Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore rail trail

Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Spring in the Bendigo Bush rides the rail trail

Ever wanted to ride the rail trail and Wellsford Forest, but lacked company? Well, join us for a guided tour on Saturday 2 October. We’ll follow the existing trail to Axedale and return through the Wellsford forest as part of this year’s Spring in the Bendigo bush. Enthusiasts will talk about the railway’s history and the plans for the upgrade and extension and guide you through the maze of tracks in the Wellsford on the way back.

It’s around 50 km, so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness and a properly maintained hybrid or mountain bike. Limited places, so please register here. We’ll confirm your place with you at least one week before the ride.

Date: Saturday 2 October
Time: 8.45 am for a 9.00 am start. Finish about 3.00 pm
Meeting place and details about the ride will be advised after registration.

If you have any questions about the ride, phone Greg Ralton on 0419 290 966.

Last year's ride was quickly over-subscribed. In spite of showers threatening, everyone enjoyed the day.
