Cairns (start) - Cairns (finish)

The Topbike 2021 Cairns to Cooktown Tour will be 7 days (6 nights) fully supported, off the tourist route where possible, riding up to 105k a day (but not every day), starting and finishing in Cairns.   Group size will be limited to 13, with 3 staff.  There are plenty of opportunities for extra riding, if the planned day’s ride may not be enough for you.

With a Cairns start and finish, we’ll be kicking off with two days in Atherton.  Moving north from Atherton, we’ll transport into Daintree, before riding through to Cape Tribulation, for two nights.  Here we will experience the beauty of Cape Tribulation, along with a visit to Wujal Wujal for a ‘Welcome to Country’ and guided rainforest walk, accompanied by Tea & Damper.  Leaving Cape Tribulation we will ride into Cooktown, via the infamous Lion’s Den Hotel, for the final two nights. 

Your tour guide/host for this tour, David Olle, spent most of the 1980’s working out of Cairns in the Northern Prawn Fishery, covering the east coast, Torres Straits and Gulf of Carpentaria.  In the early 2000’s he twice raced the Crocodile Trophy, traversing many of the roads we use in this tour.  David and Emma, through Topbike, have developed a strong bond with Atherton, as many of the locals have come along on tour to Europe over the past 15 years.  They’ve visited FNQ most every year since their first euro foray.  Topbike has also sponsored a junior development program in the local cycling club.
