Itinerary 1 - On your bike
We'll meet you in Port Melbourne or St Kilda and we'll get you set up on your bike. Our first stop is Albert Park, home of the F1 Grand Prix, for a lap around the lake. From there we'll continue our tour of the best parks and gardens in Melbourne, including the MCG, the Botanical Gardens and Melbourne Park.
Itinerary 2 - Get your sea legs
The bay. The beach. Whatever you call it, that’s where we’re headed to next. Our exact location depends on the wind and the tides, because stand up paddling is on the cards. New to SUP? We all were once. We’ll give you some pointers to find your sea legs.
Itinerary 3 - Beer o'clock
That's your exercise done for the day, so now it's time to relax and drink some tasty, tasty beer. We'll take you to our favourite local brewery where you can sample some of the finest craft beer on offer while chatting to your fellow travellers. It might be the end of this adventure, but it could be the start of a brand new friendship.
