RideADV - I Ride ADVYamaha Logo

RideADV.com.au is proud to announce the next ride in the Yamaha Australia supported “B2B” (Bridge to Bridge) series. The Bridge to Bridge events pay homage to the father of ADV Riding in Australia, Tony Kirby. The 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020 and 2022 B2B’s, were all great rides and are still talked about by many of our RideADV customers, as the best ADV ride they have ever experienced.

RideADV is the most experienced off-road tour company joining the capital cities on the east coast of Australia now for the last 10 years. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, as our competitors have now started copying the format.

So, in keeping with our mission to provide great Rider value for our friends and customers, and meeting the requests of the mob……….. B2B #6 will be from Melbourne to Sydney.

In One adventure, you’ll treat ALL your senses to the Best of what the VIC High Country and NSW Great Dividing Range has to offer! Join the RideADV team as we criss-cross this magnificent, naturally occurring phenomenon. Starting at the Westgate Bridge in Melbourne and finishing 7 days later at the Harbour Bridge Sydney.

We’ll see the best the VIC High Country has to offer including Craig’s Hut, Blue Rag and more. Later in the event you will find yourself riding through Pristine valley floors, fertile farmland and winding country tracks. Not to mention riding through the iconic tracks in NSW after leaving the VIC high country. Not only will we be seeing the best of this beautiful country we live in, but we’ll be pouring some desperately needed funds into the numerous country towns we’ll be passing through and staying in!

Book your Place NOW! Avoid disappointment, because this ride traditionally sells out very quickly!

Plan for Pub, Motel and/or camping style accommodation. It is a full navigation event with a luggage/gear truck and the usual array of fully equipped support vehicles with experienced drivers.

Hell, it’s still Your Ride Your Adventure…

We just want to help you enjoy it and we’ll be doing our best to keep you on track and get you safely home with amazing memories to lock away forever.
Routes will be planned for each day with a “Standard” route suitable for larger bikes and those riders wanting spectacular scenery but with a less technical feel; and of course a “Special” more technical route suitable for riders on smaller bore bikes or competent riders on larger bore bikes and those generally wanting a little more spice on the ride. With all RideADV rides, you can change between standard and special routes each night if you wish, just to make it interesting or to give you some breathing space.

Both routes will have medically and mechanically trained sweep crew and vehicle support.

So come and join us for the 2024 B2B featuring the best of the VIC and NSW has to offer. From Forests & Ocean views, Tablelands & the edge of the central west of NSW… finishing at the very impressive Harbour Bridge in Sydney… this ride has it all.

*****We will be offering a bike transport service from Central Coast, Sydney and Mittagong in the two weeks prior to the event. Cost $430 bike and gear bag, email info@rideadv.com.au to book and place and arrange payment.******
