Overview

This independent Roxburgh Clutha Deluxe cycle adventure is a 3 day/2 night tour on the Roxburgh Gorge and Clutha Gold Cycle Trails. Cycling on a vehicle free trail with a moderate gradient approximately 25-40kms per day. The Roxburgh Gorge Trail is quite a bit steeper than the Rail Trail therefore be prepared for some climbs and downhill’s. (The entire trail is able to be ridden but in some cases, for those not comfortable or experienced to riding hills the option of pushing some of the steeper sections is advisable.) The trail is wide and has a great surface. You will experience amazing scenery whilst travelling through remote gorges, lush farmland and following the majestic Clutha River. Stay in deluxe twin/double share accommodation at Roxburgh and Beaumont. Cyclists will also experience wonderful local cuisine and meet colourful local people.
