Description

Our Saturday morning starts in the township of Gisborne - an easy 50 minute drive from Melbourne. We gather for coffee and to welcome each other to a fantastic weekend of riding.

Here we also place overnight bags in the support vehicle. The vehicle team will meet us along the way to provide nutrition and words of encouragement and - if necessary - any mechanical support.

Taking in some of the lovely towns of the region, we eventually finish in just north of Hepburn Springs and will be staying in the stunning luxury tents on a private property at Yandoit. These tents are sold out all year but CycleHosts has done the work to create a magical weekend for you!

With some luck and a clear sky, we will be watching the sunset whilst eating around a fire and sampling produce from the region.

The route consists of approximately 80km of lovely flowing trail, great food stops and local characters ready for a friendly conversation. It is ideal for gravel, cyclocross or hard tail mountain bikes.

Rider numbers are strictly limited with one tent per person/couple.

This is a fully supported overnight escape with two hosted rides, luggage transfer, a wonderful dinner under the stars and breakfast included.

Your luxury tent accommodation includes:
- Pillow top queen or double bed in a Luxe or Bell private tent
- 8 TOG goose down quilts
- Luxury linen, blankets, pillows & throws
- Bath towels and hand towels
- Hot water bottle
- In-tent pendant light, table and chair set
- In-tent Dyson fan or wood fire stove (weather dependent)
- 26L Esky
- Bose Bluetooth speaker.
- USB port for mobile phone charging
- Spacious modern country style toilets and showers

You could also add a visit to the Hepburn Springs Bathhouse for a total indulgence weekend! The support car can help with transfers.
