A WEEKEND OF CHALLENGES AND REWARDS ON THE BIKE

Challenging climbs & quiet country roads – 130km ride on Saturday with 2000m evl through winding, quiet back country roads, followed by an 80km ride on Sunday with 900m of climbing, experiencing the pleasure of  rolling hills and wide open volcanic plains.

Escorted daily rides, led by an experienced Ride Guide – this is a riding adventure for men and women with an experienced level of riding. While challenging, we ride as a group, climb at our own pace and always regroup at the top.  So, if you’re up for a challenge, you’ll be right at home.

Comprehensive back up and support on all rides – rides are fully supported with a support vehicle, mechanic and your safety as our priority.

Lunch on the go – a gourmet picnic lunch on Saturday and home-made energy snacks along the rides

A FOOD, WINE & HOSPITALITY JOURNEY LIKE NO OTHER

Luxury villa accommodation – King or twin room suite with your own ensuite bathroom in a magnificent modern residence situated on the edge of Lake Daylesford – in fact, if we were any closer, we’d be getting our toes wet.  Each private suite has its own views, and with two beautiful lounge areas with open fires, lake views and a magnificent outdoor deck overlooking the water, this is the perfect place to escape the city and relax after a great day’s riding.

Authentic Italian welcome dinner, using all fresh, seasonal produce – featuring our own home made pasta and other seasonal, traditional delights

Full breakfast each morning – comprising of fresh fruit, muesli, yoghurt and other healthy morsels, and eggs cooked different ways by our in-house cooks.

A relaxed Tuscan-style dinner party –  on Saturday evening, including aperitivi, antipasti and Italian slow cooked porchetta as the main feature – sourced locally and cooked with traditional Italian methods, this rare-breed porchetta will be a taste sensation.

Fresh organic produce –  from local farms, award winning cheeses and hand-made salumi and cured products

Wines that celebrate – all that this great region has to offer, including organic cool climate varietals, handcrafted beers and ciders

Time Out – The chance to relax, enjoy a drink post ride and chat with likeminded people by the beautiful Lake, while taking in the peaceful surrounds

A closing Sunday lunch – to celebrate a weekend of awesome riding, quiet country roads, meeting new friends and enjoying the simple pleasures of a cycling life

About the food theme – A’QTO owners, Damian Hancock and Nancy De Losa love to cook and entertain so each weekend adventure involves a special food theme. This Weekend Escape focuses around quintessential Italian Porchetta, sourced locally in Daylesford and cooked to perfection by Damian, using traditional methods. Accompanied by fresh garden produce grown on the property where we are staying, along with Italian wines and local cheeses, this will be a food experience to remember. You will be delighted by Damian and Nancy’s personal selection of fine produce, their passion for cooking and making wonderful food from scratch, and the sharing of their Italian dining style.
