Sorrento Winter Escapade
Sorrento Winter Escapade
Saturday 23 June 7am to Sunday 24 June 2pm (approx)
Enjoy a challenging ride down to the Morninton Peninsula via the Arthur’s Seat climb and a wonderful social night away in Sorrento.
Your Hosts: Hannah & Roey
This is a luxurious bike packing overnighter where your luggage will be transported in the follow car and you’ll stay in a house on Saturday night.
Day One will see us meet at 7am in Port Melbourne for a quick coffee and pack our bags into the support vehicle. We then ride to Sorrento via Arthur’s Seat (approx 110km). Nearing the end of our ride you will be treated to lunch at The Social at Blairgowrie. This is a no-drop ride, but we would expect that you can comfortably ride at 25kmph on the flat for that distance.
Saturday afternoon you can relax or enjoy the opportunity for socialising. There will be educational talks around injury prevention by your Host and physiotherapist Hannah, as well as a mechanical workshop with Host Andrew. There is also an optional evening matwork pilates session for cyclists to wind down.
Saturday night dinner is entirely your choice and there will be group options to go out as well as eating in.
Day Two after breakfast we will pack our bags back into the support vehicle and ride back to Melbourne via the spectacular coast. Expected return time to Port Melbourne of around 2pm.
Included in the price is your accommodation, the support vehicle, the educational talks/workshops, lunch at the Social Blairgowrie, pre-ride coffees on both days, provisions for breakfast, ride snacks and wonderfully supportive hosts.
Not included is dinner on Saturday night which can be solo, or as a group we can decide to eat out or make a meal at home
What to wear? Suitable ride clothing for Melbourne's weather on the day.
What to bring? A change of clothes for Saturday afternoon and evening and your overnight essentials and your ride gear for Sunday's return.
