“Cycling is such a great way to see the country, stay fit and keep your mind and body happy. We have the most amazing vineyards, farms and coast to see. These tours are unique. You will meet the most wonderful people farming this land, growing grapes, farming oysters, and living life to the full. They have invited us onto their land. Come on my tours and experience a new way of seeing Tasmania. Closed from 1st June-1st September 2017
