This focus of this route is coastal riding and big views! It is an extension of the Bruny Island (North) route, but in the opposite direction. It includes a leg to Bruny Island (south) and Adventure Bay.
The route is significantly more road than gravel, but you will still want gravel tires for the gravel sector on South Bruny Island. We recommend avoiding this route during “silly season” and busy weekends. There is food available at Adventure Bay. By Captain “O”.

A go to loop for those living in the City. A gravel climb. Nice riding along the water front. And … a zippy descent. By Captain “O”.

Oatlands Circuit (Long)
This is an extended version of the Oatlands Circuit route. We have not ridden mile 28 to 50, but if they are as good as the rest of this circuit, this could be a 5 Star route. By Captain “O”.
Table Mountain Circuit
This is a route that we mapped, had some local intel on and investigated some, but we set wheel on less than 10% of the route. Feedback would be much appreciated. By Captain “O”.
