Tasmanian Gears and Gastronomy Experience Testimonials
"The Apres Velo Tour was an amazing experience for my first ever cycling tour! The Tassie scenery, awesome support staff and various routes planned out by Beardy all made for an unforgettable experience. The provided dinners and finish at the winery rounded off the perfect trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great week away and looking to explore Tasmania."
Brannan – QLD.
"The most meticulously planned cycling tour I've experienced. I have cycled in Spain and Italy on multiple occasions and the AV tour and adventure was incredible from pre arrangement/communication, to every morning, afternoon and evening of the tour. The accommodation was excellent. The Support riders and vehicle were 1st class. The routes and scenery were off the chart. The ride was very challenging. the dinners and drinks were at super locations. The tourism advice and local info provided was exceptional. Leonard is a gentleman and a superb and friendly host supported by the most professional crew of Beardy, Madi, Tim & Tom. FIVE STAR TOUR!!!"

"Après Vélo tour of Tasmania exceeded expectations. Clearly the local knowledge enabled a well planned ride itinerary which certainly covered the roads less travelled. Combined with unique off bike experiences this tour had it all. A truely memorable week."

"Thanks to Leonard, Beardy, Titch & Justin for an awesome week, spectacular scenery, challenging & rewarding rides, new experiences (gravel!), great company, highly professional/competent/friendly support, safety awareness, expert riding tips (safety & technique) and very well organised off the bike activities (the winery banquet a highlight), along with some memorable downhills! I look forward to doing another Apres Velo tour, whether that be Tassie again, or elsewhere."

"Exceeded my expectations- great rides, support team and apres Velo activities. Took us places we would never have discovered on our own, that highlighted Tassie’s unique beauty. Highly recommend this trip to regular riders and we look forward to further trips. "
Michelle - NSW.
"This was my first "tour" though not my first multi-day ride, and I have to say I'm glad I picked this one. It was hard - no doubt about that - but the overall experience was brilliant. Beardy curated some amazing rides and captured some brilliant images of us; while the AV team organised some off bike experiences that I'll always remember."
