Riding Ability

Cape York Motorcycle Adventures has been operating since 1990. Tour guide and owner, Roy Kunda knows every trail in the region and has taken riders of all ability from backpacker novices to world motorcycle champions. He has shared this knowledge with every tour guide on staff.

If you are licensed for a motorcycle (a learner permit is sufficient), and are competent in traffic, have courage and confidence to try new styles then you will be fine to ride. The tours are matched to suit the ability of riders. Our tour guides are there to help you along the way whether that is to teach you a new technique or challenge the skills you have. Riding in a group with the comfort of a support vehicle means every contingency from a flat tyre to a drowned bike will be looked after. CYMCA is an all-inclusive company offering equal access to people with a disability. Our support vehicle has a spare seat for those who cannot ride.

Almost every type of off-road condition will be encountered, except snow!
