Cycling and Mountain Biking
The Beautiful Alpine Region |
The Alpine region is a cycling hotspot that draws mountain, road and both serious and hobby cyclists from around Australia. Bright and surrounds boasts over 100kms of off road rail trail that is the perfect way to explore the spectacular scenery of North East Victoria. The rail trail passes alongside many towns, and some amazing country pubs and wineries.
Bright is home to the new HERO mountain bike trail which begins at the top of Mystic Mountain and is located in the famous Mystic Park Mountain Bike Park. If mountain biking is your thing, there are hundreds of mountain bike trails in and around Bright and they’re a great way to explore the area.
Think you have to go to France for the perfect foodies holiday? Think again! It’s actually much closer to home than that.
