5 fabulous days sampling some of the Victoria’s best wine and food offerings are yours to be enjoyed, and you get to ride your bike.
Following the success of our 2015 and 2016 Tours de Rutherglen we thought let’s do it again. We would love to have you join us in 2017. Bring your flat bar town bike or cruiser for an easy roll around the vineyards and valleys of Beechworth, Milawa and Rutherglen.
The region is famous for its fortified wines and in more recent times the full range of reds and whites and probably some in between. So bring your partners, bring your friends and join us as we ride, taste and eat our way around the region. The weather will be fabulous and you only need to take 2.5 days of leave to have all this pleasure.
As well as rides there will be walking options, town visits, coffee shops, restaurants and much more.
So here is what you get……
