Day to Day

A Typical Day on the Ride:

Up at 7am for a hearty cyclist breakfast before hitting the road on the first section of your day’s ride. The AllTrails team will set up morning tea for you 25-35km up the road where you will regroup and chat with your fellow cyclists about the things that you have seen and the exciting scenery and highlights ahead.

The food breaks are at set times enabling all riders to plan their day and the amount of time required to enjoy the sights and attractions along the way. Lunch will be set up for you another 30-40km up the road and is a great time to relax, refuel your body and chat to your friends, be it in a famous bakery, a country pub, next to a sparkling mountain stream or down by the sea. Cyclists move off knowing the distance and terrain ahead and aiming to arrive at the overnight stop around mid-afternoon.

And the cycling is just the beginning; once you’re off your bike there is always a village to explore, a pool to relax beside, a café to critique, a beach to walk or a new friend to get to know. Your accommodation is excellent – a relaxed room where you can enjoy a cuppa and snack and shower or soak in the bath. It’s your ride, enjoy it.

A briefing for all cyclists at 6pm before the evening meal is always interesting, finding out what happened that day, and a run-down on the sights and special attractions to look out for the next day. Lots of laughs and stories are shared before we settle down to a good healthy meal and a few drinks. Bedtime is not far away, where you put your head down remembering the day and dreaming of tomorrow.

Meal and accom inclusions noted as B, L, D, A (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Accommodation)

Melbourne (bus to Foster) PRE TOUR -- NA -- Wed 3 Oct 2018 -- - - D A

PRE TOUR: Today we will meet up at Southern Cross Station around midday and head to Gippsland on an afternoon bus (approx 1pm). Once in Gippsland we will settle in to our accommodation and have registration, a safety briefing and bike set-up. There should be a bit of time to explore the town and surrounds before dinner – why not jump on the bike and take a look – it’s a lovely part of the world. Our group dinner tonight will be a great opportunity to meet the crew, chat to some old and new friends and get excited about the days ahead.

Foster to Inverloch -- 81km -- Thu 4 Oct 2018 -- B L D A
After breakfast this morning we are off! From Foster we head south then west, with a 4km climb up to O’Gradys Ridge Rd which leads into a 7km downhill run into Fish Creek and on through to the holiday-home hamlet of Walkerville and Cape Liptrap Coastal Park which sits on the shores of Waratah Bay. Our roadside morning tea stop is a beauty, with sweeping views over the Bay, the Park and the peninsula.

After morning tea the route swings north-west as we head through Tarwin Lower and skirt around the top of Venus Bay into Inverloch which sits on the coast at the mouth of Anderson Inlet, a protected bay where the Tarwin River enters Bass Strait. The shallow estuary creates a stunning turquoise colour while the beach boasts a large expanse of soft sand and is backed by low grassy dunes. Our accom tonight is a real treat at the RACV Resort, 5km out of the town itself. Beautiful rooms, indoor pool, gym, spa, sauna, tennis courts, walking trails in the resort bushlands – it’s got it all.

Inverloch to Phillip Island -- 88km -- Fri 5 Oct 2018 -- B L - A
Today is packed full of highlights so where do we start? How about breakfast? RACV Resort breakfast is fresh, beautiful and bountiful. Enjoy. Then on the bike we begin the ride with The Bunurong Coastal Drive which presents some of Victoria’s most spectacular coastal scenery has been described as a mini Great Ocean Road. Running for 14kms from Inverloch to Cape Paterson this scenic cliff top ride gives views over rugged coastal cliffs, rocky headlands, and sandy beaches to Bass Strait on the one side and the rolling rural hills of the Bass Coast on the other. Although not as well-known as the Great Ocean Road, it is a genuine highlight. From here we head inland through Wonthaggi bound for another spectacular cycling road, this one somewhat of a hidden gem. The Glen Alvie Tourist Road doesn’t get much coverage but you’ll wonder why as you ride along the ridge-line rounding each corner that reveals a new scenic view across rolling green hills. Here we will stop for morning tea before rolling back down to the coast and lunch at Kilcunda, overlooking the wild Bass Straight, before the last leg of the day past San Remo into the township of Cowes on Phillip Island.

Phillip Island has a plethora of attractions and activities to discover from iconic wildlife, pristine white beaches, children’s farms, chocolate factories, great restaurants and much more, however there is one attraction that stands above all else which is the famous Phillip Island Penguins and tonight we will include the dusk ‘penguin parade’ as part of our tour. Make sure you pack some warm clothes and a beanie as it will get cold out there on the beach in the evening – but it’s worth it to experience this special event.

