Warburton Mountain Bike Destination Project

Warburton Mountain Bike Destination Project

Yarra Ranges Council along with Parks Victoria, Dept. Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Melbourne Water, and Vic Roads are seeking input on their upcoming Warbuton Mountain Bike project. The project will be building a trail network within the Yarra Valley which is 90km east of the Melbourne CBD.

Warburton is set to become one of Australia’s premier mountain bike destinations with planning well underway for approximately 160 kilometres of trail in the surrounding area. The project is now at the Master Planning stage which includes a detailed assessment of potential alignments and impact assessments.

Consultation with adjacent land owners has been conducted during May and June. The public are invited to contribute to this project by providing input into the trail alignment, the mix of trail grading and supporting facilities and services.

This project is being coordinated by a partnership comprising of Yarra Ranges Council, Parks Victoria, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Melbourne Water and Vic Roads.

GoGIRL Glasshouse Mountains Ride Summary – 29/04/2017

GoGIRL Glasshouse Mountains Ride Summary – 29/04/2017

Autumn is finally here and we had perfect riding conditions for our latest goGIRL ride. Yahoo! Last month was cancelled due to wet conditions formed by cyclone Debbie so we were keen to follow Kerrie out of the Glasshouse Sports ground and along the fire trail into the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains area.

First we rode beside Steve Erwin Way to Matthew Flinders Rest Area, then along Farm Track to visit Jack. After Smashing the Rocks where all the girls expertly rode uphill, we gasped at the majestic views, left the Caves and Marshes and had a snack on a log. The girls dared me to ride it. It was over a metre high but it had no good exit strategy. A heli ride out of there would have made a good story but I decided to made a detour through Avocado farm instead. After zipping Downhill Fireroad, we got a view of Tibbro before crossing the creek with its own name. Climbing up the rock slabs was fun, then back past Mathew Flinders, Coonowrin Creek and under the M1, safely back to the carpark. The Boys were back too. (We never make a time but mostly they always know when we are finished). I wonder if you hear chatter and laughter on their ride as well. Finally it’s time to swap stories as we head to the local Glasshouse bakery to enjoy each other’s company as well as bakery treats, wraps, frappes and well earned coffee.
