A glorious break in Perth, Western Australia, cycling around the sparkling Swan River, beside the turquoise Indian Ocean and eucalyptus scented bushland.

Being the most isolated capital in the world, has inspired many West Australians to punch well above their weight. World class sports people, artists, musicians, scientists and cyclists, of course! The locals are relaxed and as laid back as only Aussies can be, to make you feel welcome and at ease.
The terrain around Perth is relatively flat, with fantastic views usually under blue, blue skies. There are good hill rides to the east, and often a breeze to provide an extra challenge, or a great push!

For riders who would like a longer ride, there are plenty of options we can offer.

Post ride, expect exceptional produce in creative, delicious dishes that reflect the myriad cultures that have made Perth home. We'll include at least one organised activity which, depending on the time of year, could be a cruise on the Swan River, a visit to Rottnest Island and the endearing quokkas, Swan valley wine tasting, wild flowers and tree walk in Kings Park.

If you'd like to stay a little longer, add our Margaret River Tour to your holiday. Contact us if you'd like a special price for this add-on.

Hire bikes in Perth will be brand new Cervelo C3 carbon bikes with medium compact gearing, Shimano Di2 and disc brakes.

FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE FRI 11 SEP | WELCOME!

Welcome to Perth! We suggest you arrive by late morning. There will be a group airport transfer at 11:00am and we'll get you settled into your lovely hotel in the heart of Perth. There will a light welcome lunch and Tour Briefing. In the afternoon a leisurely ride along the river and through scenic Kings Park to get the legs turning after travelling.

DISTANCE | 45KM | 28MI
ELEVATION | 150M | 500FT

DAY TWO SAT 12 SEP | LOOP OF SWAN RIVER

A great ride that will take you through the western suburbs of Perth on the way to the beach. We'll ride along the coast all the way to the historic port city of Fremantle, and a quick espresso. The route will loop back taking the the southern reaches of the Swan River with glorious views back towards the city, and no doubt into Kings Park for some more scenic shots.
DISTANCE | 65KM | 40MI
ELEVATION | 300M | 1000FT

DAY THREE SUN 13 SEP | LOOP TO THE 'BUSH'

When Aussies refer to country inland, they refer to the 'bush'. This is pretty much anything that is not on the coast! Today we head into the bush, through the picturesque hills east of Perth. These are precious water catchment areas tucked amidst gum trees, alive with the unique songs of Australian magpies, kookaburras and crows. If you're lucky you may spot a kangaroo, although their active hours are usually at dawn and dusk. A great day in the saddle!

ELEVATION | 600M | 2000FT

DAY FOUR MON 14 SEP | KINGS PARK LOOP

For those of you with flights departing late Monday afternoon, there will be time for a last ride. A beautiful route along the river to the University of Western Australia, past the huge houses of the lucky residents of Dalkeith and back into Kings Park for a loop, or two. A group transfer to Perth airport in the afternoon.
Time to say farewell, until next time!