Phillip Island to Rye -- 97km -- Sat 6 Oct 2018 -- B L D A
This morning cyclists have time for a relaxing breakfast before catching the ferry over to Stony Point on the Mornington Peninsula where the AllTrails support vehicles will be waiting. From here you cycle through beautiful coastal towns and past stunning properties and landscapes. The road undulates with a few hills which are short but testing as you come into the small town of Flinders for morning tea before heading along the south coast and down to the Cape Schanck Lighthouse for a snack and a few photos. We take the back roads on the south side of the peninsula via Sorrento Back Beach to Point Nepean National Park where we lunch at the Point Nepean Quarantine Station near the Info Centre and from there it’s a 2km ride and 800m walk to Fort Nepean on the very end of the Peninsula.

In this precinct there are almost 50 heritage listed buildings, forts, observatory points, and great walking & cycling tracks. If you have time, take the short detour to Cheviot Hill, the park’s highest point. It overlooks Cheviot Beach, the site where former Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt disappeared without a trace in December 1967. A memorial is located about 500m further along Defence Road from Cheviot Hill. After checking it all out, saddle up for the final 15km ride up the coast to our accommodation in Rye.

If time permits this afternoon, why not consider a visit to the impressive Peninsula Hot Springs which is just 6km from our overnight accommodation? A lovely way to finish off your day. Back in Rye you will have time to shower, change and freshen up before our final dinner together – a fun celebratory occasion with lots of laughs, some fresh, local Asian food and a few drinks.

Rye to Melbourne -- 92km -- Sun 7 Oct 2018 -- B L

Today is the day where our small riding group becomes thousands as we join the hugely popular ‘Around the Bay’ bike ride event. Over 25 years Around the Bay has cemented its place in bike riding culture as Australia’s biggest one-day bike ride. All of our cyclists will be entered into the Sorrento to Melbourne 100km ride option. You are welcome to make your way to the start-line in Sorrento (8km each way) or just start your ride at Rye (making a 92km distance). Beach Road becomes a cycle path for thousands of eager riders from all walks of life during this annual event that finishes in Alexandra Gardens in Melbourne City. There is a truly festive atmosphere at the end of the ride as you pass through the finish arch. Congratulations – what a ride!

We are happy to answer any other questions you may have

Feel free to contact us at any time through our website ‘Contact Us’ page, phone or email. We love what we do and want to get you on the best bike ride for you. Speak to us about what’s on your mind and we’ll help you make your decision.

Support bus availability

Our support bus is there to support the tour and also pick up riders who need to jump in for any reason. This vehicle can be quite popular on some days – especially long days or days with big hills! There is no shame in riding in this bus so if you are considering a tour but are not 100% sure if you will be up to it on the toughest day(s), just go for it – our vehicle and staff will be there to help out. It’s better to give it a try than to miss out all together. The bus is also sometimes used for part-time riders who only ride certain sections of each day – these are often partners of someone else on the ride.

Insurance – IMPORTANT

Obtaining appropriate insurance is your (very important) responsibility

IMPORTANT (even if you live in Australia): Travel Insurance for lost deposits and cancellations:
http://www.chubbtravelinsurance.com.au/
Domestic travel insurance usually costs $50-$60 for one week. You can access Chubb Travel Insurance through the above link.

  • They offer an ‘Adventure Sports Pack’ add-on which covers ‘expedition bicycle touring’.
  • They offer three levels of cover where a cyclist can match their ‘Cancellation’ $ limit (seen under ‘Key Benefits’) with the value of their AllTrails tour plus any other flights, hotels etc.

You can also speak to your local travel agent or airline to obtain Travel Insurance. We cannot emphasise enough how important this is. Every year, many clients cancel their tour with us due to unforeseen circumstances – injury, health, or other. Those with no travel insurance can end up with a major financial loss as a result of cancellation fees (make sure this is not you). Those with travel insurance can often claim the expenses back (make sure this is you). As a small business we need to adhere to our cancellation policies. No matter where you obtain your travel insurance from – just make sure that you have it.

IMPORTANT: Cyclist insurance for accidents & medical:
https://www.bicyclenetwork.com.au/membership/
https://bq.org.au/join-us/member-benefits/
This is also very strongly recommended. Cycling can be a dangerous activity and you must be prepared for the worst. You may have an accident in training for the ride, on the ride itself, or cycling down to the corner store. If you are a cyclist coming on our tour you should be 100% prepared for the unexpected. Cyclist insurance can be bought separately, or it comes with cycling memberships such as Bicycle Network or Bicycle Queensland. If you are involved in a crash or collision they can support you with personal injury costs, loss of income, third party liability insurance, assistance in completing your claim paper work & free legal consultation.

Bike mechanical assistance provided

A staff member with good bike mechanical knowledge will be part of our crew and will have a stand pump for different valves. The mechanic will often be able to help you with a safety check, general tips and advice about your bike and its upkeep, as well as fixing mechanical problems. We will have limited parts available for replacement which will be charged at shop prices. Labour is free for the first fifteen minutes, there after costs may be incurred at the mechanic’s discretion.  Cyclists with rare or different bikes are asked to contact us at AllTrails as parts can often be very difficult to obtain.

