This tour uses the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail cycling trail from Beechworth to Bright over three days, cycling a total distance of 72 km (45 mi). Don’t be daunted by that number; the vast majority of the trail from Beechworth is flat or downhill, with numerous food and wine stops. Just about anyone can complete the riding comfortably.

This is a 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.  All the work has been done for you, including all accommodation and meal bookings, luggage transfers, and bikes if needed. The tour operator 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. This tour is also available, on selected weekends, as a guided tour; click here if you are interested in that option.

* Accommodation can book out for peak holiday and long weekend dates so it’s wise to book any preferred dates early. There is a $50pp surcharge for tours that include any Victorian public holiday dates.

**Please note that the tour price given is the ‘from’ price – rates may vary depending on the dates chosen.
