Description

CycleHosts have created an unique experience to support you for four days of amazing riding.

Arrive in Merimbula on Friday 1st November and set up your bike. If you are flying in, pack your bike in a disposable cardboard box.

We will meet for dinner on Friday evening and conduct a full ride briefing.

Saturday morning we meet to watch the sun rise at Merimbula Beach, have coffee, then pack our bags into the support vehicles and set off on an epic 4 day adventure!

Day 1 will cover approximately 135km and finish with a lovely downhill section into the town of Cooma
Day 2 you will ride approximately 100km to Jindabyne. There is the option to include an additional 60km completing an out-and-back to the end of the sealed road at Mt Kosciusko
Day 3 starts with climbing as we leave the Snowy River in Jindabyne and make our way to up to Threadbo and through the Snowy Mountains to Khancoban for approximately 115km
Day 4 is a long but relatively flat day as we follow the mighty Murray River all the way into Albury for approximately 150km

From Albury, you can catch the train to Melbourne with the CycleHosts team, or up to Sydney, or have a loved one come and collect you!

This ride is fully supported with a mini-bus and van to ensure your maximum safety and enjoyment. Your gear will be transported each day and key stops will be made for water and nutrition.

On this weekend you book your own accommodation for Friday, Saturday & Sunday nights. This allows you to ride fully supported during the day and rest each night in a manner which matches your personal budget and style. If you want to camp we will carry your tent for you. CycleHosts has booked accommodation for everyone at Khancoban on Sunday as there is very limited options and this will be included in the final ride cost.
