The Great East Rail Trail Ride is a fully supported three-day cycle event along the 100 km East Gippsland Rail Trail. It ran for the first time in 2014, with the 7th event coming up in October 2022.
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 of 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 horseriders only, so there will be no vehicular traffic along the route. Perfect for children and autophobes. (Extra Sweat Options may be on-road).
You will be provided with all meals (picnics, country pubs and fresh air brekkies); support along the route (sag wagon, first aid, water, kind and helpful people); have your luggage transferred each day, and provided 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.
The ride is from September 30 – October 2 2022. Head here for more details & to book.
September 30 (Friday) - October 2 (Sunday)
