Adventure Tours For
travellers have to say.............
Love the photos. Had a wonderful time. Amazed with
your ability to be organised, cool headed
and ensure we all had a great cycle. An
awesome tour guide.
Will definitely consider another tour with
thanks for the great photos. They make a nice momento of our
wonderful ride with you and the others.
everything organized so well - bikes, accommodation, food,
wine , scenery.
ambience of all the places we ate was great and so
interesting to see handicrafts, conserves, etc.
autumn colours, cows of varying colour, sheep being guarded
by alpaca, Shetland ponies and rolling hills beyond green
paddocks with dams interspersed by stops at wineries,
delicious breakfast, lunch and dinners combined by the great
company all combined to make a wonderful holiday.
As a group of nine mature (55+)
women from Perth, we spent 9 fun filled days travelling around
We rode high quality trails with
easy gradients and spectacular scenery, ate gourmet foods and
sampled excellent wines.
We were given detailed briefing
before each ride, our safety and enjoyment were Jon’s top
priority. Jon is friendly, easy going, highly organized and very

adventure with Jon in 2016.
haven’t had so much fun in years. I enjoyed the stimulating
walk along the north shore of Sydney Harbour with its
breathtaking views, the superb overnight accommodation and
delightful evening meal and the great company.
Beach our bungalow was clean comfortable and quiet and the
evening meal at the local Worker’s Club was delightful and
days of bike riding were both challenging and extremely
rewarding. I still have visions of pumping up those climbs
and the exhilaration of the steep winding descents. I felt
like that little boy who has been coaxed on to a slippery
slide for the first time only to desperately run around to
the big tall ladder, climb up and go down laughing time and
70’s something kid is crying out for more! Thanks to Jon for
having faith in my ability.
you Jon for all your hard work and for transporting the bike

I thoroughly enjoyed my cycling trip. Went to my Sports
Massage therapist on Friday and he commented on my quads so
I must have built up a bit more muscle there. Then at my
weekly Pilates session, they wanted to know how the cycling
was. A couple said that that was the sort of thing their
husband's would like to do. I gave them your contact
I enjoyed checking out your photos on SmugMug. What
beautiful horses you have! Sunset shots are great too.
Look forward to riding with you again some where, some time.

Hi Jon, thought you
might be interested in the tongue-in-cheek account of
our trip that I have written. I seem to always want to
do this after a holiday and it's my way of remembering
where I've been! Anyway as the blurb says, it was
most enjoyable, the photos you sent are great! Hope to
do something similar again some time, cheers Rose - Sept

"To say that I was a little
anxious about going on the "Murray to the Mountains Cycling
Tour" last October is probably the understatement of the year.
You see, I had only started cycling at the end of July & my
"gut" feeling was that it was too soon to tackle a trip like
this. Jon assured me that, with a few additional rides leading
up to our departure, I'd be fine. He was right.
What makes it easy is that Jon transports your bike & all your
gear to Victoria & there's a support vehicle so that if, at any
time, you do need a rest, you can just hop in the van. Jon also
organises all the accommodation (great mix of styles) and meals
(fabulous food & wine), so that all you need to do is relax and
enjoy the ride!
So if you're new to cycling and think that one of Bushranger
Bikes Cycling Tours is beyond you, they're not. It's one of the
best holidays I've ever had, increased my overall cycling
confidence and opened up an unexpected recreational activity
that I will continue to enjoy."

It's hard to believe that a week ago we were in Wellington. It's
been a tough week back at the office and I know where I'd rather
Congratulations on doing such a great job. The organisation,
accommodation, food, transport & all other associated aspects
were great. This holiday has to be one of the best, if not the
best I've ever experienced.
Best wishes & many thanks"

"Thanks to my fellow MTB travellers for their companionship over
the past 10 days, both on and off the track. Also to Jon and
Dale for the execution of their well organised tour, experience
and tolerance to make this a most memorable tour.
Is it on again next year?"
