They couldn't do the planned overseas tour, so next best thing is... the beautiful Gold Coast, from Coolangatta to much loved Byron Bay.

This private tour for a close-knit group of cycling friends brings all the fun of riding together, with the luxury of good food, accommodation and professional support. It may not be Sardinia, but the coastal views and lush hinterland are just as stunning.

FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE MON 31 MAY | WELCOME AND WARM-UP RIDE

Arrival into our excellent hotel in Coolangatta. We'll assist with setting up your bikes. This will be followed by an afternoon out and back along the Currumbin Valley to check the bikes and get you moving after travelling. Fantastic scenery with water the theme of the day, as we mimic the path of the Currumbin Creek, past the Currumbin Rock Pools all the way to Cougal Cascade.
DISTANCE | 65KM | 40MI
ELEVATION | 900M | 2950FT

DAY TWO TUE 1 JUN | TOMEWIN TWEED RIVER LOOP

A journey into the hinterland, with delightful quiet, tree-lined roads as we climb to around 350m. The thrill of a descent and lush green vistas, as we head back to the coast via the Tweed River.
DISTANCE | 68KM | 42MI
ELEVATION | 1100M | 3600FT
LONG OPTION | 80KM | 1200M

DAY THREE WED 2 JUN | SPRINGBROOK RIDE

Today we venture north to the Springbrook National Park. This is a longer ride, with one climb on our way to the bubbling Twin Falls. The scenery is spectacular! Great day in the saddle.
DISTANCE | 97KM | 60MI
ELEVATION | 1450M | 4750FT

DAY FOUR THU 3 JUN | MOUNT WARNING!

You have a choice today for another longer, but spectacular day to Mount Warning, or a shorter day with Mount Warning merely in the distance. With a rest day tomorrow, what do you reckon?!!
DISTANCE | 97KM | 60MI
ELEVATION | 1250M | 4100FT
SHORT OPTION | 60KM | 750M

DAY FIVE FRI 4 JUN | REST DAY

After a big day out yesterday, a free day to sleep in, relax and explore Coolangatta.

DAY SIX SAT 5 JUN | COOLANGATTA TO BYRON BAY

Along the coast we go, pedalling from Coolangatta to our new base in gorgeous Byron Bay. If you're full of beans after your rest day, take the high road.
DISTANCE | 80KM | 50MI
ELEVATION | 700M | 2300FT
LONG OPTION | 105KM | 1200M

DAY SEVEN SUN 6 JUN | BALLINA LOOP

Brilliant loop ride to Ballina and the biggest Prawn you've ever seen. Seriously! We come back up through green Tintenbar, past the Killen Falls and Emigrant Creek Dam.
DISTANCE | 75KM | 47MI
ELEVATION | 850M | 2800FT
LONG OPTION | 80KM | 900M

DAY EIGHT MON 7 JUN | FEDERAL LOOP

One of those great days on the bike, where a route winds and undulates through such scenic terrain that before you know it you've clocked up quite a few kays. We think you'll be enticed into more, but it's entirely up to you.
DISTANCE | 65KM | 40MI
ELEVATION | 1150M | 3800FT
LONG OPTION | 90KM | 1650M

DAY NINE TUE 8 JUN | TINTENBAR LOOP

Our final day! Our last day in the saddle takes us further south with a hilly ride to Tintenbar along wooded roads. The return trip is flatter as we hit the coastal plain, so a potential fast peloton into town for celebrations to wind up a fabulous tour.
DISTANCE | 68KM | 42MI
ELEVATION | 850M | 2800FT
LONG OPTION | 80KM | 1100M

DAY TEN WED 9 JUN | GOODBYE

Morning transfer back to Coolangatta Airport.
Time to say farewell, until next time!
