$ 1549

This 5 day/4 nights cycling tour in North East Victoria is for anyone wanting to cover all the major sights and gourmet delights in this increasingly popular cycling region.  Using the paved, largely flat, off road Murray to Mountains rail trail as the cycling path, you will taste the gourmet treats that abound in the north east Victoria region, as well as enjoy the incredible scenery and accessible, safe cycling paths.  Starting in Beechworth, you will cycle to Milawa, Myrtleford and Bright over 4 nights.

The Cycling
This tour has 3 days cycling covering the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail in almost it's entirety, a relatively easy 100kms with only 1 small and gentle uphill section on the second day.  The cycling is suitable for even novice or beginner riders, and we now have electric assist bikes available if you have any doubts!  The tour is fully supported with a van only a phone call away.

Being self guided, you are free to cycle as far and wide as you like.  Recommended routes and maps are provided but navigation is easy so you are free to roam!  There are plenty of lovely optional add on rides including around Beechworth on arrival day and from Bright before your departure transfers.

The Gourmet Treats
Our guests are often surprised at the quality of food and wine from the region.  Your tour includes restaurant meals in the evenings, platter style feasts for lunch and full breakfasts throughout (with the all imporant coffee - or tea!).  As a guest of Tour de Vines you will enjoy exclusive food and wine tastings (e.g. food and wine pairing at beautiful Gapsted Winery on Day 3).

Self Guiding
Self guided cycling tours do require participants to be adaptable and able to solve issues whilst on tour.  On call support is included in your tour, but it is expected that you will know how to repair punctures and make minor adjustments to gears, handlebars and seats if required, and if bringing your own bike then this is expected. For anything more serious, we will be able to assist with a call to our 1300 665 330 number at any time during your trip.  You should be able to read a map and follow directions, either on a device or a printed map (supplied) and that you have a good sense of direction.   Getting a little bit lost, or having to ask locals for directions is all part of choosing to travel on a self guided basis.  The maps and directions provided to you is updated regularly and tailored to your specific trip (hotels, restaurants are noted, and marked).  If this is something that makes your nervous or uncertain, or if you know for sure that you can’t fix a puncture or aren’t confident reading a map, then we do recommend our extensive range of small group fully guided tours where all the stress of navigation, bike maintenance and logistics are all done for you.  However, if comfortable with this then the freedom of a self guided cycling trip is wonderful, and once confident can be the preferred choice across our range of cycling tours. 

COVID Practices

  • All guests are provided with face masks to be worn when in common areas and on any bus transfers
  • All guests are provided with personal hand sanitiser for usage during the tour

A glorious 5 days - very easy cycling by pastures, vineyards, through forest (mostly on the rail trail or country roads with little traffic), great farm to table meals (Merlot in Milawa and Simone’s in Bright were outstanding), comfortable and friendly accommodations (all of them deserve 5 stars), wonderful wine and wineries (organic Pennyweight was our favorite) and pleasant farm gates (EV organic olive vineyard especially)"   Susan via Trip Advisor.  March 2022

"A great bike ride over 3 1/2 days, Vines organized accommodation and transported luggage.  The scenery was spectacular and just the right amount of riding.  The towns we stayed in were very good and the accommodation perfect."     Alan. Oct 2024
