  • Instruction session for those new to electric bikes

After meeting your friendly guide and arriving at the start of the tour, you will be fitted up with a bike and helmet and instructed on how to operate your electric bike. Your guide will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the bikes and how they work. You'll then head off at a leisurely pace along the 14km (return) section of the Aqueduct trail taking in local history, spectacular views and the fresh mountain air. You can pedal along if you wish or just let the electric motor do the work for you.

Much of the infrastructure of the old aqueduct is clearly visible along the way. The mountain ash forest is home to many species of wildlife so keep an eye out for that lyrebird darting accross the trail or that wombat browsing trackside. The cool clear waters of the local streams encountered along the way are a great way to cool down,especially on the warmer days. After completing the main trail section, you'll drop into Warburton for a coffee and bite to eat followed by a quick wander down the main street. Finally, you'll ride along the Warby-Lilydale rail trail to Millgrove to complete the tour.
