What are Bushranger Bikes Back Country Cycling Tours all about?

Adventure Tours For Adventurous People:

Bushranger Bikes organises and runs a range of fully supported tours in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and New Zealand - offering the best recreational cycling trails & routes in the world.

All Bushranger Bikes rides, tours, and cycling activities are primarily off-road (or away from busy roads) and fall into a category that I call 'Back Country Tours'.  Rail Trails, Wine & Food Trails and my new Whale Trail TM are the Bushranger Bikes speciality, and my trips aren't just about cycling - they provide the full holiday experience that highlights everything the destinations have to offer.

The tour packages that Bushranger put together cater for small groups (6 to 8 people) and are suitable for all adventurous recreational cyclists. They offer an unforgettable adventure experience that will take you to the best scenery, wrap you in seasonal colour, acquaint you with local history, leave you breathless with awesome scenery - mountains, glaciers, beautiful lakes, rivers, fiords, wide open spaces, 'big sky country' or ocean vistas - and leave you dreaming about remote rail trails and fantastic food and wine. 

The Bushranger Bikes tour trademark is a mix of adventure, achievable challenges, heaps of fun, personalised service and a focus on safety and good tour management.  Great food and quality accommodation are assured - places that are different, historic, remote or boutique. 

More information on my tours can be found on the Calendar page, Tour page or check out the 'Feature Tour' above.
