What to expect?

In May 2019, Bicycle Network took 125 people from across Australia, New Zealand and the US, to Central Australia to experience this life changing experience on the Great Outback Escape.

“What strikes you most about Central Australia is the light. With an almost spiritual pull, it works its magic on you at the start and end of the day. As it moves through the sky, the sun throws out hues of blue, purple, orange and pink, altering the shade of the landscape every couple of minutes.

The light and landscapes didn’t go unnoticed by the 125 tight-knit group of Great Outback Escape riders who had the privilege of seeing, feeling, tasting, hearing and sharing this experience all from the unique perspective of a bike.”
