The Great East Rail Trail Ride is a gentle journey on the 100 km East Gippsland Rail Trail. No traffic. Gentle hills. Forest, farmland and friendly country towns. Picnics by river, lake and vines. Optional Extra Sweat. Are you coming?
The Great East Rail Trail Ride is a fully supported three day cycle event along the 100 km East Gippsland Rail Trail. This is a little Great Ride, with numbers limited to 120 - to ensure a splendid time is had by all.
With a daily riding distance between 30 and 40 km (with Extra Sweat options provided for those who'd like to ride further) this Great Ride is fabulous for families, new cyclists, old cyclists and those for whom cycling simply fills the intervals between eating and drinking.
Rail Trails are for cyclists, walkers and horse riders only, so there will be no vehicular traffic along the route. Perfect for children and autophobes. (Extra Sweat Options may be on road).
We will provide you with all meals ( picnics, country pubs and fresh air brekkies); support along the route ( sag wagon, first aid, water, kind and helpful people); transfer your luggage each day, provide entertainment each night and at the end of the Trail, transport you and your bike back to the start point. We'll also provide campsite accommodation, with the option to upgrade to a cottage or pub, and if you don't have a suitable bike you can hire a bike for the tour.
