The Top 10 of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail

Cycling the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail

So, what is the top 10 of the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail.  Our founder and experienced tour guide Damian Cerini gives his top 10:

  1.  The scenery.  The Alpine region is stunning and particularly in spring and autumn when the leaves are out and the sun is golden, it’s just magic.
  2.  The people, being country Australia what would you expect!  There is certainly a ‘non city’ feel about the towns we ride through and the people we meet.
  3.  The rail trail itself is fantastic, very well laid out, all off road so completely stress free, and it follows a terrific route.  Best of all, it’s mainly flat, so it’s easy to ride.
  4.  The current and growing gourmet delights of the region.  Tasting fresh Harriet trout on a lemon dill bread, with a local Pinot Gris on a sunny afternoon is something to be savored. And there are secrets spots too.
  5.  It’s within easy distance to Melbourne, with plenty to do over 2 days/nights and lots of time to be back Sunday evening ready for the week ahead.  Whilst a 7 hour drive from Sydney, it’s still worth it.
  6.  Both Gapsted Winery and Boynton’s Winery on a sunny afternoon.  Impossible to split these two, and very hard – no impossible – to leave these gorgeous cellar doors. I love it and everyone I bring here does too.  Great food, wine & scenery.
  7.  Riding into Bright in Autumn, and the amazing colours with the Snowy River along your side, with a brief stop at the Rail Trail cafe for a late afternoon organic cake and coffee.  Gold.
  8.  Beechworth Bakery for breakfast.  A favourite of mine…the jam donuts, not so healthy but how can you say no?
  9.  The guiltlessness that normally accompanies eating and drinking such amazing gourmet treasures, knowing you are riding off all those calories (in theory anyway!)
  10. The End!   I know that sounds odd but finishing the ride along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail brings a real sense of satisfaction, and the feeling that you have used wisely every bit of your weekend.
