As part of the Bendigo Men’s Health Week activities, a Ride for Dad – Spring in the Bendigo Bush 2014 event will have you, family and friends riding the O’Keefe Rail Trail on Saturday 6th September. The registration start/finish point will be at Peppercorn Park, 95 Longlea Lane, Longlea.

Two routes along the O’Keefe Rail Trail will be on offer –

  • Longlea to Axedale River Reserve and return to the start/finish point at Peppercorn Park (18kms)

Along the way, you can experience upgraded sections of rail trail, see recreated platform and station signs, ride through natural bushland and blooming wattles, watch for and hear local wildlife, ride across creeks via trail bridges, see the new Axedale ‘tunnel’, take a selfie photo with the new platypus sculpture at Campaspe River Reserve Axedale, and much more!
