Trips can be cycled just the way they are, or customised for you. All-inclusive package prices for each trip include bike hire, accommodation, all passenger and luggage transfers, personalised trip notes and a detailed pre-departure briefing. If you prefer to go freedom, you can just hire the bikes. We are also specialists in electric bike trips on the Great Taste Trail.
