WHAT IS THE MENTAL WHEELS TOUR IN 2019?
The definition of the word ‘Mental’ – ‘as it relates to the total emotional and intellectual response of an individual to external reality’.
Over 3 days the Tour will cover more than 350km:
We ride incredible roads with great sights including the picturesque Kangaroo Valley, Jervis Bay & the Southern Highlands.
With a epic decent from the Southern Highlands and a view to match we then complete the Tour at our finish point in the iconic town of Kiama!
