Frequently Asked Questions

Are bikes included?

You have the option to BYO your bike for this tour and we will look after it for you during the tour.   We recommend a mountain bike standard bike as there are dirt and short bumpy sections on this tour (certainly nothing technical but thick tyres and some suspension will make a big difference to comfort levels and puncture prevention). 

Bike hire is also available with both quality Trek MTB and Trek E-MTB  available. 

  • Trek MTB $350
  • Trek E-MTB $550
How hard is the riding & what are the distances?

This tour is graded as easy to medium.  There are no major ascents or hills to climb and distances are moderate, averaging around 45kms over the course of a full day. 

There is no hurry and our tours are run at a very relaxed pace, with lots of photo stops, drink stops, food stops and just resting stops! 

The only real challenge is the consecutive days riding, which for non or semi regular riders may create some "sensitivity" from sitting on a bike seat so we do recommend some riding before arriving. 

The Rail Trails are a mixed of paved surfaces and dirt tracks, so you should be OK riding on surfaces other than road or paths. 

How big are the groups?

The group size is strictly limited to 10 riders on this tour.   With limited dates available these trips will fill up quickly.  Call us on 1300 665 330 to find out more about this unique and memorable Queensland Cycling Tour.
