Mansfield and Surrounds

Ride Description

• Leave Mansfield along the Great Victorian Rail Trail and turn right onto Pikes Road. Enjoy this undulating gravel road through farming country, but watch for mud if it has rained recently;
• Carefully turn right onto the Midland Highway;
• Then take the first left onto the gravel of Long Lane;
• Turn left again at the next bitumen road (Mansfield-Whitfield Road) for about 3.5 kms;
• Turn right onto the gravel of Tabletop Road, just after crossing Bridge Creek. This is a steady gravel climb but has some steeper pinches halfway up. It is sealed again just before the top;
• Turn left onto Old Tolmie Road (careful on the descent, particularly the second right-hander);
• Go straight onto the gravel at the next intersection, don’t follow the tarmac to the left. This undulating track skirts around Tolmie;
• Turn left onto the Whitfield Road and enjoy the descent back to Mansfield.
