Pack your gear, join a small group and hit the rail trails for a gourmet back country cycling adventure.

You will take in the delights of Northeastern Victoria’s remote, rural towns steeped in the history of Australian folklore. Staying in small, friendly places along the way, you’ll enjoy top quality regional cuisine and award winning wines. The trails are well established, and the gradients are kind, making it ideal for both experienced and not-so-experienced cyclists. It’s not a race, and the emphasis is on stopping to smell the roses – or rather to sample the wine, cheese or olive oil!

This is the land of vineyards, tobacco, hops, berries and bakeries; the abundance of local produce is just waiting to be sampled. Visit the historic town of Beechworth, the gourmet hub, Milawa in the King Valley and the alpine resort town of Bright. Enjoy exclusive wine tastings, farm gate visits and superb award-winning restaurants.

The second part of the ride is on the Great Victorian Rail Trail which winds its way between the country towns of Mansfield and Tallarook. Alongside the Goulburn River, the trail takes you through country towns and over Lake Eildon. You will cycle past some spectacular high country mountain scenery, rich farmland brimming with birdlife and magnificent stands of ancient red gums.
