An overnight bike camping tour along beautiful dirt roads in the Southern highlands. There’s a couple of long climbs , so easy gears and wide tyres will make it more pleasant. Perfect for Surlys.

Sat March 8

7:24am train from central to mittagong (change at Campbelltown). We arrive at 9:42 for a 10am start from the station.

It’s pretty much all dirt once we get out of mittagong, and dropping down to the Wollondilly River Station where we will be camping. It’s a lovely spot by the river, so pack your toggs. We will leave our gear here. 45km

Saturday afternoon – Either flake out by the river, or ride up another climb to Wombeyan Caves for an icecream and cave visit, Then ride back to the river. I’m thinking an indian communal meal, Bring your curry ! 40km

Sunday March 9

Ride back up the big climb and then visit a winery or two on the way back to Mittagong station. 45km

If you’ve bought a sweet Surly from us and would like to take it for a run, please RSVP to info@cheekytansport.com.au
