Central West Cycle Trail Self Guided Cycle Tour Reviews
"Good riding through open country of western NSW mostly on reasonably good gravel roads. There had been plenty of rain before our tour so we navigated a few spillways which was fun as well. Accommodation was variable but all acceptable and same with the meals. Navigation with the app worked well no problem. Bikes were brand new and no big problem. Need to improve puncture resistance from a spikey weed. Enjoyed the trip and would do it again." B. Hartnett, Prospect.
You'll be happy to hear that we're improving our bikes with puncture-proof tyres that will be better suited for the rugged conditions of the Central West - Australian Cycle Tours team.
"☆☆☆☆☆ Wonderful trail and everything was very well organised." C. Baxter, NSW.
"Good route, enjoyed it. Great value to see the effect on small regional villages... new business post drought, covid etc." H. Mackinnon, Longford.
"Almost everything went well. Bikes great, navigation app almost perfect and accommodation fun." J. Jeffrey, Canberra.
Central West Cycle Trail Supported Cycle Tour Reviews
"☆☆☆☆☆ Shawn was professional and friendly. The routes were great and our app and the information supplied was top rate. The scenery and roadside food stops were amazingly beautiful. We always felt fully supported, but our journey as cyclists was independent and so fun was had by all." S. Smith, Orange.
"The tour was well planned. Our tour guide, Shawn, is an excellent guide and treated us well throughout the trip. Good support vehicle and ongoing instructions to guide us each day made the tour even more enjoyable." P. Campbell, NSW.
"Great fun with our group. We had such a good time. I was grateful for a lift with the luggage transfer lady in day 2. Such possibilities may need to be available in future." E. Muspratt, Queensland.
"I loved the Central west trail. Australian Cycle Tours were very accommodating and helpful in assisting me to join the tour for one day less, due to a prior commitment. Our guide Shawn was a great help to us all, thoughtful, informative and interesting. The countryside was a picture after heavy flooding and we lucked in with the weather. Only one very windy day, and blue skies the rest." L. Cunningham, Mosman.
"I really enjoyed the adventure. Dubbo motel was very generous in letting us use their washing machine and dryer." A. Hill, Maroochydore.
"Great trip, 6 days of riding, a bit challenging at times, but enjoyable. Most of the accommodation was really good, especially in the motels, only 1 pub wasn’t that great. Shawn did a great job of making lunch every day and carting our gear around. Only 6 of us on the tour, but the people we were with were a bundle of laughs, so a great time was had by all." R. Thompson, Rathmines.
Central West Cycle Trail Highlights Self Guided Cycle Tour Reviews
"I loved the trail particularly as the countryside is looking beautiful after a great season of rain. Very atmospheric. The self guided approach worked for us and I found the app useful. The bikes were great and the team were really communicative and helpful. Our luggage was waiting for us at all venues." L. Mitchell, Bronte.
"The organisation and support were both fantastic. Brett was superb. The route worked well. All the small towns were interesting and the facilities were good. Without exception the accommodation was clean and the hosts friendly." S. Blattman, Bokarina.
"Overall a great experience. Difficulty was experienced with navigation due to heavy rain and not wanting to ruin a mobile phone. Slushy wet unsealed road conditions were bypassed on several occasions. Accommodation quality was mixed but eclectic (beds were always comfortable and pub meals surprisingly good). Some upgrades to toilet and shower facilities in pubs are needed for a large group like ours. The hire ebikes performed faultlessly, and bag shuttles worked very well. Perhaps better CWC signage on intersections could be of benefit and encouragement of Airbnb accommodation for cyclists to offer alternative accommodation could help." P. Sorensen, Buderim.
