Stage 1: Indian Ocean Ride

What a way to start this ride! Get a great taste of the beautiful Turquoise Coast just north of Perth where we stay in picturesque fishing villages, ride through National Parks and take in lovely coastal scenery. The accommodation is great, the food is good (especially the locally caught seafood), and a real highlight will be the chance to cycle the eerie moon-scape of The Pinnacles Desert National Park. This is a great ride for those with a bit less time who want a ride with some challenging distances, nice accommodation and fascinating scenery.

START Foundation

Adding another layer of interest to this ride is our involvement with START foundation. Founding Director Kerryn Harvey explains:

“START Foundation is a not-for-profit registered charity that empowers amputees in life through sport. I am also an upper limb amputee, having lost my arm and shoulder (and almost my life), to a flesh eating bacteria in 2013. I will be riding from Perth to Broome on the back of a tandem, along with a team of supporting cyclists, raising funds for START Foundation. Monies raised will help START Foundation support amputees with the purchase of a new limb or limb modification to enable them to achieve their sporting dreams. I encourage all cyclists to join us in the optional fundraising and help have a positive impact on an amputees life.”

AllTrails has known Kerryn, Renee and others in the START team for many years and we look forward to sharing time with them again on this wonderful ride. More info at www.startfoundation.org.au.

Day to Day

Imagine waking up in the early daylight and looking around and wondering where you are. You may have just spent the night under an impossibly starry sky in the great Australian outback, a beachside resort by a marine sanctuary, or a donga room in a remote outback roadhouse. Either way, you want to get up and get on your bike again ready for another day on this legendary AllTrails long-haul cycle tour from Perth to Broome.

After a hearty breakfast you head on your way as the AllTrails team load your luggage and head up the road to set up your morning tea. The food breaks are at set times enabling all riders to plan their day and the amount of time required to enjoy the sights along the way before arriving at the next food break.

You depart morning tea with a clear focus and understanding of the next leg of the day to lunch which is arranged and/or prepared by our crew. Lunch is a great time to relax, refuel your body and chat to your friends, be it in a bakery, a country pub, the rest area of a remote highway, overlooking the ocean, or deep in a National Park.

Our safety and support vehicles are never far away, one trailing the group as a warning to motorists of the cycling group ahead, and at least one other vehicle travelling among and ahead of the group preparing the food stops, arranging directional signage where required and being on-call for cyclists with mechanical failures or other requirements.

We have 2-way radio communications with trucks and other large vehicles on the road to further increase safety for our cyclists as well as first-aid qualified, and bike mechanic qualified staff. Safety is our number one priority and we strive to make each day as safe as possible – another great advantage of cycling on a tour with AllTrails.

After reaching your overnight destination, usually mid-afternoon, you check in and enjoy a cuppa and snack, shower, or soak in the bath. Often there is a pool for you to lounge around and cool off in, or you may decide to explore the surroundings, go for a walk, share a cold drink with friends or simply relax. It is your life, 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. The famous camaraderie developed on an AllTrails bike ride lasts a lifetime.

Bedtime is not far away, where you put your head down remembering the day and dreaming of tomorrow…

A typical day on the ride:

  • Breakfast 7am, Depart 8am
  • Ride 25-30km to morning tea around 9-10am, half hour stop, usually on the side of the road. Coffee/tea with home-made biscuits, slice, fresh fruits, served up, of course, with some entertaining banter and fun.
  • Ride 35-45km to lunch around 12-1pm. Half hour to an hour, often in a bakery or cafe.
  • Ride 35-45km to our overnight accommodation, usually arriving around 3pm. Check-in, make a cup of tea or have a drink by the pool, or a soak in the bath. Explore the town or visit the local attractions.
  • Evening briefing at 6pm with lots of laughs and stories about today’s ride and safety tips for tomorrow, followed by dinner – usually at the motel restaurant.
  • Off to bed!

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

Arrive Perth -- NA -- Fri 18 May 2018 -- - - D A

PRE TOUR: Make your way to Perth anytime today. It’s a great city so if you have time, make sure you head out and explore. This afternoon we will have a registration and briefing at our tour hotel followed by a group welcome dinner and ‘meet the crew’. Dinner and accommodation tonight is included in the tour cost for both campers and accommodated cyclists.

