"Hi Merv, Send me a copy of the Ride On article. This looks like a pretty tough track to ride. 50ks on a track like this is like 100ks on the road. Don't know if it could be done in 4 days i.e. 50ks a day. But this splits nicely into sections…"

Wonder would there be any interest in doing the Goldfield track (website has this name ).

It basically runs from Bendigo to Ballarat following mostly the old walking track and for most part requires a mountain bike or perhaps a tough tourer.

There is also the Okeefe rail trail  presently running  east of Bendigo for 27km,(will be extended in 2015)

The current issue of RIDEON has an article.

Please advise if interested.

You mentioned a while ago seeking interest in doing this route.

There is an article in Adventure cyclings archives.

Search under name of author  Chuck Haney and article is BC Ballast
