The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is a great way to see Rutherglen’s wineries, producers and countryside on a leisurely flat ride. If staying for a few days in Rutherglen as a base this is perfect to access the many sections of the trail and explore the region further. Today I completed another section of the M2M with a group of buddies. We parked our vehicles at Gapsted Winery & enjoyed a caffe in the winter sunshine before a leisurely ride to the eastern end Myrtleford (Happy Valley) for lunch at Lupo’s Kiln Cafe (9.9kms). Following lunch, a short pedal further on brought us to the Happy Valley Hotel in Ovens (1.5kms), for a refreshing ale before an express cycle back to Gapsted. We started off at 1pm and returned at 4.30pm. A fab way to fill in the shorter winter daylight hours.
