The team from Cycling Tips rode the Mawson Trail in under a week. Watch their amazing video. (Scroll to the end of this article for the video). 

Bike SA has been running trips to the iconic Mawson Trail for the last ten years; we obviously can’t get enough.

For those that aren’t familiar, the Mawson Trail takes you on a 900km journey through the South Australian outback from Adelaide to Blinman. It offers some of the most stunning views you’ll see on a trail anywhere. Just look at this photo



Riding through mostly unsealed trail away from traffic with a bunch of mates, it really couldn’t get any better could it? Bike SA’s Outback Odyssey offers 16 days of views like this (or you can take up the 5,6 or 7 day options).


The guys from cycling tips decided to take things to the next level, and road the trail in just 6 days! Make sure you read their amazing article, which includes a day by day Strava route of their journey and the most stunning photos that we’ve ever seen of the trail.

People often forget the challenge that the Mawson Trail can throw at you – its not all sunshine and rainbows. One minute it’s nice and the next you’re bogged down in mud, but its all part of the fun. (Just think it could be worse, we’ve had someone complete the trail on a unicycle.)

Enough talking, and time to cast your eyes on the video below.

The next Outback Odyssey will take place on 6-21 May 2017. You can win a Mini Mawson experience for one person valued at $1230 by entering our competition and telling us in 50 words or less why you’d like to ride the Mawson Trail.
