Cycling trails

Approach Victoria's diverse regions from exceptional perspectives as you cycle in on purpose-built bike trails.

The best things in life on a bike
Exchange knowing nods with passing cyclists as you cruise regional bike tracks and trails. Stumble upon sights unseen from the highways, and fill your basket with gourmet treats from small producers. Sit a while on riverbanks and seashores and generally experience a forgotten idyll.

The other side to Melbourne
Melbourne's a seriously bike-friendly city, boasting bike lanes and paths plus a number of trails around the CBD. Travel along the river past bush and billabongs, via major landmarks and always near a pit-stop for refreshments, Melbourne-style.

Tales from the rail trails
Breathe in the fresh country air, cruise through changing landscapes and learn about local history on a journey down one of Victoria’s many rail trails. What was once a network of lightly constructed railways used for logging is now a web of scenic rail trails criss-crossing the state. Whether you're travelling on foot, on horseback or on two wheels, these trails provide a great opportunity to explore the region at your own pace.

Victoria's collection of rail trails caters for all ages and fitness levels. From steep climbs to flat rides, there are plenty of options to choose from. Most trails are surfaced with gravel or dirt and are perfect for walking, mountain bikes and horses. Some sections of the trails are sealed and can be navigated by touring bikes too. Check the rail trails website for specific terrain information.
