Lap of Local Lakes

  • Distance: 89 km loop
  • Description: A long loop around the low lying farms, lakes and wetlands in the middle of the GABCY area. For less fit riders, it will probably work better as an overnight lake campout in warm weather.
  • Amenities: Rushworth, Corop, Colbinabbin.
  • Accommodation: Rushworth, Colbinabbin, Greens Lake (camp).
  • Ride surfaces: 60% gravel or earth, 30% quiet sealed roads, 10% busy sealed roads. [However, 6km of busy sealed road is going into Corop and returning to the loop. This could be avoided if you didn’t need to go to the shop there].
  • Terrain: Flat with a slight rise into Rushworth although most riders would not notice. Total vertical metres = 290m.
  • Suggested Ride: Start at Rushworth, lunch at Colbinabbin with overnight campout at Greens Lake. Lake activities next morning before riding back to Rushworth. Be aware this is a low lying area and some earth/clay roads may be adversely effected by recent rain. Also check information on Greens Lake before travelling, there are reports that its water supply is being cut-off and water level may fall.
  • Highlights: Scenic towns of Rushworth and Colbinabbin, with pub and painted silos. Greens Lake with camping facilities. Potential for the wetlands along the route to provide interesting side trips.
