We'll be riding the Leanganook Track in reverse of the description on this page, and staying overnight at Harcourt.

Optional Friday: to avoid the early train you could get to Bendigo on Friday night and stay at eg Bendigo Backpackers (has individual rooms) or other hotels eg Brougham Arms Hotel.

Saturday: the early morning train leaves southern cross at 7.40am and arrives at Bendigo at 10am. BYO lunch and snacks and lots of water for a demanding 40km mostly uphill ride.
Arriving in Harcourt when we get there; Book your accom at Tread (pretty much the only option) which is especially developed for cyclists: https://www.treadharcourt.com.au/accommodation

Sunday: Spend a few hours to breakfast in Harcourt, and explore the local area and its new extensive mountain bike track, then we'll head off around 10am to ride the last 20km to Castlemaine for lunch and the train trip home (or back to Bendigo if you drove).

NB: "As you can see from the elevation map below, there are some climbs and descents to tackle, so RIDERS WILL NEED TO BE REASONABLY FIT AND SKILLED."

No daylight saving so dusk is at 5.44pm.
Tread: "If cancelled within 7 days of your nominated arrival no refund will be made. In the event of a 'no-show' refunds will not be issued.
Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to cancel or amend your booking."
Let's hope the weather is good !!
