Hi, Iím wanting to go to Geelong to watch Cadel defend his jersey this year, and also have some friends coming from O/S. We were thinking about taking an organised trip. We could do the self-sorted thing but frankly Iíd rather let someone else do all the work for me. Iíve found three possibles - www.bikestyletours.com, www.islandcycletours.com and www.topbike.com.au. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? They all look pretty good Ė mostly ten days, some riding beforehand, accommodation in Melbourne or Geelong.
I cant offer you any personal opinion on any of the companies because I haven't used them but I will say that I think that an organized tour IS the way to go. I visited Geelong once with my brother. Its about a 100 km (if my memory serves me correctly) drive from Melbourne and Geelong itself is a fairly small city. Come the worlds I think it will be seriously over crowded and it would be a VERY good idea to go with a company thats already started planning the event.
