Feedback from 2024 participants   

I have felt safe and cared for 100% of the time. Wined and dined deliciously, entertained to the max. Attention to detail was flawless. I am in awe of the organisation. I salute thee.

I was so impressed with the team. Very professional, knowledgable, friendly, happy. The ride was very well run. I appreciated team members being stationed at road crossings and the coffee stops with Flat Bickie. Everyone was so welcoming.

How did you find being based for event duration?


It was fabulous! It worked with precision. I loved it! Everyone seemed comfortable and it worked well with having our caravan with us. I liked having the time to relax at the end of each day and participating in all the activities.

How did you find the support team?


Wow!! We did not expect to have so much friendly support. Everyone was so willing to help, knowledgeable and took so much care of both us and our bikes. The ambulance was a comfort whenever we glimpsed it on the trail.

How did you find the meals?

Absolutely perfect! Greatly exceeded any expectations or hopes we might have had. We loved the variety, quantity, quality and the use of small local vendors which gave us a great insight into the area. We brought our own snacks but didn't even open them as there was plenty of food at just the right times.
