High Country Harvest Festival bike highlights


Victoria’s High Country Harvest Food & Wine Festival 2018 is back again, and the festivities kick off from 4 May and run until 20 May. This year’s program is positively jam-packed with activities, so we’ve rounded up a few that we reckon will whet any cyclist’s whistle.

And of course, visitors can always hire a bike locally and enjoy the festival by pedal.

Sunrises and Somberos

This evocatively-named trip along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail has a Mexican flavour. Journey on electric bikes to the Rail Trail Café for breakfast, stop off at Ringer Reef’s cellar door and cruise back to Bright. Bookings required.


Tweed Ride

Calling all chaps, dandies and bon vivants: get your fix of good food and wine at the Tweed Ride on 5 May. This 20-kilometre ride includes three stops to sit back and enjoy local produce.


Pedal and Taste

Held on 5 May and 19 May, Pedal and Taste is an easygoing tour starting and ending in Beechworth that includes lunch at Milawa Cheese Factory along with some special tastings along the way.


It doesn’t end there! For the full event program, check out highcountryharvest.com.au
