The tour starts with a pick up in central Melbourne, or you can meet the group at the starting point in Yering. It’s about a 1-hour transfer to the start of the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail. You can BYO bike or hire a new Trek hybrid bike or an e-bike, perfect for a day on this trail. The scheduled cycling is 30-40kms depending on the pace of the group and is classified as easy. There are no hills, the cycling is generally flat and is great fun. As transport is included, you can enjoy cycling one way on the rail trail without having to double back. The riding is suitable for children who can manage to cycle for 1 to 2 hours.
When the cycling is done, you will be taken to at least 2 lesser-known cellar doors for wine tastings. If time permits, you may also visit Yarra Valley Dairy or Yarra Valley Chocolaterie on the way back to Melbourne.
Admire the stunning scenery of the Yarra Valley ranges and cycle your way around the famous artisan producers in the region. Relax, enjoy the cycling, taste the wines, meet new friends or bring a group and have fun on this great day out.
