COURSE

Hometown Tour

Unique, varying and splendid are just some of the words to describe the roads in the small towns and surrounding areas of Melbourne. On this hometown tour, Chain Reaction will take you to areas you've probably never explored on a bike and certainly not as part of a professional style tour. Highlights of this tour include some famous pieces of asphalt: The Great Ocean Road, the Mount Buninyong Nationals Circuit in Ballarat, the flat roads of Central Victoria that hardened the legs of Sir Hubert Opperman and the spectacular Black Spur.
