FIRST STAGE OF MELBOURNE TO SYDNEY RIDE: From the seaside suburb of Melbourne's St Kilda, through Snowy Mountain and Ned Kelly country, to the highest point in Australia. Mt Kosciuszko is akin to Mt Everest - the highest peaks in their respective lands. Although dramatically different in height and shape, the two mountains share exciting names that conjure up images of exploration and achievement. Both were named after men in high esteem and we have the opportunity to celebrate and share the summit, marvel at the 360 degree views and ponder the man-made roads and nature's rivers below as they twirl their way through magnificent Snowy Mountains. All rivers run to the sea along the easiest route possible. We have chosen the most efficient machine possible and have added a few hills, a few towns and a few people to make this ride the most exciting way that one could ever imagine of traversing the magical green carpet that extends beyond the horizon. The salty sea breeze at St Kilda will slowly turn into crisp mountain air from melting snow that will fill your lungs to capacity as you enjoy the natural wonder of propelling yourself on a bicycle with new-found friends from Melbourne to the highest point in Australia, Mt Kosciuszko.
