FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE SUN 31 OCT | WELCOME

Arrival into our excellent hotel in Hobart. We'll assist with setting up your bikes ready for tomorrow. This will be followed by a delicious, Welcome dinner and tour briefing. Some great riding coming up - how good is this?!!

DAY TWO MON 1 NOV | TINDERBOX LOOP

Your introductory ride is a beauty! Undulating terrain close to the River Derwent, to picturesque Tinderbox. This will have you warmed up for the climb from Sandfly to Ferntree through quiet, wooded roads. Then downhill all the way home.
DISTANCE | 75KM | 47MI
ELEVATION | 1450M | 4750FT

DAY THREE TUE 2 NOV | MOUNT WELLINGTON!

Really, an obligatory route for all cyclists to Hobart. Today we ascend Mount Wellington. It's a gorgeous ride, and we'll replenish your body with lunch at the Cascade Brewery, the oldest brewery in Australia. It's only a short ride, so the afternoon holds a ferry ride to and from the famed Mona Museum of Art.
DISTANCE | 45KM | 28MI
ELEVATION | 1200M | 3900FT

DAY FOUR WED 3 NOV | RICHMOND LOOP

A leisurely loop after two solid days, to Richmond and Pitt Water Nature Reserve. Two or three little spikes to keep you honest, so sit back and enjoy.
DISTANCE | 75KM | 47MI
ELEVATION | 800M | 2600FT

DAY FIVE THU 4 NOV | HOBART TO LAUNCESTON

Transfer and Rest Day. Today is a day off the bike as we transfer from Hobart to Launceston. We take the scenic route, heading to Freycinet National Park with a civilised stop-over in Coles Bay for lunch.

DAY SIX FRI 5 NOV | LAUNCESTON TAMAR RIVER RIDE

A treat! Undulating ride along the Tamar River. The views are so pleasant it's an out and back to Batman Bridge, not a round Robin(!), with lunch possibly at Velo Wines. The owner is Michael Wilson, ex Pro Rider who won a stage at the Giro and Vuelta.
DISTANCE | 75KM | 47MI
ELEVATION | 700M | 2300FT

DAY SEVEN SAT 6 NOV | WESTBURY LOOP

Delightful day in the saddle as we ride to Westbury, with the option of a wander through the Westbury Maze. If you make it back out, the scenic, undulating, high country road continues on with wide open vistas before descending back to Launceston.
DISTANCE | 90KM | 56MI
ELEVATION | 900M | 2950FT
SHORT OPTION | 85KM | 780M

DAY EIGHT SUN 7 NOV | WOOLMERS ESTATE LOOP

A return to the high country in a slightly more southerly direction for another great ride. We head through Longford and stop at the stunning Woolmers Estate for coffee. The day's wonders don't stop there, as lunch is planned at magnificent Josef Chromy Wines.
DISTANCE | 70KM | 43MI
ELEVATION | 600M | 2000FT

DAY NINE MON 8 NOV | PROVENCE, OOPS! - BRIDESTOW LOOP

Were it Spring time you could be forgiven for thinking we'd whisked you off to France. Today is a hilly ride up through Lilydale, and onto the fields of Bridestow Lavendar Estate. From there only 25KM to go, to your well deserved lunch at the phenomenal Jansz Winery. We'll spoil you with a van transfer back to the hotel, so 'bon apetit'!
DISTANCE | 75KM | 47MI
