Nomads Outdoors Group – High Country Cycling: Wodonga – Tallangatta – Shelley – Yackandandah – Wangaratta

October 13, 2023 - October 17, 2023

Enjoy an extended, scenic cycling tour on the High Country Rail Trail between Wodonga and Shelley (formerly Victoria’s highest railway station), the brand new Osbornes Flat to Beechworth Rail Trail, part of the Mountains to the Murray Rail Trail between Beechworth and Wangaratta, as well as some scenic roads from Huon via Tangambalanga and Kiewa to Osbornes Flat. If you have limited annual leave available, it will be possible to join on Saturday 14 October, and/or to exit the tour on Monday 16 October. ** Maximum 10 attendees **

GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Medium to hard grade cycling of between 40 and 63 km per day. There will be wildly varying surfaces encountered, including a bone-jarring, unsealed section near Shelley, sealed and unsealed rail trails, and some on-road sections, including about 4 km on a relatively busy highway.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: This trip is designed to be accessed via public transport, but if you prefer you can drive to Wodonga, carrying your bike on your vehicle. The group will aim to catch an early train departing from Southern Cross Station at 7:07am on Friday, arriving in Wodonga at 10:27am. If you can’t manage that, or we can’t get all our bikes on the early train, there are alternative options for catching trains on Friday (departing from Southern Cross at 12:04pm, arriving in Wodonga at 3:24pm or departing at 6:02pm, arriving in Wodonga at 9:22pm), or to catch the Saturday train departing at 7:07am.
