Rokeby to Neerim Rail Trail

We started our ride at Rokeby (north of Warragul and well known as the first sprint of the Baw Baw Classic) The trail winds its way from Rokeby up to Neerim, following a cutting of a section of the old Warragul to Noojee rail line (1890-1958) The first 4km of trail passes through  bushland of the Crossover Regional Park, and passes the original site of the Crossover station. The trail then deviates up and around the Crossover Trestle Bridge (restoration not complete) and, after receiving some much needed directions from local farmer,  we continued up into Neerim (along the yet to be completed trail) The last section of trail follows the Main road and provides fantastic valley views of Mount Baw Baw and Bunyip State Forest.

It was my first ride for some time,