Sharing rooms – how does it work?

On the online entry form you can nominate any travelling companions that you would like to share a room with and/or be accommodated close to so that couples or friends can be grouped together. This can be in a double bed or in twin beds. If you are travelling alone like many of our riders, Single Supplement is available for those who would like their own room for the whole trip. On some tours you can also choose to ‘twin share’ where single riders are paired with other riders of the same gender and changed at each accommodation to create interest in sharing rooms. On other tours you may need to put your name down on a Twin Share Request List and we will try to match you up. If you are a snorer or have other habits that may affect your fellow room-mates we suggest booking your own room. If you are coming on your own and have booked in as twin share, this usually means that you will share a room with one other single twin share traveller, however in some cases we may have larger rooms (eg. two bedroom apartment or a B&B/house with multiple bathrooms) where we may have 3 or 4 single twin share travellers together.

Travelling alone?

Not a problem! You’ll find other like-minded cycling companions taking part in our rides. If you’re a solo traveller we can pair you with other solo travellers of the same gender in twin share accom (early bookers only) or you can opt for Single Supplement (additional cost) to receive a room of your own.

Snorers can enjoy their own room

If you are a chronic snorer or have other habits that may affect your fellow room-mates we suggest booking your own room (single supplement cost). This is not just a courtesy to your fellow travelling companions, but will also give you the space & privacy you need to enjoy your sleep after a long day on the bike.

Accommodation on our rides

We always try to obtain great accommodation in the best location for you to rest your weary head (and legs) in each town whether it be a motel, hotel, cabins or similar, usually 3, 3½, 4 star. We choose the best and most welcoming motel for cyclists and our tour group needs. On occasion we travel through some very small towns where accommodation is extremely limited. If for whatever reason, such as limited options, the accommodation one night is below normal standard, we strive to improve this with an extra good room the next night or nights following.

Carrying personal items on the bike

We suggest you carry a spare tube, a full water bottle and your own personal goods such as camera, wallet and rain gear if it’s threatening, on your bike with you. We transport your luggage, day packs, food & extra water. A detailed list of what is required and provided will be sent to you in your pre-tour info pack.

Meals and food

Always a big part of any cycling holiday! Check tour details for meal inclusions on your ride. Our emphasis is on fresh food and balanced diet with plenty of carbohydrates, proteins, fruit and vegies catering for a cycling holiday. We successfully cater to most dietary requirements, however feel free to contact us with any questions. Most meals are included as part of our tours, however you may be required to purchase some meals. See the ‘Day to Day’ tab for more details, or click the ‘Download Itinerary’ button.

Non-riding partners and part-time cyclists

We realise that often our riders want to spend their holidays with loved ones who may not be as keen on the bike as they are themselves – we are happy to accommodate those non-riding partners and part-time riders who want to only ride part of each day, or only certain days. We will generally try to allocate pickup points along the route every day. The entry price will be the same for non-riders and part-time riders.

Safety

We have a great safety record, but accidents can happen. We have comprehensive First-Aid Kits with trained 1st aiders as tour guides and drivers, mobiles and a satellite phone for emergency calls and the locality of hospitals in the areas that we travel through. We also have vehicles that can take anyone injured or sick for further treatment. You can also help by immediately stopping or slowing on-coming traffic if a fellow cyclist does have a fall. Safety discussions are held throughout the tour as part of the daily briefings.

Speak to a past client

We will be happy to give you the names and telephone numbers of people who have participated in the ride or a similar ride to the one which you are considering. Where possible we will provide you with the details of someone within your city or state.
Another good place to look is our ‘Testimonials’ page.

Group info session

Contact us if you would like to find out about booking an info session for your group of friends, or if you would like to find out about a travel talk happening near you in the future. Be inspired, hear from the experts, learn more about a destination and even book your tour on the night.

Weather

Our tours have been specifically scheduled to take into consideration the best time of year to travel to that destination. This takes into account the temperate range, possible rainfall and the prevailing winds. Of course, we can’t ever control the weather however this only adds to the adventure and excitement of your travel experience!
For more specific weather and climate information visit www.bom.gov.au or for our international tours visit www.worldweather.org

Changing or cancelling a tour

We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance for all our Australian rides at the time of deposit and ensure that it includes coverage for cancellation fees if for some reason you are not able to travel. For our international tours we require all participants to have Travel Insurance to assist you in the event of a medical emergency, lost baggage, personal liability, cancelled tour or any other trip related issues.
Should you wish to change your booking with AllTrails to a different tour, there will be a very reasonable service charge. We try to keep this figure as low as possible to allow flexibility where we can as we want to make sure that you get on the right tour for you. For cancellation and refund policies for your tour click the ‘T&Cs’ tab on the relevant tour page of our website.

