How Mulga grades its multi day bicycle tours

The focus of every Mulga tour is on enjoying each day, rather than piling up kilometres or racing the clock. Our goal is to soak in the scenery and relish the journey.

That said, wherever you go in Australia you are bound to come across a hill or two, so some of our tours are more challenging than others. To help you choose a tour that suits you, we group our tours into four grades: Easy/Medium, Medium, Medium/Hard and Hard. The table below explains these grades.

Every tour is accompanied by a support vehicle, so if you’d like a rest at any point, you’re free to hop in. We also find again and again that riders surprise themselves once they’re out on the bike with a supportive bunch of fellow riders.  

The ability to ride safely and confidently on the road with traffic over the distances we cover is necessary for all our tours.

If you have any doubts, just give us a call.
