Tour de Vines has an expanding range of Cycling Tours in Victoria (Australia). Victoria has the highest concentration of rail trails and off road paths in Australia perfect for cycling. The best of these is the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, an iconic cycle path in North East Victoria that travels directly through the wine regions of the King Valley, Alpine Valley, Milawa and Rutherglen. Starting in Rutherglen (the ‘Murray’) and travelling all the way to beautiful Bright (the ‘Mountains’), the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is over 120kms of paved trail, and this forms the basis for Tour de Vines cycling tours in Victoria.
As a bonus, being a southern state of Australia, Victoria also has a concentration of high quality wine regions (also great for gourmet treats!). Famous wine regions in Victoria include the King Valley, Alpine Valley and Milawa region in North East Victoria (including Rutherglen, Glenrowan and Beechworth areas), the Yarra Valley and Mornington Peninsula in the greater Melbourne region, as well as the lesser know Henty, Grampian, Pyrenees and Bendigo regions.
Victoria is also a cycle friendly state, with Melbourne possibly leading the way as a city in Australia in facilitating cycle use in the central business area, as well as many urban cycle lanes and paths. Melbournians like to ride a bike, and this extends to some incredible cycle trails across wine regions in Victoria.
