Following our #MyBigRideByron feature in February, we’ve invited the team at Cyclist Australia back this August 22 – 25 for another taste of riding at Australia’s most eastern cape, and we want you to come along for the ride. Together we’ve created an exclusive 4 day, 3 night itinerary to share with you the best rides, restaurants and relaxing experiences of Byron Bay.
This trip is perfect for perfect for travellers who want to visit Byron and enjoy a relaxed, social and active escape.
The Lennox Ride
A scenic loop of the Byron hinterland, taking us along meandering quiet hinterland roads through a sub-tropical rainforest setting. After a few gentle climbs & countless panoramic photo opportunities, we’ll jump on the coast bike path to Lennox Head, where a waterfront ‘hatted’ lunch at Shelter is waiting for us.
The Brunswick Hotel Ride:
Click explore some of the Northern Rivers classic villages, including Federal, Mullumbimby & Brunswick Heads. Having worked up a healthy appetite, we’ll finish our ride with lunch overlooking the river at arguably Australia’s best pub, the Brunswick Heads Hotel.
One of our favourite rides, visiting the historic village of Newrybar.
