Great Victorian Rail Trail – Nov 2013 – Mansfield to Yea to Tallarook VIC

2 Nov 2013 – 4 Nov 2013
Distance :
125km
Ave. Daily :
42km

This magnificent jaunt through the Great Ocean Road starts on Thursday 17 October and finishes as part of the exciting Bupa Around the Bay in a Day Bike Ride on Sunday 20 October.  In between is the bike ride that you have always wanted to do, and that you will remember forever.

We will guide you along the internationally renowned Great Ocean Road for 3 days, winding past The Twelve Apostles (or is it eight now?) and around popular beach resort towns that are the home of the surfing revolution.  The pounding surf against limestone cliffs is the perfect backdrop for some power pedalling, climbing hills and descending through thick forest from Warrnambool to Port Campbell, to Apollo Bay to Queenscliff.

After our last overnight stop at Queenscliff you will take the ferry across the bay to Sorrento to join the 15,000 plus cyclists in one of Australia’s premier cycling events ‘Around the Bay in a Day’.  The final 100km leg will see you ride proudly in through the finish arch at Alexandra Gardens to the festival atmosphere at the finish line that this famous ride generates.

  • Ride the Great Ocean Road with full support vehicles
  • See the ‘Twelve Apostles’ Marine National Park on the Shipwreck Coast
  • Overnights at Port Campbell, Apollo Bay and Queenscliff
  • Views of pristine sandy white beaches at the base of steep rocky cliffs
  • Cycle past wild ocean surf and through deep thick forest
  • Be a part of one of Australia’s premier cycling events Around the Bay in a Day

Great Ocean Road Bike Rider

“Here I am thinking about an absolutely fantastic, brilliantly organized & supported four day tour. I know I said thanks to Sue, Phil, Ben & the rest of the crew a number of times, but I just cannot express the personal satisfaction, the joy, and the sheer pleasure in being able to do that ride. All of it made possible by two things, the marvelous support, planning, care & good old fashion “Aussie’ attitude of the ALLTRAILS CREW.The other reason being the easily made friendship, comradeship of the entire cycle group. I have never before met such a marvelous group of people.The time spent on the bike, in our lunch breaks & in the evenings was always made just so enjoyable by the individual characters on the ride. Again thanks to all for my memories that will last a life time & also just in case I do have a “Seniors” moment the many fantastic photographs supplied by Alltrails at the end.” John A (NSW)
