guard van) to Beaufort station. Ride about 45 km to Avoca (arrive about 
10.30pm) stay at Avoca caravan park. 
Saturday: Leave campsite set up at Avoca and enjoy a day ride out to 
several wineries in the area. Total day 40km. 
Sunday: Avoca to either Maldon (campsite) or Baringup national park. about 
Monday: Ride to Bendigo and visit a winery near by or head to the local 
wine bar in town. 40km. Catch the vline train (with guard 
van) from Bendigo at 6.21 pm - arrive in the city by 8.28pm. 
There are many other options we could take ie. if it rains heaps we could 
stay in Avoca and catch the train back from Beaufort to the city. If some 
people didn't want to ride at night on the Friday night, they could catch 
an early train on Saturday morning and meet us at a winery near Avoca or 
in Avoca Saturday arvo/evening. We could also cut the Monday ride shorter 
by going to Castlemaine instead of Bendigo. Bring camping gear, lots of 
warm clothes and a good sense of adventure! let us know if you are 
interested in coming along - it will be best to book vline tickets and 
campsites in advance.
