Best known for its heritage as a boom town during Victoria’s gold rush, Beechworth is enjoying growing popularity as a gourmet destination among northern Victoria's wine country. Collect your choice of regular bike or e-bike in central Beechworth midmorning, and get an explanation of the day’s itinerary before setting off on your own along the scenic Murray to Mountains Rail Trail.
Ride at your own pace along the 22-mile (35-km) route — of which 11 miles (18 km) are downhill, making for an easy, leisurely ride. Along the way, take a break and indulge your senses at several gourmet tasting stops like organic wineries, an olive farm and a mustard seed outlet. Soak up the friendly local atmosphere at a country pub, and refuel with a tasty platter lunch at a local cheese factory.
On-call support is available throughout the day should you need any assistance. When you reach the end of the route, vehicle transport will be waiting to shuttle you, your bike and any gourmet purchases back uphill to Beechworth, where the tour concludes with drop-off at your accommodations.
