic.

Meanwhile I’m chained to my desk for a few more weeks, with only the occasional morning ride in Sydney to keep me sane.

Have a look at the list, and if anyone has other great Aussie routes to recommend – let me know, while I still have some knee cartilage left.

    If you wanna get some road distances in mate, I’m planning to cycle Adelaide to Cairns in 2016 (a while yet I know!). I’m planning and saving for it myself, you’re more than welcome to join for part of it, or all of it if you fancy?? :-)

    • Sounds like a great project, Gary, especially if I have until 2016 to practise! Keep in touch about it and if my knees are still working then, I’ll seriously consider giving it a crack.

        Fantastic Richard, it should be great. I’m writing about the planning process on my blog so keep checking back when you have five minutes. Would you be able to help me spread the word? :-)
