Cycle Central Goldfields Tour update

From tour leader Allan Marshall

So far there are about 14 interested in the Maryborough Rides. The tour will be on the 3rd-4th of October & leaving Friday evening.  We will be staying at the Laanecoorie Lakeside Park,   I have booked the 4 bedroom house & a Deluxe Ensuite Cabin & 2 Powered van sites. They have one of the best camp kitchens that I have seen & we may take advantage of it.  I should call the rides Cycle Central Goldfields.

Day one –Shuttle to Tarnagulla then bike tour around this old gold mining town, then bikes back on the trailer & go to Moliagul. We will bike around on 4 -5 KS of dirt Roads The home of the Welcome Stranger nugget & the Berth place of Dr Flynn the founder of the Flying Doctor service.Then we will bike it to Dunolly for lunch & a ride around this old gold mining town.  We will have lunch here  at the Bakery, who’ll stay open for us if we’re running late (as long as I let them know). After this we will ride to Bealiba its about here where my mother’s parents had 640 acres during the 2nd war I used to visit as a 4-5 year old but I can’t find the exact spot.  Tour around this old town,then bikes back on the trailer & head for Laanecoorie to freshen up.

Day 2 – Still a work in progress – I’ve decided the route, but I want to drive it first.  I will be showing some pictures & a talk at the AGM.
Good riding Allan Marshall

  1. I have decided that Maryborough is off the rides ,the Sunday car shuttle to Maldon on the bikes to Newstead then to Castlemaine lunch there & tour around,then back through Muckleford & back to Maldon & tour around. They say it is 40 K but I think it is more there is a smaller inner ride called Nuggetty Rd of 15K for those who don’t want to ride to Castlemane. I am hoping the riders will agree to taking their travelling gear in the cars so as we don’t have to go back to Laanecoorie.I plane to come home via Clunes so as they know what is in store for next year. It is a must to bring along your small camera,some of the things that are at the Caravan park is worth taking a picture of.
