This is approximately a 60km cycle, passing over the Kiewa River, through the old train stops of Bonegilla and Ebden. After a break at Ludlows Reserve, picking up new riders we continue cycling along side the Hume Weir, crossing the Weir over an old bridge and lunch at Tallangatta. You’ll have the option of buying your lunch in town (and meeting back again at a certain time) or bring your own lunch and join me at the foreshore park.

After lunch retracing our tyre tracks we will return to our cars at Ludlows Reserve or onto Whytes Road parking area,

This trail has a mix of bitumen and well compacted gravel surfaces so a hybrid or mountain bike with wider tyres would make your ride more comfortable. However I’ll likely give it a go (and hopefully not regret it!) on a road bike with gaterskin tyres.

There is water along the way, please bring snacks and lunch (if applicable). Cyclists must have a roadworthy bike, puncture repair kit and spare tube.

Ride A: 60km ride – Park our cars and cycle from the Whytes Road rail trail parking area, full distance to Tallangatta and return to Whytes rail car park. (leaving 9.00am)

Ride B: 40km ride – Meet longer distant riders at Ludlows Reserve (be ready for us to get to you around 9:30-9:45am) and ride to Tallangatta and return to Ludlows Reserve.
