Local Bike Rides

Types of Rides

Rides are classified as:

Road Rides – on surfaced roads, suitable for road bikes, or

Gravel Rides – wholly or mainly on unmade roads, or marked tracks, and are suitable for gravel bikes, mountain bikes or hybrids.

Route Descriptions and Maps

There are downloadable route descriptions for all the rides listed. There are also digital maps (GPX format) to download to your portable device.

PDF maps are available for most rides. Thanks to CCM for most of the cartography. Any errors are the responsibility of Maldon Cycling.

Health & Safety

Once you are out of Maldon there are few facilities for water, food or toilets. Make sure you have adequate supplies of the first two, and spare tubes, pump etc. in case of a puncture. In Summer don’t forget the sunscreen.

Service & Repairs

If you need a bike service or repair undertaken there are no mechanics operating in Maldon. However there are two good bike shops in Castlemaine – The Bike Vault in Templeton Street and Giant Castlemaine in Hargraves Street. There are also a number of bike shops in Bendigo.

Starting Point

All rides start from the Maldon Post Office in High Street, on the corner of Francis Street. There is usually car parking nearby.

Note re Spelling

The official name of the mount to the west of Maldon is Tarrengower (Tarre…) but the district is Tarrangower (Tarra…). Please excuse any inconsistencies.
