No matter the type of riding you love, there is the perfect trail, track or quiet road awaiting your adventure.
Originally known as the Great Dividing Trail, this is some of the most beautiful mountain biking and hiking in Victoria. A region steeped in history, youíll encounter forests, both natural and man-made, pastoral countryside and single track that in some places flow on grippy loam and in others jump and jag across roots, rock ledges and coarse sandstone. The Wallaby Track section will take you from Mt Buninyong through to Daylesford. This 90km track is for fit and confident riders and can be done in one day. Or for a more leisurely approach, the track has been broken into four sections: Mt Buninyong to Ballarat (20km), Ballarat to Creswick (25km), Creswick to Wombat Station (29km), Wombat Station to Daylesford (19km). goldfieldstrack.com.au
MACEDON REGIONAL PARK
The fire tracks on the side of Mt Macedon range from flat trails that are gentle enough to allow you to teach little kids to ride bikes (say in the Macedon Scout Camp area) to rocky, white-knuckle descents (such as Barberís Chute Track). These tracks are well drained and are a good option when it’s wet.
THE WOMBAT TRACK
The Wombat loop is 18km of well signed, well maintained, flowing single track in Woodend. Nothing too difficult, constantly undulating, no big hills. wombatmtb.com.au
Romsey to Lancefield and return. A leisurely 1 hour ride, this trail mostly travels along a dedicated shared path for cyclists and pedestrians. Enjoy expanses of rolling farmland, classic Australian architecture and treat yourself at one of Lancefield or Romseyís cafÈs or restaurants. Start and finish at the Lions Park Reserve, Romsey.
Three Town Scenic Route
(Woodend, Trentham, Kyneton)
This ride is a great opportunity to explore a large part of the region in a single loop that joins Woodend, Trentham and Kyneton. Great from either direction, this ride gives you open farmland, tree-lined country lanes and undulating leafy roads. Suggested start and finish, Woodend Train Station.
