Ride with us ...
Ride with us on the picturesque backroads on the crest of the Great Dividing Range.
I’m relatively fit and comfortable on the bike and happiest on mild gradients or the flat.
I regularly ride for fitness, dry days I ride to work, and weekend fun with friends. I enjoy an active healthy lifestyle and occasional physical challenges.
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.
I ride on average 250 + k’s a week and enjoy a 100k rides on the weekends. I love to train, improve, and sometimes challenge amongst my friends.
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.
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.
