On Ya’ Bike to Maldon and Back Again

May 21, 2023

After the positive feedback for our April 25 ride from Newstead to Maldon (and back), here at Newstead Walks and Wheels we think a follow up ride is in order.  We are proposing to saddle up at 10 am on June 25 and again find our way to Maldon through the beautiful Muckleford bushland. 

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 and into the bush.  We will cycle past the Red, White and Blue mine and enter Maldon from the Railway Station side of the town.  A few kilometres longer than our last ride.  We’ll stop for coffee and refreshments in Maldon before making our way back along the Mia Mia Road route. This will be a roughly 34-kilometre circuit with plenty of stops along the way 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 25th of May 2023.  Contact: 0409 544 063 or 0401 107 857
