Self Guiding

Self guided cycling tours do require participants to be adaptable and able to solve issues whilst on tour.  On call support is included in your tour, but it is expected that you will know how to repair punctures and make minor adjustments to gears, handlebars and seats if required, and if bringing your own bike then this is expected. For anything more serious, we will be able to assist with a call to our 1300 665 330 number at any time during your trip.  You should be able to read a map and follow directions, either on a device or a printed map (supplied) and that you have a good sense of direction.   Getting a little bit lost, or having to ask locals for directions is all part of choosing to travel on a self guided basis.  The maps and directions provided to you is updated regularly and tailored to your specific trip (hotels, restaurants are noted, and marked).  If this is something that makes your nervous or uncertain, or if you know for sure that you can’t fix a puncture or aren’t confident reading a map, then we do recommend our extensive range of small group fully guided tours where all the stress of navigation, bike maintenance and logistics are all done for you.  However, if comfortable with this then the freedom of a self guided cycling trip is wonderful, and once confident can be the preferred choice across our range of cycling tours. 

There is some transport required between the regions as follows:

  • Day 1: Adelaide to Barossa start of day
  • Day 2: Barossa to Auburn start of day
  • Day 3: No transport required
  • Day 4: Auburn back to Adelaide or onward journey at end of tour

You have the choice of:

  1. Own transfers throughout. If no access to own vehicle we recommend hiring a car in Adelaide (no bike transport is required so any small or medium car is fine.  Try Avis in Adelaide.
  2. Transfers throughout can be provided for an additional $750 (ideal for groups using our bus and driver for this tour).

We were 4 ladies from Christchurch New Zealand. This bike ride through glorious wine country, Barossa, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale would have to be the best we've ever done! Everything including the itinerary, the bikes, food and especially the knowledgable, friendly and fun guy our tour guide Paul, was outstanding. We loved it 😀 We thoroughly recommend this tour!
