BEECHWORTH TO MILAWA RIDE 64kms or 32km
This ride offers two options – a longer, more challenging ride from Beechworth, freewhweeling down the rail trail to Everton Railway Station and thence to Milawa for a lazy lunch at Milawa Kitchen (http://www.milawacheese.com.au/cheesefactory/) before tackling the return route, half of which is a bit of an uphill slog from Everton. For those less inclined to over-exert themselves, you can meet riders at Everton and cycle the shorter and easier version from there to Milawa and return to your cars at Everton. (32kms). Only cyclists with roadworthy bikes may participate in this event.
