Transport there and back for you and your bike
We have planned transport options to make your journey to and from the ride as easy as possible. Below is a summary but full details and conditions are included in the Getting There and Back info sheet.
Give your bike to us before you “leave home” through our extensive Home or Depot Services and your journey will be even easier. We figure if you don’t have your bike to lug everywhere then you can use all the regular services just like a ‘normal’ tourist or resident. For details of the excellent bike transport options available see the summary below and the Bike Transport info sheet. This service is now available to riders doing the Taste of CQ and Yungaburra Express short ride options.
