Blue Metal

Graveleur, in partnership with Blue Metal Cycling are canvassing for expressions of interest from any cyclist who’d like to join a Gravel tour of North Western Tasmania.

Email us at and put “Blue Metal” in the subject line if you are interested.

In particular tell us how you feel about the following or if we can design something better suited to what you and your mates prefer:

Cost: The cost would be around $2,200 for a 5 day tour. This is a premium tour inclusive of all airport transfers, meals, ride support, accommodation. Not included is your return flight to Launceston and alcohol. Meals in particular are designed to take advantage of local fine produce and will be very high quality.

Dates: 17 – 21 October 2022

17 Oct: pick up from airport/city then travel to start point and ride to Derby.

18- 20 October: Day rides, out from Derby including a lap of Ben Lemond

21 Oct: morning ride and return to airport/city in afternoon

Group: We can accommodate 7-12 riders. Get some mates together and tell us who’s coming

Where/What: The day rides would be about 70km and 1200vm but can be extended for stronger riders. No one get’s left behind, but equally important, no one is expected to stand around waiting. All abilities catered to. If you think Derby is good for MTB, you haven’t seen anything till you sample some of the gravel roads available in that region.

We’re excited to be able to bring this to you and hope to hear from you about what you’d like to see cycling in Tasmania.
