On Ya’ Bike: Cycle from Newstead to Maldon through the Muckleford Forest – and return

April 7, 2023

On Ya’ Bike

Yep, now that the weather is cooling down a bit, here at Newstead Walks and Wheels we think it’s the perfect time to get on your bike and cycle through the beautiful Muckleford bushland.  Join us at 10 am on April 23rd, as we head off to the historic township of Maldon. This will be a leisurely ride along the dirt tracks that meander through the forest up to Maldon.

Beginning at the Newstead Park, diagonally opposite the IGA in Lyons St. Newstead, we will make our way to the rotunda-less park and then head up the MacLaren Road hill into the bush. From the top of the hill things are easier all the way to Maldon so you can focus on enjoying the surrounding landscape.

Arriving in Maldon, we’ll stop for a coffee and refreshments before making our way back along the same route, roughly a 34 kilometre circuit with plenty of stops along the way to catch your breath and catch up with each other while you are at it.

The route is mostly well-maintained dirt tracks, with a small amount of footpath, or asphalt at either end.

Bring a snack, water bottle, money for coffee (and cake!) and a basic repair kit.

Time:10 am, Date 23rd April 2023.  Contact: 0409 544 063 or 0401 107 857
