Bikes and the High Country Rail Trail

The reconstruction of the trestle bridges continues with our volunteers . It is amazing  seeing these beautiful wooden trestle bridges coming back to life. The really high ones are being bypassed. The original structures will be preserved so they continue to grace our trail. They are just too expensive to restore to a point of being able to be used but will still be there to look at.

Over the last month the Bed and Breakfast has had quite a number of push bike riders stay. Road bikes, hybrids, mountain bikes and even one built for two. Some have wanted to be dropped at Shelley riding the trail where it was relatively easy going downhill with a mix of on road and trail, the very adventurous, riding mountain bikes negotiating the tricky not yet opened bits, having to get over shut gates, wade though creeks and share the track with horses and cattle – all great fun. Our trail is becoming increasing popular which is a real bonus for Tallangatta bringing much needed tourist dollars to our town. Increasingly we are getting groups after a shared 3 day experience using Tallangatta as a base – travelling to Wodonga and then Shelley.
