The route follows a railway line from a bygone era, and while it presents a challenge, it is a thoroughly enjoyable and pleasurable experience as we ride at a comfortable pace through the region.

The ride is fully supported by Victoria Police, local shires, the Rail Trail Committee, St John's, the Savoy Bocce Club and local businesses.

This ride also includes an AFL training session and BBQ with The Myrtleford Alpine Saints Football Netball Club team.
