Cycle the Great Ocean Road


The ‘Great Rides’ organised by Australia’s Bicycle Network (formerly BikeVic) are fully supported rides with plenty of options to choose from.  Before kids we did two of their rides (New Zealand’s South Island in 2004 and Tasmania’s West Coast in 2006).  I observed that plenty of families were taking part, including toddlers in trailers.  If you want to give cycle touring a go, but the logistics put you off, then this is a great way to start.  In fact it is how we got started in cycle touring.  They make it very easy for you, and being part of a mobile tent city of cyclists is an unforgettable experience.  For more information check out their website:
