Ride Details

The Moonta Easter Cycle is a weekend of relaxed ‘cycling’ fun with family and friends.

The Moonta Easter Cycle is a relaxing 3 day cycling weekend at Moonta with family and friends over the Easter long weekend. Moonta is found just 160km from Adelaide on the Yorke Peninsula.

This is not just a weekend of cycling. It is a weekend away that is filled with activities and rides of varying distance and duration for riders of all abilities (the kids included). You’ll be camping and it is fully catered, which means a weekend off from cooking! You’ll find rides to satisfy the needs of both road, gravel and mountain bikers.
