You can start this selfguided bicycle tour any day. The first day is with an arrival day. St. Helens on the north-east coast acan bereached by coach from Launcsteon. The surroundings are stunning, like the famous Bay of Fires or the Peron sand Dunes. The first cycling day is fairly short to a country pub in the farming community of Pyengana. You can visit the 90m high, St. Columba falls and some very old mine machinery hidden in the forest. The following day is quite tough: you have to climb 500m in one go. You will stay in the small town of Branxholm.
Scottsdale is the next day's destination. We have deliberately kept this day short because the next one is quite exhausting. Today you have enough time to see the wood carvings at Legerwood and maybe do an excursion to the nice coastal town of Bridport. On the last cycling day of this section you have to wind steeply up the "sidling". Going down the other side, through dense forest, is pure pleasure. Your destination is the quiet, historic village of Evandale, just 3km (2m) from Launceston airport.
