COVID-19 Update: 2020 Bike Tour Cancelled

After much heart-wrenching deliberation, the Bike Tour committee has made the call to cancel the 2020 tour. Like everyone else, we have see-sawed between optimism and doom and gloom; but have reached the point where continuing with the tour would place an unacceptable level of risk on our organisation, and of course the riders and tour volunteers. The burden of COVID regulation on the tour was, also, simply too great for a small not-for-profit like ours to bear.
We, like you I’m sure, are hugely disappointed but look forward to a brighter future where we can come together on the Far North Wilderness Bike Tour in 2021!
Thank you for your understanding.
The Bike Tour Organising Crew

On ya bike…   Register now!

Here it is! A brand new 6-day Wilderness Bike Tour for 2020! The route will concentrate on the northern part of the famous Atherton Tablelands with a focus on showcasing the beautiful World Heritage rainforest of the Wet Tropics, south of the Daintree River in North Queensland.

Organisers have planned a gorgeous scenic cycling experience through some of the most beautiful parts of the Far North, with lush tropical rainforest, cool waterfalls and freshwater creeks. In response to rider feedback, the tour has been shortened and the riding less technical and demanding while still exciting enough to appeal to a wide range of riders. This is certainly a 6-day trip of a lifetime through some of Far North Queensland’s best scenery on wilderness mountain trails.

So what keeps so many riders returning year after year? It must be the capped numbers, friendly crew, fabulous food, camaraderie and most of all the spectacular scenery. Book now for six days of awesomeness!

COVID-19 Update:

At this stage, we are all steam ahead and the Far North Wilderness Bike Tour. This event is still over 6 whole months away at the time of writing and we are hopeful that an event like ours; outdoors in a remote area with less than 50 participants can continue. However, should this change, and the event is cancelled due to advice from the Australian Government we want for all of you to be covered and as such, the following revised refund terms will apply:

  • A full refund will be given if the event is cancelled due to COVID-19, or due to associated travel bans you are unable to make it to Cairns. The decision to cancel the event will be in accordance with the advice from the Australian or Qld Government at that time. 
  • A full refund will not be given as a result of a change in mind or personal circumstances – our usual Refund Policywill apply in these cases