What sorts of people join our rides?

People from all parts of Australia and overseas.  Ages generally range from 30 – 70 with the average age about 50 years old. Adventurous cyclists usually about 40% women & 60% men with a mix of singles, friends and couples.

Packing tips

We recommend you bring a soft bag or backpack. We advise against bringing a suitcase as they are bulky, difficult to stow on board vehicles or trailers and heavy. You may be required to lift or carry your own luggage from time to time, e.g. into accommodation. We expect your bag to be no heavier than 15kg, making it easy to manage for you and the staff. Any excess luggage may need to be stored or forwarded on to your final destination at your own expense. Information about what to pack is included as part of your Pre-Departure information. Generally we advise that you pack as light as possible.

Bike type – which is best?

A comfortable racing bike, road bike or touring bike with a good seat and road tyres with slick or near-slick tread. A hybrid or mountain bike is also possible if you are comfortable riding the daily distances and average speed of the tour, however these bikes can be around 20% slower than a road bike. Ask us for the ‘Training Tips’ document for this ride to get an idea of distances and speeds you need to train for.

Training for AllTrails tours

You really need to be a reasonably keen cyclist – not necessarily fast, but consistent.  Try to sit on an average speed of at least 20-25 km/hr on the flat, and build your kilometre total distance in training to be out on the bike for a number of hours for two days straight. Aim to ride close to the average daily distance of your chosen tour on each of the days if you can. This will usually put you in a good position to be ready for your tour. We have a training schedule specific to each ride which we send to you after you place your deposit, however we are more than happy to send this to you earlier when you are considering the tour – just ask us for a copy and we will get it out to you straight away.

Bike Hire

We do not have a fleet of our own hire bikes however we can usually help you out with organising bike hire through our local contacts near our office in Melbourne, or closer to a ride departure location. When you make your booking just let us know that you would also like to hire a bike and we will get the ball rolling for you and put you in touch with the right people where possible. You can also bring your own seat and/or pedals to give you that little bit of ‘home comfort’.

Buying a new bike – what to consider

If you are purchasing a new bike for this ride or wanting to make some upgrades here a few points to consider:

Bike set up: Unless you are accustomed to riding long distances or are very flexible set your bike up for comfort rather than optimum aerodynamics. A more comfortable upright position is most easily achieved by raising the handle bar and moving the seat forward.

Wheels: Do not go too light. High-end road bikes often allow you to choose different wheel sets or if you are considering upgrading, the lightest wheels might be the fastest, but they are not always the strongest. The heavier you are the more important this is. Cheaper wheels are heavier and generally have more spokes, but are also quite robust and easy to repair, so if this is your price bracket then there is not too much to worry about. If you looking at getting some fast wheels and you are over 90kg ask your bike shop for advice and even do some research online or within your bike community.

Tyres: Durability is the most important feature for long distance rides. When choosing your tyres look for features like anti-puncture and Kevlar lining. A harder rubber also allows you to get more kilometres out of each tyre. A popular choice amongst our cyclists are the Continental Ultra Gatorskins in either the 23mm or 25mm width.

Gearing: As a rule; the more gears you have the easier it is to climb hills. The standard configuration of gears found on road bikes does not suit everyone. If you find yourself running out of gears while climbing, needing to get out of the saddle to get over a hill or ride with a high cadence it might be worth considering one or both of these options. Replace the cassette with a larger one (more teeth)and/or get a compact crank. A compact crack tries to do what the triple chain ring crank does in just two chain rings. If you already have a triple, this is not for you. The compact crank slightly reduces your big chain ring size and significantly reduces your small chain ring size making it much easier to climb hills and spin your legs faster rather than harder.

Airport transport to Southern Cross Station

The Skybus goes from Melbourne (Tullamarine) Airport and goes to Southern Cross Station. You can take your bike on the Skybus and it also has free shuttles to CBD hotels.  More info at www.skybus.com.au.

Why book with us?

We only run approximately 10 tours per year. This makes every tour as special to us as it is to you because we are not repeating the same rides over and over again week-in week-out. Every tour is meticulously planned and we are just as excited to be there as you – there is no bulk production-line here! On most occasions the owner-operators of the business will be on tour with you looking after everyone on the ride.  The safety and confidence that comes with that is one of many great reasons to book your cycling holiday with us.
AllTrails is a proud Australian owned company with a great reputation in the bicycle tour industry. We have earned that reputation through hard work and dedication and we sincerely care about every person on every tour. Our large community of loyal AllTrails riders that keep coming back year after year are testament to the high standard of tours that we provide. We consider ourselves the best in the business and we always make sure that our tours represent great value at a fair price.
