Thanks everyone. Happy Bromptoneering!
On the Saturday of this year’s Queen’s Birthday long weekend (i.e. THIS coming Saturday!) we are riding part of the Warburton Rail Trail (“WRT”). The broad-gauge railway line closed in 1965, but thankfully the route is open to cyclists, walkers and horseriders as a rail trail, allowing us to discover the history and beauty of this section of the Yarra Valley.
While it is certainly possible to ride the whole trail in one day (it’s 40km from Lilydale to Warburton), we’re not out to accomplish that feat on this ride. Our pace will, as usual, be determined by slowest members of the group so that everyone enjoys themselves and no one feels left behind.
A rough itinerary of the day is as follows:
Meeting point: Lilydale Train Station, Lilydale
Meeting time: 10:30am
Options to get to Lilydale Train Station
- Drive to Lilydale Train Station; or
- Catch a direct train from Southern Cross Station (9:09am, Platform 10)…
