Victoria on two wheels: five great regional bike rides
Make a bike trip part of your next Victorian holiday and see a new side to the state.
If you’re an urban cyclist eager to take your bicycle on new adventures or just keen to enjoy the slower road, exploring Victoria on two wheels is one of the best ways to really get to know the state.
Experienced riders can tackle mountain peaks, off-road challenges and road traffic, but If you’re a new rider or just a bit hesitant to hit the open road, there are more than 40 Victorian rail trails listed on Rail Trails Australia, each offering a smooth, safe ride on flat, offroad bike paths through some of the state’s prettiest scenery, whether you’re looking for quiet country back roads, coastal trails, mountain scenery or native forests. And, with bike hire widely available, you don’t even need to bring your own gear.
