WHAT TO EXPECT
We split the day up into two riding sections. The first trails we ride are the Kurrajong Plantation Trails. These trails are mostly flat but allow us to build up our confidence as we twist and wind our way through this eucalyptus plantation. We then take a break for lunch before we pack the bikes up and move to the Stockyard Trails. Here is where we find our gravity assisted trails with smooth single track flowing down into the bottom of an old quarry highlighting the diversity of the You Yangs terrain. Of course what goes down must come up, but your guide will have a little trick up their sleeve to make sure you finish on a downhill before you finish up the tour and make the drive back to Melbourne.
