Cycle Around Australia - March 2013 to September 2013
'Cycle Across Oz' is a long distance cycle touring business, based in Melbourne. To date, Cycle Across Oz has run three cycle tours on the Perth - Melbourne route, one on the Darwin - Adelaide route, one on the Rockhampton to Darwin route and most recently from Broome to Perth. During the early part of the Darwin to Adelaide tour in 2006, the talk turned to planning a cycle tour across the Top End. That resulted in the Rockhampton to Darwin ride. During that ride, there was a sense of unfinished business - why not ride all the way across. Two reconnaissance trips in the winter of 2009 and in early 2010 proved that Darwin to Perth would be tough but Broome to Perth was doable. Now that all the doable has been done, it is time to take on what has never been done by an organised tour - go all the way around. The reconnaissance on the last leg has been done and a route chosen along the Great Inland Way from Melbourne to Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.
