Riding High Cycling Tours

Riding High Cycling Tours commences in Bright, a quaint, yet thriving, town set at the foothills of Victoria's alpine resorts.

From Bright you make your way along the sealed trail to Porepunkah, then on to Ovens, followed by Myrtleford. With the unmistakable image of Mt Buffalo as your backdrop, you will find yourself cycling through some of the most spectacular Rail Trail country Australia has to offer.

After a look around Myrtleford it's back on the bikes for a short eight kilometre ride to Gapstead Winery, where you'll enjoy a break while treating your tastebuds to the delights of a Gapstead Gourmet Platter.

After lunch it is back on the Rail Trail for a 19 kilometre ride through the undulating hills to Everton Station. Here you'll be picked up by the Riding High bus for the short drive to Tarrawingee, where you will enjoy refreshments at the historic Plough Inn Hotel. An historic setting in which to finish a day of riding that you will never forget.
