A bicycle association has teamed up with state governments to design the world's longest Bike Path which runs from Adelaide through Melbourne and Sydney and finishing in Brisbane. A network of Wooden Tents in picturesque coastal locations makes the ride possible for many. Small enclaves of Wooden Tents are placed every 40km and are a great place to swap stories, recuperate and meet people from all over the world. The path passes by wineries, rivers, The Great Ocean Road, suburbs, small towns, cities, pubs, cafes, op shops, farms, mountains, forests, sacred sites and beaches. The path can be tackled in sections or in one mammoth effort.
