This is a fabulous trip for moderately fit people - age we found is no bar.
Victor and Ashley our guides were very encouraging, and we were lucky with beautiful weather. Cool at night and mostly fine days. The camp cooking was exceptional for wilderness cuisine. The wild flowers were stunning especially the prickly scaparia, of many hues. The buttongrass moorlands with mountains behid were vistas from heaven. This should be on all eco-friendly Australians' bucket list.
E-bikes now available!
We are excited to announce that from January 4th 2017, on all of our cycling trips in Tasmania you now have the option to rent an E-bike. This is a fantastic addition for those who love to cycle but want the flexibility to take it a little easier when you choose.
Why use an e-bike? Electric bikes give cyclists a helping hand when it comes to powering up hills or keeping up with the pack. Their small, hidden engines respond to and complement your pedalling speed and power, which means that if you pedal hard, less battery power will be used; but if you begin to slow down, the electrical system kicks in and provides a welcome boost!
Not sure if an ebike is for you? We’ve listed our top reasons why you might want to consider using one!
First-time cycle tour travellers
If you’re considering joining your very first cycling tour and are concerned with your ability to keep up with the group, rest assured that an e-bike will give you the additional power you need to make your trip more pleasurable. With the assistance of an electric bike, those longer distances are more achievable, easier, and difficult terrain more manageable, giving you the chance to better enjoy the sights along the route. Going uphill suddenly becomes a breeze!
If you’re planning a cycling trip with friends or family, where there’s an age gap that may impact your performance, an e-bike is an excellent solution for people of all ages to join in and maintain and enjoyable level of exertion.
You don’t need any ‘excuse’ to use an ebike! Even seasoned cyclists can enjoy the benefits of an ebike, whether it’s powering up hills or having that bit of assistance for those extra long days. The power boost is always welcome, and can turn a good bike trip into a great one with the stroke of a pedal.
