Online Off Road Tours On The Move

20 April 2010 - Honda backed Online Off Road Tours has moved its base of operaitons from Yackandandah to Nungurner, near Lakes Entrance in Victoria’s East Gippsland.

The new property has plenty of room to move, and being located only 450 metres from the local forest, provides a perfect place from which to run an adventure tour operation.

The venue is well placed for riding, providing good local opportunities, as well as easy access to the great trails offered by the southern side of the Victorian Alps.

Tour operator Rod Lay says he now has access to some exciting new remote areas and plans to include several new tours into their calendar, as well as continuing with their iconic tours such as the “Tom Groggin” and Mt Buller.

“The customers and our crew both love the long running signature events, and despite the extra travel required for us now, I can’t bring myself to drop them as they are so much fun,” Rod said.

‘The Blast to the Beach in May is our first five day adventure, and it already looks as though it will become an annual epic trek. The track variation and quality is almost unheard of and will keep any rider happy.”

A full run down of the Blast will feature in Trailrider Magazine later this year, with editor Stephen Tuff coming along for the ride.

“Now that I have access to the wilderness that is far East Gippsland, we have other possibilities for more multi day adventure tours and are looking as far as the south coast of NSW as destinations where we can also include more deep sea charter boat fishing,” Rod added.

Anyone who missed out on the Blast to the Beach, which was full after only one week of advertising, should make a note for the planned event next April.

Online Off Road Tours will also continue to be involved in running the Yackandandah Charity Bash, the successful must – do ride held every August, which last year saw $20,000 raised for local charity.

In addition to running the tours, Rod’s partnership with the Department of Sustainability and Environment is growing with more stories to feature on MXTV featuring the DSE themed ‘Ride for Tomorrow’ which promotes environmentally sustainable trail bike use.

There are only a few vacancies left for the majority of the 2010 tours, and Rod is now busy working on the 2011 calendar.
