Melbourne Breakout Cycle Tour
The Melbourne Breakout Cycle Tour starts right in Melbourne at the iconic Princes Pier. You cycle out along Beach Road, the local Melbourne cycling Mecca, on cycle paths and enjoy the view of Port Phillip Bay. Your cycle will take you across the Mornington Peninsula, over the bay on the ferry and right into the heart of Phillip Island at Cowes. Then its off to cycle through Gippsland, along the wild coasts, through the farming country, the old country towns and the fabulous back country, sealed roads that are perfect for cycling. The old township of Loch features a whisky distillery and craft brewery, amongst the old buildings. A day on the rail trail will be a journey through history with beaut little villages, each with their own distinct flavor. The hamlet of Inverloch is set right on the beach with lots of spots to watch the sunset. Your final day will take you along the Bunurong cliffs with many bays and coves to explore. The scenery is truly magic!
