Stretch your muscles and raise a sweat; skim down a long mountain descent; twist and dip along forest tracks; glide through open country on smooth roads. Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and smells of the bush: the sharp tang of eucalyptus, soft and strident calls of birds, tiny flowering plants, immense ancient forests and rushing rivers.
We look forward to sharing a cycle journey with you!

Sam's solar trike adventure around Australia.
On Monday March 11 2013,Sam Mitchell set off to travel around Australian on a solar / human powered trike. Sam has been a guide, mechanic, route consultant and general assistant in all things bike with Snowy River Cycling for the past 3 years.
His trike is home built of materials sourced largely from the local tip (solar cellls, motor and tricky electrical bits are all new) and his goal is to reach all four compass points of Australia as he travels for the next year, before starting a degree in Renewable Energy Engineering in 2014.
