I didn't take my bike but borrowed a friends. The trail is an easy flat ride on bitumen, I did 20 KM on the first day and 16 on the second to Wandiligong which was a bit more undulating. Highly recommend.

My husband and I rode the Bright-Porepunkah portion of the trail and loved it! A nice gentle ride that took about 75 minutes return (with a good pit stop). Lots of rest stops along the way should you need to have a break. The track...More