Perth to Lancelin -- 133km -- Sat 19 May 2018 -- B L D A

Day 1. STAGE ONE – INDIAN OCEAN RIDE. We depart the world’s most remote city via a great bike path that will allow us to dodge the city traffic before hitting the outskirts of town and entering some beautiful Nature Reserves, National Parks and State Forest areas as the Indian Ocean Drive leads us out of the city and into a huge adventure over the next four weeks. Whether you are with us for the entire journey or just this first stage, thanks for joining us – you are in for a treat. There will be no need to ask why this section from Perth to Geraldton is called the Turquoise Coast once you have seen the colour of the ocean in the many secluded bays along the route. As you near our hotel right on the beach at Lancelin, you will hear the waves of the Indian Ocean getting louder and louder. Step out of our hotel door and walk straight over the dunes and take it all in. For some of you it may be your first ocean sunset, which doesn’t happen on the east coast. Nestled between a large bay and sand dunes, Lancelin is known for its crayfish (rock lobster) port and judging by the size of some of the houses around here, catching lobsters is pretty lucrative. We have our first day briefing and dinner, then it’s off to bed for a good sleep.

Lancelin to Jurien Bay -- 117km -- Sun 20 May 2018 -- B L D A

Day 2. Waking to the sound of the crayfish boats heading out at dawn it would be easy to forget that yesterday we were in a city of one and a half million people. After breakfast, you will head out on a road which was merely a sandy track tackled only by the most experienced or fool-hardy 4WDers until the middle of 2011 when a new fully bituminised road was completed. The track on which many a bogged 4WD had come to a watery end was not easy to tame and had its moments; Five unexploded bombs found on land next to the Defence Department site had to be detonated, and an 8km moving sand dune needed to be diverted – all the more reason to enjoy the 65 kms of smooth road and wide shoulder that you will spin over this morning. One of the highlights of this stage is the Pinnacles, encapsulated by Nambung National Park. The detour off the main highway is 7km each way but is well worth the effort to see this series of limestone pillars that have evaded complete erosion, leaving behind yellow sentinels up to 5 metres high in a sea of sand. Surrounded by thick vegetation, Dutch explorers passing in their ships believed this unique landscape to be the remnants of an ancient city. We will have lunch here at this eerie moon-scape before heading back to the main road and on to our overnight stop at Jurien Bay, a vibrant fishing town of 1200 people.

Jurien Bay to Dongara -- 132km -- Mon 21 May 2018 -- B L D A

Day 3. Today we push the pedals further up the winding coastal road where the traffic is sparse and the road passes through small fishing villages, National Parks and lovely coastal scenery. Beekeepers Nature Reserve joins onto Leseur National Park, one of the richest flora reserves in Australia. Here 200 of the 900 plants recorded are either rare or significant. The road leaves the coast for a short time at the end of today’s route before heading back west into the twin towns of Dongara and Port Denison – jewels of Western Australia’s stunning Coral Coast, offering true coastal village charm and the ideal holiday setting. This place is popular for good reason.

Dongara to Geraldton -- 65km -- Tue 22 May 2018 -- B L D A

Day 4. Today is our last day on this stage of the tour and provides excellent coastal scenery, great riding and lots of beaches. It’s the shortest day on this stage, so kick back and take it all in as you cruise past the low coastal vegetation, which provides unobstructed views. Throughout this area you will see leaning gum trees and at first appearances perhaps consider yourself lucky that you are not tackling the same winds that bent over the tress. However, while it is a windy area, it is the salt in the wind that prunes them into the interesting shapes that you see. We arrive in the friendly town of Geraldton and head to our hotel conveniently located in the heart of the city. Congratulations on completing Stage 1 with us! Tonight, we will have a celebratory dinner before our rest day tomorrow.

Geraldton (Rest Day) -- NA -- Wed 23 May 2018 -- B - - -

Day 5. Geraldton began in the 1850’s as an outpost for convicts who built many of the beautiful historic buildings. It has since grown to a major port and service centre for the region. A few not-to-be-missed highlights are the HMAS Sydney Memorial, a moving tribute to the sailors who died in Australia’s greatest maritime disaster and built on top of a hill with breath-taking views. Every day at 10:30 am there is a free tour where volunteers explain its significance. For those who love their history, or even a good story, the museum is a must. The region has an enthralling maritime history with a great display of the Batavia, a Dutch ship that ran aground in 1629. The survivors made it to land only to face a slow and bloody mutiny where over 100 were killed. The story is depicted with fascinating displays and includes the stone portico that was found on the ship. If you are leaving the tour today we can take you to the airport this morning, or you can catch a taxi (12km).

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.

