Exchange a nod with passing cyclists as you cruise regional bike tracks and trails. Stumble on sights unseen from the highways, and fill your basket with gourmet treats from small producers. Sit a while on riverbanks and seashores and experience a car free idyll.
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.
Breathe fresh country air, cruise through changing landscapes and learn local history on a journey along 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, horseback or two wheels, these trails provide a great opportunity to explore the region at your own pace.
Victoria's rail trails cater for all ages and abilities. 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 are sealed and can take touring bikes too.
