Outbike :: Australia & EUROPE


UPDATE AUGUST 2017


In May a small group of us rode the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail and surveyed the work happening on the new Kingaroy to Kilkivan RT - this will be a wonderful 90km ride when fully open. The rail trail will be officially open on 1 Oct. From April 2018 we will be running day rides, busing out from our home town of Noosa and back.


We've confirmed the 2019 Gulf to Gulf (otherwise known as the Bike 'n Wheels Expedition) with 19 riders (who have all reconfirmed their interest), so we're almost full. 


OCT-DEC 2017 


(1) Flinders Ranges 10 days, 30 Oct to 8 Nov

An easy paced and accommodated itinerary. Join in Alice Springs for transfer on our bus via Coober Pedy to Marree. Ride south through the heart of the ranges. Accom at farms, pubs, cabins etc. Suit MTB, cross-country or hybrid bikes. Small numbers.


(2) Eyre Peninsula West Coast 10 days, 27 Nov to 6 Dec 

Join in Alice Springs or Port Augusta for transfer on our bus to Streaky Bay. Ride the quiet Eyre Highway and backroads to spectacular coastal scenery. Accom at farms, pubs, cabins etc. Suit MTB, cross-country or hybrid bikes. Small numbers.


See our AUSTRALIA 2017-18 page.​​

If you need a mini-coach and trailer for a cycle event, talk to us! We have 3 sets now, with coach seating and extended legroom for 18 to 21 passengers. We also have special trays to secure bikes. They run around between Noosa, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Alice, sometimes with weeks spare and sometimes relocating. Great opportunity to get the club on the road with a fab support bus!
