The best multi day cycling events around Australia

cyclists at a multi day cycling event

Multi-day cycling events are becoming very popular in Australia, with over 70 on offer each year.

Long bike trips are a great way to explore the countryside, especially when riding with like-minded souls!

You’ll find a range of different multi-day rides listed, ranging from 2 to 30 days, for riders of different fitness levels. Which means you will need to train for most of these rides.

So you’ll find rides that are perfect for a weekend away. As well as rides that mean a week off from work!

Good luck with not using up all your annual leave on a cycling holiday, as there are some great events on offer!
