Place:Australia
When:Aug 15, 2017.
 

If you’re ready to see the best of Australia through a slightly different perspective, you should hop on your bike and start cycling, because thousands of miles await you. Australia’s wide roads, meandering trails and open breathtaking vistas are stretching as far as the eye can see! The warm weather and open roads of the Land Down Under are an ideal choice for a mesmerizing adventure, and, with this in mind, here are five of Australia’s most popular cycling trails.

Bass Coast Rail Trail


The Bass Coast Rail Trail is surrounded with beautiful nature and laid-back beaches. You can expect this cycle to be just as enjoyable as it is relaxing. Regardless of how seasoned you are at cycling, if you’re looking for something calm and peaceful, yet a bit adventurous, this 17-kilometer stretch will be perfect for you. The best part: if you’re a surfing enthusiast or an experienced surfer, you can always make a quick break and enjoy your time riding the waves and chilling on a number of pristine beaches.

Great Ocean Road


When it comes to road trips and cycling, the Great Ocean Road is among the most popular choices in Australia. With all of its scenic beauty, this road has more to offer than just mesmerizing surroundings, way more. Experiencing impeccably clear beaches, whopping cliffs and a luscious rainforest is definitely more exciting on a bicycle than looking out of a car window. The Great Ocean Road is a thrilling ride that starts in Torquay and ends 250 kilometers later, in Warrnambool. Bear in mind, however, that, although it offers a relaxed journey, this ride takes five to six days to finish on a bicycle.

Bondi to Mt Kosciuszko trail


The tallest mountain in Australia, Mt. Kosciuszko is connected to the iconic Bondi Beach in Sydney via this thrilling cycling trail that is 658 kilometers long. Depending on your pace (and shape), the Bondi to Kosciuszko trail takes between 6 and 8 days to complete, but no matter how fit and quick you are, you can rest assured that you will be soaking in some of the most beautiful landscapes on the Sydney coastline, southern highlands, as well as on the Snowy Mountains. This journey is best taken on during the months of March through April, given that the roads near Mt. Kosciuszko might be closed from June to September.

Wollemi Cycle Trail


Despite the fact that it is only mere 80 kilometers away from Sydney, the Wollemi National Park is a part of Australia that offers quite a diverse flora and fauna. Although a luscious wildlife isn’t uncommon in Australia, the Wollemi Cycle Trail is one of the most comfortable rides out there. Don’t think of this trail as competition – feel free to stop by small towns that stretch inland from Katoomba and soak in the local experience.


After this cycle route takes you to the Newnes Plateau and all the way through the Glow Worm Tunnel, you can expect to reach an isolated valley, where the majority of people you’ll meet (if any) are fellow cyclists. This is a 442-kilometer trail that takes about 6 days to be explored, but we suggest riding it in sections, so that you can finish it quicker, while exploring its best parts.
Although this trail can be taken on at any time of the year, a winter cycling adventure will require gear for sub-zero temperatures come nighttime, so ordering from a trusted online bike store in Australia might be a good idea.

The Gap to Mt Glorious


Finally, if you’re looking for a challenge, this trail that starts in Brisbane and ends at Mt. Glorious, covering 60 kilometers over Mt. Nebo is going to fit you like a glove. Suitable for cycling all year round, this trail takes 1 to 2 days to complete, but it will require some preparation, seeing as how this climbing ride tends to get somewhat steep, plus certain road parts aren’t really well-maintained. Proper protective equipment goes without saying here.
