Murray to Mountains Cycling – Pedal & Pamper
It’s a long tour title we know, but it aptly describes this fantastic cycling tour. A combination of easy, safe and supported cycling on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, accommodation for 2 nights, and food & wine tastings, tutorials and experiences in the increasingly popular gourmet hub of north east Victoria.
The tour uses the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail cycling trail from Beechworth to Bright over 2 days, cycling a total distance of 72kms. Don’t be daunted by that number, the vast majority of the trail from Beechworth is flat, or downhill and with numerous food and wine stops just about anyone can complete the riding comfortably. In fact we are yet to have a ‘sag wagon’ (support bus) pick up, but that’s always an option for you. And we visit the best cellar doors in the region, and Gourmet Traveller agrees (see our blog post Australia’s best cellar doors)
This self guided cycling tour which means you are free to cycle at your own pace, stop where and when you want, linger for an extra tasting at a cellar door or stop to take even more photos of the beautiful Alpine Valley on the Murray to Mountains cycling trail. We do all the work for you however, including all accommodation and meal bookings, luggage transfers, bikes if needed are all provided and done for you. We will even pick up all that food and wine you can’t resist buying along the way.
This Murray to Mountains Cycling tour can be enjoyed any day or date of the year (subject to accommodation availability of course). So pick a date, grab your partner or friends, and enjoy this wonderful escape in North East Victoria.
