Feel the excitement as we navigate through Coffs Harbour's countryside, where surprises await at every turn. Explore Glen Innes and Grafton's winding dirt roads, each one leading to hidden gems and breathtaking vistas waiting to be discovered.


Our route will take us via dirt roads to Glen Innes, where we will spend the night, before returning to Coffs Harbour the following day via a different route. Experience the breathtaking views of the region's epic dirt roads, including the spectacular Grafton tunnel, and enjoy the thrill of some fantastic riding along the way.


Expect dust and dirt and enjoy the comfort of a backup vehicle for support in case of any issues. We will carry your pub clothes and luggage for you, as well as basic tools to assist with any running repairs.


Immerse yourself in the charm of the surrounding farmlands, where the tranquillity of rural life meets the adrenaline rush of off-road exploration.


At the helm of this exhilarating journey is none other than Motorcycle World Champion Alex Cudlin, our expert guide who brings a wealth of experience to ensure an unforgettable ride.

Alex Cudlin will lead the pack, offering valuable insights and pro tips to enhance your riding skills.


Rest assured, every road on this adventure is a council-gazetted road, eliminating the need for single tracks or jumps.


Our commitment to safety and enjoyment is paramount. Any medium to large size Adventure bike is suitable for this trip.


Given the popularity of these events, tickets sell out rapidly, so secure your spot for this escapade now!


Only 30 spots will be available. As we embark on this extraordinary ride, our team is meticulously organized to enhance your experience.


Picture this: a guide at the front, ensuring you stay on course; a mid-sweep rider, maintaining the group's cohesion; a rear sweep rider, ensuring no one is left behind; a backup vehicle ready to carry all your essentials; and a trailer, standing by to transport your bike to the overnight stop in case of any mechanical troubles.


A qualified motorcycle mechanic will be available to assist in getting you back on the road if possible after a breakdown.


No need to worry about the complexities of navigation, as "Banana Blitz" operates on a "Corner Man" System. (We will explain this to you on the event)


No need to invest in expensive GPS units as required by most adventure companies – we've got you covered, making navigation a breeze and enjoying the ride without breaking your wallet.


After a day of conquering thrilling terrain, we'll rest our weary heads in Glen Innes. The New England countryside around Glen Innes is lush – all rolling green fields and World Heritage-listed forest. If you didn’t know better, you’d swear you were in the Scottish Highlands.

This serves as the perfect backdrop for unwinding, sharing tales of the day's adventure, and preparing for the excitement that awaits on day two.
