The day starts at 9:00am at the Trail Journeys Depot in Clyde for bike fitting and tour briefing, before boarding the shuttle to the Roxburgh Hydro Dam. The first section of the trail leads into the stunning Roxburgh Gorge to the Shingle Creek boat ramp. Here a local boat operator will meet and transfer you Doctors Point. Along the way, there is the chance to take in the stunning scenery from river-level and listen to an informative, historical commentary. From Doctors Point, the trail continues to Alexandra where there are two options for the return to our depot. One is to cycle over the Clutha River/Mata Au, through the town and connect with the Rail Trail to return to our depot. Or, alternatively, take the scenic River Track and ride to Clyde township and on to our depot. This route is approximately 6kms longer and does require a little more energy and confidence, but definitely worth it if you have the time.
