This is a 8 day bike trip which is a really good way to see the coast. The choice is to either camp or stay in hostels between ride days. To start the trip, we catch a train to a town called Warrnambool which is the start of the Great Ocean Road and 400km South West of Melbourne. Using 8 days to ride back to the city, we rest in various towns for food and water, breathing in coastal air at photo stops. There is public transport and hitchhiking options along the entire road, which is good if you want to only do half the journey.
When: September 21st - 28th 2013
Why: Good for fitness, fun, and team work.
How: Hiring equipment such as bikes and tent. Train ticket to Warrnambool. Booking hostels if necessary.
