As far as we know this incredible fat bike adventure, riding every beach from Brisbane to Sydney has been achieved only once before by one (slightly crazy) solo woman!!!..and yes we know her!

We will be using fat bikes for the beach riding which we can supply – or you may bring your own.

This trip is an incredibly satisfying and intense exploration of the NSW coastline, where every long white beach, stunning headland and adventurous river crossing will be imprinted on your mind forever after! Plus we get to enjoy quaint coastal towns, surfing hotspots and fishing villages. Why not throw your surfboard in the bus for this one!

This adventure lends itself superbly to being shared by a group of mates, so get in touch and we can plan!

We will use our 4WD bus and aluminium dinghy for support and plan to camp wild for one or two nights and stay in campgrounds in town for the remainder when perhaps a beer at the pub will go down well! Since some of the headlands are a scramble, those who wish can take a detour with the bus. As a small group, we are adaptable! The following Itinerary is only a guide and we may adapt to suit the group or conditions. We also have to work around the tides and be prepared for very early or late starts.

Day 1- The Spit to Fingal- 45kms We will pick up in Brisbane 8.00 am and head to The Spit at the Gold Coast, where our beach ride adventure begins.

Our Bus and tinnie will be waiting to ferry us across into NSW and we roll on to camp at Fingal Head.
