The Cycle Friendly Business Program has been developed to:

Over 25,000 visitor cycle on the Trail each year.
Approximately $13 million spent by cyclists each year mostly in regional areas on accommodation, meals, fuel, track supplies, laundry and attractions.
An increasing number of tour operators are operating on the Trail and using local services.
Being cycle friendly is easy. Providing a warm welcome and facilities to refresh, refill, re-energise, repair and ride are the main aims – as well as providing a secure and well located bicycle storage facility!
