But, with so many things to do in Cairns, the cycling is only part of the experience. You could also go for a ride on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway up to Kuranda to explore this unique village before returning via the Kuranda Scenic Railway. We can also arrange all meals to enjoy delicious food in some of the many cafes and restaurants in town.

Plus, you have the option to arrange your own accommodation or we can also arrange this for you, providing you with a choice of 3, 4 or 5 star accommodation right in the heart of the city.

So, if you simply need someone to guide you around the region to ensure you maximise your time on the bike, exploring the many hidden backroads, seeing the most picturesque parts of Cairns, then we have a package for you. Or, if you’re looking for someone to fully arrange everything for you, including all accommodation, meals, activities, airport transfers and guided rides with support car, then we also have a package for you. It’s totally up to you!

Friday

Today’s ride : 3 pm departure | Post travel recovery ride of 38.4km / 23.9 miles – 280m / 919 feet

We will greet you at the airport and provide transport back to your chosen accommodation which we have booked for you or that you have arranged yourself. We will meet at 3pm to head out for a short spin to explore the outer areas of the city of Cairns. There is so much more to this city than just the Esplanade and free swimming lagoon!



DAY 2 - Cairns to Copperlode Dam, Crystal Cascades, Barron Gorge and return

Saturday

Today’s ride : 8am departure | 85.2km / 52.9 miles – 1,343m / 4,406 feet

A solid day awaits as we take in some of the most popular cycling routes for the locals. First we will enjoy the climb out to Copperlode Dam, followed by a rolling hill journey around to Crystal Cascades. Then it’s out to Barron Gorge before heading back to Cairns for lunch in town.

You’ll then have the rest of the afternoon to explore Cairns before enjoying dinner at one of the many beautiful restaurants in town for those that choose the full tour package.



DAY 3 - Cairns beaches and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

Sunday

Today’s ride : 8am departure | 90km / 55.9 miles – 466m / 1,529 feet

Today we will visit some of the most beautiful beaches in Far North Queensland! After riding north we will enjoy a coffee overlooking the palm trees and white sands at Palm Cove. We will then wind our way back to Cairns via all the northern beaches, each with a unique waterfront view. Trinity Beach has a very special place in Australia’s wartime history. You will see where the Australian troops practiced their WW2 D-Day landings right here in Australia.

Then, it’s back to Cairns to enjoy a free afternoon. For those that have selected the full tour package we have an exciting afternoon planned as we will then transport you out to the Cairns Skyrail Rainforest Cableway.

The iconic Skyrail experience is a must do Cairns attraction that provides a truly unique perspective of Australia’s World Heritage listed tropical rainforest – you will be immersed in the sights, sounds, smells and tranquility of one of the most botanically fascinating areas on earth. We will have lunch in Kuranda before jumping on the Kuranda Scenic Railway for the trip back down the range. We will then enjoy a beautiful dinner in town.



DAY 4 - Check-out

Monday

Today’s ride : 3 pm departure | Post travel recovery ride of 38.4km / 23.9 miles – 280m / 919 feet

It’s time to say farewell and head to the airport or perhaps get a few cheeky kilometers in the legs for those that are keen for an early spin before checking out.

We are more than happy to help you with any further travel plans.

You’ll head home with amazing memories of your short time cycling around this beautiful region.
