Test your skills and fitness as you embark on this full day mountain biking adventure. Your ride through the Wombat State Forest will have you weaving through trees before fuelling up at the Holgate Brewhouse for lunch. Take it easy on the beers though as your riding adventure does not stop here!
Enjoy a fantastic day out in the sun and fresh country air on this full day mountain bike tour from Melbourne. Set for Woodend, weave your way through the handmade trails in the Wombat State Forest on an easy circuit with a few challenges along the way. This trail is approximately 17km long and will take you around two hours to complete. You will then arrive at the award-winning Holgate Brewery for a well-earned lunch. The Brewery offers an excellent range of beer that is brewed on-site and scrumptious food to fuel your body for the ride ahead. Be mindful of how much beer you have as the best riding is yet to come!
Jump back on your bikes and head up the Calder Highway for 35 minutes before you reach the township of Harcourt, just outside Bendigo. You’ll be amazed at how much work has gone into the green, blue and black trails that stretch for 34km. These trails are designed to test your skills and fitness whilst boasting spectacular views. You will spend some time riding through the trails here or for groups of less experienced riders, you can ride on easier handmade trails closer to Bendigo. After an adventurous couple of hours, you will return back to Melbourne. Although exhausted, you will have had an epic day that you’ll want to rave about to family and friends!
