Some Important Trail Information
Firstly a little heads up; the Roxburgh Gorge Trail, is not like the Rail Trail you do need to have experience and for some sections you will need to be careful when riding them. However in saying that it is truly spectacular and a must for every-ones “Bucket List”.
From our perspective and to make things really easy we suggest you start at our shop in Clyde our bikes are very well suited to this trail being Trek Roscoe 7’s.
Our suggested itinerary would be then to bike the River Track to Alexandra (12kms) which is a great single track trail then head into the Roxburgh Gorge. You will then ride 10km of  seriously  spectacular countryside until you get to Doctors Point. We will have the boat waiting for you to transport you the 12kms down the lake to Shingle Creek. You would need to ensure you are at the Doctors Point Jetty at the arranged time. You will then ride the next 12kms to Roxburgh Dam, some of the sights are super impressive here and riding the switchbacks will be memorable. 
You cross the Roxburgh Dam and follow the Clutha Gold Trail for approximately 9kms and cross the Clutha River into Roxburgh town itself. We will then meet you at 103 The Store Cafe, load up your bikes and shuttle you back to Clyde
