Experience the incredible gravel backroads and tracks of Australia’s premier cycling destination, Victoria’s High Country. Why ride on the main roads when you can use the backroads to link the local towns, villages and producers in rewarding, diverse terrain?

This is gravel riding and bikepacking at its best – scenic, safe and challenging. Ride for a day or a whole week. Then when the ride’s over it’s time for a craft beer, gourmet meal or a special wine – you’re in one of Australia’s best food and drink destinations, after all.

Self-guided – Gravelmob has a range of free self-guided day loops around Beechworth that cater for all types of riders and range from 20-100 kilometres. All routes showcase the excellent gravel riding and quiet, scenic gravel riding of the region.

Guided – Let Gravelmob take your High Country gravel experience to the next level. Take advantage of their local knowledge of the best tracks and routes, plus some hidden secrets that you won’t find on the maps.

Gravel bike hire – Gravelmob has a small but mighty fleet of quality Bombtrack gravel bikes available for hire if you don’t BYO bike.

Bikepacking bag hire – Four of their bikes can be equipped with a full set of bikepacking bags. Load up and take off on a flashpacking or bikepacking adventure.

Ride the road less travelled and take on this full day privately guided adventure through the Mount Pilot National Park between Beechworth and Eldorado. You and your Gravelmob guide will ride excellent gravel roads through landscapes from the region’s 19th century gold rush, face challenges on the climbs and descents, pass hidden waterfalls and breathe in the fresh high country air, and you’ll hardly see a car all day.

The tour covers around 70 kilometres of quality gravel riding (90 percent gravel and tracks, 10 percent sealed backroads) and includes historic sites, Insta-worthy landscapes, traffic-free gravel roads and great coffee. Start the day with coffee at Gravelmob HQ at the Old Beechworth Gaol, fuel up with morning tea in Eldorado and finish things off in Beechworth with a post-ride pizza and pint at Beechworth’s well-known craft brewery, Bridge Road Brewers.

This half day guided gravel tour is a great introduction to the landscapes, food producers and gravel terrain between Beechworth and Stanley. It begins with a punchy little climb up to the fascinating Mayday Hills Asylum before crossing Stanley Road and following Pipeline Track to Lake Kerferd and Stanley village.

After an optional climb up part of Lady Newton Drive to Murmungee Lookout (worth it) we’ll stop for morning tea, then head through native bushland and pine plantations before ending the ride with a smooth tarmac descent back into town, where pizza and beer awaits at Bridge Road Brewers.
