It's pedal power Vs steam power. Race the train from Castlemaine to Maldon, and while you're at it, try to beat your mates! You're racing for line honours, cash prizes, and of course the glory!
If you'd rather take your time, then join "The Ride". An all abilities, leisurely ride beside the scenic historic Victorian Goldfields Railway broad gauge track. The ride will start just after "The Race" is Castlemaine to Maldon. Riders can catch the train back to Castlemaine, but seats are limited, so book early
It's a 17.6km course (or 20.8km for those who want to take the long route) along dirt tracks and trails.
