Linking central Victoria via the old railway line

Social Ride with Friends

A night ride on bikes was the attraction for members of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail group, their first social ride for 2023. This was a late afternoon and evening activity, in fairly hot conditions, riding from Spring Gully to the Botanical Hotel in White Hills for dinner. The planned ride route was along Bendigo’s off-road urban trails, completely bypassing streets and motor vehicle traffic.

Riders brief stop-over at the Gardens of the Future

Once dinner was finished, it was back on the bikes to explore some of Larni Garingilang, Gardens of the Future, with this area’s recently completed new garden section incorporating an indigenous focus, gathering and educational spaces, plus wetlands and ponds.

The riders then continued to retrace their route along the Bendigo Creek Trail, the Back Creek Trail and the Spring Gully Trail. This ‘Last Wednesday of the Month’ social ride was enjoyed by all, although completed before darkness fell and the need to be guided by bike lights! The next member’s social ride will be on Wednesday 22 February.