Training for a long distance tour

You really need to be a reasonably keen cyclist, however not necessarily fast, but consistent. If you can sit on an average speed of 20-25 km/hr on the flat, and build your kilometre total distance in training to gradually attain about 100km + a day for 2 days straight, that will usually put you in a good position to be ready for most of our long distance tours. 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.

Insurance – IMPORTANT

Obtaining appropriate insurance is your (very important) responsibility

IMPORTANT: Travel Insurance, either travel overseas or within Australia, is a good investment.

Sponsored content by Jet Travel, a division of Alliance Group.

When you consider the cost of what can sometimes go wrong when or before you travel, insurance is good protection. While people have a general understanding of what is covered, it is always a good idea to read your Product Disclosure Statement. These days they’re easier to read. To ensure you get the best out of your purchase make sure you are clear on the conditions of the Policy before you buy.

Some tips for AllTrails customers:

  • Choose the level of cover that is right for you, not just the price.
  • AllTrails customers should consider selection of the Add-on Benefit Pack for ‘Adventure Sports Pack’. This pack provides some additional specific covers for the activity of ‘expedition bicycle touring’ which are not covered by standard travel insurance covers.

Most Importantly:

  • Purchase your travel insurance once you have booked your tour and your travel. Don’t wait until just before you travel. Cover provided for cancellation expenses, whether it be for flights, accommodation or tour costs, is only active for insured events that happen after the issue date of a Policy. This applies to all products in the market. It stands to reason, i.e. you don’t get to insure your house or car after it has been damaged and expect that insurance will respond.

The Bali volcano event of 2017 is an example of where a number of people who had not purchased their travel insurance at the time of booking their travel, and before the volcano event, found that there was no cover for cancellation. You can prevent this happening to you by finalising your insurance early.

IMPORTANT: Cyclist insurance for accidents & medical:

Cycling can be a dangerous activity and you must be prepared for the worst. You may have an accident in training for the tour or on the tour itself. Cyclist insurance can be bought separately, or it comes with cycling memberships such as Bicycle Network or Bicycle Queensland. This is different to Travel Insurance.



Meals and food on remote tours

Food is always a big part of any cycling holiday! Our emphasis is always on fresh food and a balanced diet with plenty of carbohydrates, proteins, fruit and vegies catering for a cycling holiday, however on some of our longer tours we do find there are often limitations in the remote locations we ride through. We will often supplement local available foods with fruit that we bring with us on tour or stock up at the larger towns. Either way you can always be assured that we are planning ahead and doing our best to look after your health when it comes to fueling your body. We can usually successfully cater for most dietary requirements, even with the challenges of remote locations, 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.

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.

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, on your bike with you. We transport your luggage, drawstring day bags, food & extra water. A detailed list of what is required and provided will be sent to you in your pre-tour info pack.

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.


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.


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

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.

If you need to cancel your tour, cancellation fees due to most unforeseen events will be covered under a travel insurance policy which is why we provide links to travel insurance options. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Accommodation and camping details (Perth to Broome)

The accommodation option gives you twin share lodging on all nights except 2 bush camps (1 night on each of Stages 2 and 3). A tent and inflatable mattress will be provided for you on the bush camp evenings. BYO sleeping bag. Accommodation is very scarce on many stretches of this trip and you will be put up in a variety of lodgings including luxury eco tents, roadhouse dongas, quality city motels and outback resorts. The majority of our accommodation will have ensuites, although on some occasions bathroom facilities will be shared. If you are travelling on your own we will try to match you with another cyclist of the same gender each night (subject to availability).

A Single Supplement option may be offered to early bookers who want their own room, only if accommodation remains after the pre-sale. This will give you your own room on most nights however there are some nights where no single supplement is available. Stage 1: Single Supplement will be available every night. Stage 2: Single Supp ensuite possible on 6 nts, 1 bush camp, 3 nts shared facilities, two of which may be twin share. Stage 3: Single Supp ensuite possible on 10 nts, 1 bush camp, 4 nts shared facilities, two of which may be twin share.

Camping option cyclists will be booked into campgrounds each night of the tour except Perth (Stage 1) and Broome (Stage 3) where you will be housed in our accommodation (twin share). In most townships you will be in a caravan park or similar. In remote areas it may be in the camping ground area of a roadhouse property. Campgrounds include ablution blocks and are very close to our accommodation wherever possible. There are also 2 bush camps for all cyclists.

Pre and post stage accom/camping (Perth to Broome)
