Welcome to

UK POSTIE BIKE ADVENTURES

Ride the classic Aussie post bike
on a  Great British adventure!

The Honda CT110, or Aussie post bike as they're more affectionately known, is what I rode back from Australia on and then across America to Alaska. They're simple but tough little bikes that will practically go anywhere. They have four gears but no clutch, which take a little while to get used to but the patience is worthwhile. They allow the novice rider to go places they never would have imagined!

 

The fleet is eight bikes strong, with the other seven coming from Garbage Run Australia of 2019, when I guided 8 riders from Brisbane to Perth, straight through the heart of the Outback. At the end of that trip the bikes were sea freighted back to the UK, registered as UK bikes and put in action to take people on low speed adventures of the North Devon coast. 

The postie rides cover a mix of Tarmac and some gentle green lanes; green lanes being unsurfaced roads, sometimes muddy and sludgy but really showcase the best that North Devon has to offer. Along the way we'll stop for an icecream, take in the sights and have a proper little adventure.

Riders must be 21 years or older and hold a full A2 licence or above. They must wear appropriate protective clothing and accept the challenge of conquering the mighty 7bhp postie bike...
