Start at Beechworth 15km fun downhill run to Everton Station, then 27km to Wangaratta then 17km to Milawa
This is a gourmet food and wine area with lots of local food producers and wineries on the way.
Get picked up by our shuttle from one of the wineries and taken back to Beechworth which is a beautiful historic town with great cafes restaurants and a brewery
Next day after spending the morning exploring Beechworth you head off 15km down the hill again (it’s a good fun ride so doing it twice is not a problem)
then head 27 km up the valley to Myrtleford. Nice cafes, a couple of wineries on route and great Italian wood fired pizza at Bastoni. Visit the Red Ramia store, and Cafe Fez,
The next day you cycle 31km to Bright, maybe have breakfast at Lupo's Kiln Cafe 2km out of town. Just past The Happy Valley Hotel in Ovens is the must visit The Pumpkin Seed and Oil Store. If it's hot the ask us to point out a few 'secret swimming holes' on the Ovens River.
Next stop is the Berry Farm with it's fantastic ice creams and then onto Feathertop or Ringer Reef Wineries in Porepunkah which is also home to the iconic Rail Trail Cafe
Nearly there, it's now a beautiful 6km ride, more so in autumn, to the alpine gateway town of Bright.
We can pick you up in Bright and shuttle you back to Beechworth or Wangaratta
This is the same as the 3 day ride except you miss out on the day ride to Milawa.
With this trip you do day 1 of the 3 day ride, Beechworth to Milawa and then on day 2 we shuttle you to Myrtleford where you then ride on to Bright
These trips are ideal for those with less time or an ideal weekend ride.
