"If you are thinking about joining a (ride) with AllTrails - STOP and JUST DO IT! I had a great time and met some inspirational people all in a safe and encouraging environment. Thank you AllTrails - I'll be back!" Liz (WA)
AllTrails Bicycle Tours is the most established and respected Bicycle Tour company in Australia. Owners Phil & Susan McDonald have been organising fully supported, long distance bike tours to a loyal ride community, pushing the boundaries and leading the industry since last century, 1997. 75% of places on each tour are usually filled by previous clients – a wonderful testament to the satisfaction levels of AllTrails riders.
One of the best and most accessible tours that AllTrails run is the famous Great Ocean Rode Luxury Bike Tour - it is always a favourite. If you haven't been cycle touring before, or have never experienced a ride with AllTrails, then get on board today as it departs on Oct 17th.
AllTrails will guide you along the internationally renowned Great Ocean Road for 3 days, winding past The Twelve Apostles (or is it eight now?) and around popular beach resort towns that are the home of the surfing revolution. The pounding surf against limestone cliffs is the perfect backdrop for some power pedalling, climbing hills and descending through thick forest from Warrnambool to Port Campbell, to Apollo Bay to Queenscliff.
After the last overnight stop at Queenscliff you will take the ferry across the bay to Sorrento to join the 15,000 plus cyclists in one of Australia's premier cycling events 'Around the Bay in a Day'. The final 100km leg will see you ride proudly in through the finish arch at Alexandra Gardens to the festival atmosphere at the finish line that this famous ride generates.

"Here I am thinking about an absolutely fantastic, brilliantly organized & supported four day tour. I know I said thanks to Sue, Phil, Ben & the rest of the crew a number of times, but I just cannot express the personal satisfaction, the joy, and the sheer - pleasure in being able to do that ride. All of it made possible by two things, the marvelous support, planning, care & good old fashion “Aussie’ attitude of the ALLTRAILS CREW. The other reason being the easily made friendship, comradeship of the entire cycle group. I have never before met such a marvelous group of people. The time spent on the bike, in our lunch breaks & in the evenings was always made just so enjoyable by the individual characters on the ride. Again thanks to all for my memories that will last a life time & also just in case I do have a “Seniors” moment the many fantastic photographs supplied by Alltrails at the end." John A (NSW)
