    Insurance and vaccinations

    It is a condition of joining our trips that you must be adequately insured. All persons are expected to arrange their own travel insurance.

    Cycle support and grading

    All of the time you will have the security of a back-up vehicle. The vehicle will carry our entire luggage (we transport your main baggage by support vehicle from each overnight stop to the next). The back up van will be with us throughout the day stopping around every 15 miles. Our leaders carry a good tool kit and will help to fix any bike problems so all you normally need to carry is a daypack, for your camera etc, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be equipped for all repairs, so you must ensure that your bike is in good working order before the tour. If in doubt, have it fully serviced by a bike shop before you travel.

    Equipment and bike stuff

    This tour is suitable for most bicycles; however, please ensure that you bike is in good working order before you leave on tour. If you are not the most mechanically minded we suggest that you get your bike looked at by a professional bike mechanic. In particularly we would suggest looking and adjusting all wheel spokes, greasing all your bearings, checking your brakes/gears cable, tighten all nuts and bolts, check chain, quick release clamps, tires and put in new inner tubes and check wheel rims are not worn. In addition make sure the bike is well serviced and ride it with as much care and attention as possible. We would also advise the following tools to accompany you on your tour: multi-tool, tyre levers, pump, 2 spare inner tube, if applicable, spares for any unique or high-tech items on your bike, e.g. fluid and bleed kit for hydraulic brakes. In terms of clothing this is clearly up to you and we can only supply a rough guide as to what to take. This guide is entirely flexible and should be tailored to your specific needs.

    How much money goes to charity?

    At 25000spins we pride ourselves on running professional trips at unbeatable value. Our core reason for running these cycle trips is to maximise the funds that actually reach the field and help people in need.

    The deposit amount you pay as a cyclists doesn’t fully cover the trip and event costs. For the first three years of operation 25000spins covered the balance of these trip costs. However as we expanded the number of trips offered and the number of people joining increased this was no longer sustainable.

    We invoice the balance (Trip costs – your deposit) of the trip costs back to the charity only when you successfully fundraise. If you don’t fundraise we don’t invoice the charity any money. We keep our trip costs as low as possible without impacting on your safety and enjoyment. 

    Is this trip for me?

    Absolutely! This trip is a fantastic challenge for anyone wanting to do something amazing for a great cause. There will be lots of like minded people on the trip all looking for the challenge of a lifetime and of course to meet new friends. Some people come with friends or family.Places are strictly limited so to avoid disappointment apply to join today.

    How fit do I need to be?

    We will be cycling as a group so you must be comfortable with group riding. The tour caters to the keen weekend cyclists. Riding in either the fast or slower groups depending on your experience and fitness. There will be support vans their all the way to help you reach your goal of cycling the Great Ocean rd.

    Is there a minimum to be raised?

    A minimum of $1,250 needs to be raised to join the trip.

    What if I don't raise the minimum of $1,250. Can I still go on the trip?

    You can either choose to top up your fundraising to reach the miniumum of $1,250 to join the trip or you will be charged a cancellation fee in addition to your sign up. 25000spins.com offers as much support as possible to avoid this situation happening.
