Thanks to everyone who attended this year’s tour – it was a great success & we had a great night at Ulong, thanks to Carol & Steve for all their hospitality. We look forward to doing it again in 2018.
A beautiful cycle with lots of challenges for those wishing them, yet enough time for all to participate. It takes you through some of the most scenic areas of the NSW mid north coast, including world heritage listed rainforests. Costs – payable at each venue.
