1 Roo:
I’m relatively fit and comfortable on the bike and happiest on mild gradients or the flat.

2 Roo’s:
Fitness and health is my life. I ride regularly on a weekly basis with mates and am comfortable with rides of around 4 hours at a relatively strong pace.

3 Roo’s:
Riding is my life! I’m not interested in racing, I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I love the challenge and the idea of where my legs and bike can take me. My friends and I are always looking for the next cycling adventure.

  • We’ve found the best network of backroads around Crows Nest, Qld, to give you a great cycling weekend getaway.

    Tour Highlights

    Located on the crest of the Great Dividing Range , Crows Nest in Queensland is surrounding by rolling hills, farmland and awesome riding opportunities, IF you know where to go! Let us show you!

    Get away from the crowds and surround yourself in beautiful countryside, all only 2hrs from Brisbane

    What sort of cycling experience do I need?

    VéloRoo Adventures are not about setting the fastest time, but having the best time!
    If you are comfortable and have some experience riding in a group, you’ll be fine. Our adventure peloton sizes range from around 8 – 12 people.

    You need to be comfortable riding at least 50 kilometres in a day. The area around Crows Nest is not mountainous, but undulating. We’ve researched the best routes to navigate the hilly countryside.

    There’s no mountain biking rocks and jumps, but by their nature, unpaved roads can offer soft or loose gravelly sections or areas that may have some slight erosion after seasonal weather.

    What sort of bike do I need?

    You will need something that can handle dirt and gravel roads: a Gravel Bike, Mountain Bike or Electric Mountain Bike. Give us a call to discuss the suitability of your bike if you are unsure.

    Bike Hire available

    If you don’t have your own bike that’s suitable for the gravel riding, don’t worry!

    We have gravel bikes for hire, just contact us for more details. We can also arrange for e-bike hire.

    • 3 guided rides on our hand picked routes
    • vehicle support – no need to weigh yourself down like a pack horse
    • Complimentary return transfers from Brisbane to Crows Nest for you and your bike – no need to drive (bike hire available)
