to Port 2013 November 9th & 10th
to Port is a 2 day bike ride through scenic national parks, rolling
vineyards and along the banks of the mighty Murray River. All
this for $99.00 inc GST per rider.
The two day bicycle ride starts in Mildura and runs through
Swan Hill and on to Echuca. Riders get views of Hattah National
Park, rolling vineyards, orange groves and the mighty Murray
River as they pedal over the 400km course.
The event this year
will be staged over November 9th & 10th. (Port to Port
is always held the weekend after the Melbourne Cup.)
Cyclists leave the Mildura riverfront bright and early on Saturday
morning and head down the Calder Highway. At Hattah, they turn
and ride on to Wemen for a break and refreshments. Then it is
on to the Murray Valley Highway with the Murray River over their
left shoulder. After a food break at Boundary Bend, the riders
head for Swan Hill and a well earned overnight break.
Sunday morning the riders are back in the saddle and look forward
to about a five or six hour ride to Echuca. Then it's party time!
In total we travel 400 kilometres in two days. For the fittest … it’s
all the way! For the rest of us … a leisurely relay.
