Bike Odyssey cycle tours hotels

What is happening in Europe?

We all can’t wait to be back on the bike exploring the world.

For some (our US and UK riders) this will be sooner rather than later as they head off on Odyssey in just over a month’s time.

Even from lockdown in Australia, there is light at the end of the tunnel!

Covid Travel Update July 2021

Beyond having an amazing experience on and off the bike, both your and our European team’s health and safety are our primary concerns.

Our European team is led by Bruno Ramain, the tour leader for both Venetians and Othello. Bruno is a magnificent veteran guide who just returned from pre touring Morocco last week (for Venetian riders you can read the email we sent post this pretour below). He is currently taking a custom group from the USA following the Tour de France. Life is almost back to normal in Europe and North Africa!

Jacobs Ladder Bicycle Climb Tasmania

The best climb in Tasmania?

If you don’t mind a bit of gravel this would be hard to argue with. Spectacular views, super quiet roads, switchbacks, hors categories climbing…

In 2019 we made this part of our Tasmania – UnderDownunder Odyssey. Prior to this we had bypassed to the north, unwilling to test our roadie crowd on the dirt. However we certainly haven’t regretted the change as it certainly is a climb to remember, up there with the European greats.
