One of regional Victoria’s most anticipated cycling events, the Tour de Rutherglen is back for 2012!
With a working title of ‘The Murray Meander’, participants will follow a gentle 32km cycling loop, visiting four award winning wineries en-route, each influenced in their own way by the mighty Murray River.
Food and wine share equal billing with cycling on the Tour de Rutherglen and participants will have ample opportunity to indulge in all – think hosted tastings with the winemaker, unique food and wine matching experiences at each winery, and a sumptuous picnic lunch featuring delicious regional fare. The course is fully marshalled (complete with sag wagon!) and cyclists of all ability are invited to attend
After a hard day in the saddle guests are also invited to the official tour dinner at the renowned Mrs Browns Restaurant (Victoria Hotel Rutherglen). Relax with friends old and new as head chef Gavin Swalwell presents a regionally inspired three course meal, with a great selection of local wines also available.
For those keen to cover a few more kilometres, join the locals for an optional Sunday morning roll out – please enquire on booking.
