This 1 day cycle adventure on the Roxburgh Gorge Trail not only has some amazing cycling but also includes a fun and informative jet boat ride on the Clutha River from Doctors Point to Shingle Creek. Cycling on the Roxburgh Gorge Trail is quite a bit steeper than the Railtrail therefore prepare yourself for some climbs and downhill’s. Although the trail is a bit more challenging, the views and scenery make it well worth the extra effort. The entire trail is able to be ridden but in some cases, for those not comfortable or experienced to riding hills the option of pushing some of the steeper sections is advisable.
Your adventure starts in Clyde where upon arrival at our depot you will be fitted with your bikes, briefed on your tour and then we will transport you through to the lookout at Roxburgh Hyrdo Dam.
