Hi everyone - I'm planning a small group charity ride with friends from Melbourne to Sydney in October 2015. I'm thinking the trip will be over 9 straight days and circa 150km/day. The group is likely to contain cyclists of all levels, ages and sizes and we'll be fully supported by a van or two so my questions for you all are:

Has anyone else ever done this trip, or knows anyone that has?
What is the best and safest route that doesn't involve going over the mountains? Coastal or in land, and does anyone know a good 'cycle safe' route planning tool?
Do you have any advice, tips or suggestions on how to go about planning this?
What would be your single, must have item with you at all times whilst on the bike?

Thanks heaps in advance for all your help and advice.
Mark (aka Tubs)

This was a nice ride, but may not fit your criteria, and you might find bits of this useful.

Audax have this route as a Raid, http://www.audax.org.au/public/index.php/other-audax-rides/raids?id=72

Thanks Guys - Has anyone done the full coastal route?

My initial thoughts were:

Opera House  - Nowra - Batemans Bay - Eden - Bairnsdale - Foster - Phillip Island - Flinders Sqaure

But not sure on what the roads are like in both quality and cycling safe?
