Attention Cyclists in Melbourne, Sydney, and Wellington

Have you ever toyed with the idea of joining one of our cycling tours, but felt a tad intimidated at the thought of undertaking a multi-month cycling journey, having no idea what you are really getting yourself into? You aren’t alone.

Last week, we announced a series of ‘free rides’ in North America to give people the opportunity to test drive our tours without committing any serious money or time. Now here is that same offer for our friends living in Australia and New Zealand.

Ride with TDA as our Guest

cycling along Yarra River Melbourne

On the Trans-Oceania cycling tour, we are passing thru Melbourne, Sydney, and Wellington (NZ) among many other cities. We have outlined below how you could join us in one of these cities. We would love to introduce you to what we do, and prove to you that this is not only for uber athletes, or experienced adventurers. It’s for anyone willing to try something a little different, to take on a real challenge, and be rewarded with tired legs a deep sense of accomplishment.

Learn the joys of camp life, new cycling friends, and the new routines that make our tours a memorable and unique experience.

We will carry your bags on our support vehicles and feed you most meals during the ride. We will also cover your camping fee. Transportation to meet us and hotel costs are not included and you will need to come with your own bike and camping gear.

Here are three options to choose from, but if you live in Adelaide, Auckland, Queenstown or elsewhere near our route, we would be happy to have you meet us as well. Please email us and we can work out the details. Limited spots available, so let us know soon.

Trans Oceania Free rides.
Hi I got sent your notice about the free rides. I would be interested in joining in on Melbourne leg, or even starting in Adelaide if that is an option, last option would be Canberra (depends though on what the route taken to Sidney is).
I look forward to hearing more. I spent a month earlier this year with a bunch of 2011/2013 TDA C2C riders and heard so much about your tours.

Resending as not sure if this went through

    Hi Elizabeth, We have emailed you the details.

I live just on the outskirts of Canberra and would love to accompany you on the ride to Sydney in November.
Been on some Adventure Cycling rides in America in years gone past and would love to give the TDA a try for a few days.
Have always dreamed of doing your Africa ride ever since reading David Haughton’s book years ago. I did the TDC ride in 2003 with him but that was a while ago.
Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Rick, At this point the Canberra – Sydney section is full. I’ll let you know if a spot opens up. We do have space on the Melbourne – Bairnsdale section.

Hi,
We made inquiries a few months back and indicated our interest in the Silk Route 2018. We are interested in the Melbourne-Bairnsdale or Canberra-Sydney ‘free rides’ advertised in your most recent newsletter …
Are you abke to give us any more info on the actual routes these parts of the rides will take?
Thanks heaps,
Kerrie and Graeme

    Hi Kerrie, We have emailed you the details.

Hello,
I’ve been a long term subscriber to the TDA newsletter and have often considered going on one of your tour, particularly the European tours. As a Sydney resident it was great to see the possibility of joining and trialling one of your rides as it comes from Canberra to Sydney. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to join your group as you ride up from Canberra in November.

best regards

Bryan Maher
