[Dec 15, 2013] Big River Adventure Bike Ride

Discussion in 'VIC' at netrider.net.au started by Tenrider, Dec 9, 2013.

  1. Been wanting to check some of these roads for a while. I have picked relatively easy roads and Tracks. I have two alternatives.

    If anyone is keen?

    Warburton to Eildon Jamieson Rd via Archeron Way and Big River Rd.
    Marysville to Jamieson Via Big River Frenchmans Track, German Track, Flowerbag Track.

  6. Had a blast. Harder then I expected. Managed Acheron Way and some fire roads then to Big river road were we managed to do Frenchmans Spur,not before we got a little lost and went up a hair raising track that proceeded to punish my suspension.Gravel road was like being on marbles but it was good to get the practice in and some pointers for the day. We were running out of time so we gravel road it to Jamieson German Spur looks difficult.Next time I may try to head up Mt Terrible. Local cop said it wasn't a bad road.

  7. Awesome route.

    None of the tracks come up on google maps. Any ideas as to how we can find them?

    EDIT: Actually I can see tracks but there are no labels.
