Ride With Us – Timboon, Cobden, Port Campbell and district
Immerse yourself in nature when visiting the Great Ocean Road and enjoy a quiet and peaceful bike ride along the Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail. Or consider cycling from Timboon to the coast at Port Campbell along the 12 Apostles Bicycle Trail. Hire a bicycle or ebike from Ride With Us in Cobden, Timboon or Port Campbell and make your way along these two picturesque Great Ocean Road bicycle trails. The only distractions will be the beautiful surroundings.
Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail
Ride the quiet Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail on Ride With Us eBikes or mountain bikes, and discover the tall forest, historic bridges, open farmland and magnificent lakes. This rail trail is a hidden gem in the Great Ocean Road region and is one of Victoria’s lessor known rail trails so you won’t have to worry about constantly dodging people, children and dogs on your ride like other popular trails you might have experienced.
The most popular places to start your ride along this trail are from Naroghid, Cobden or Timboon. Trail note: Camperdown town centre to Naroghid trail head entry directs you along country roads to the off-road trail head entry of the Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail which starts from Naroghid (a 7 minute drive from Camperdown town centre), We recommend choosing to start your ride anywhere between Naroghid and Timboon if you would feel more at ease riding on the trail rather than along country roads.
12 Apostles Bicycle Trail
The 12 Apostles Trail is a 20km bicycle, walking and running path which takes you from Port Campbell to Timboon and connects with the Camperdown to Timboon Rail Trail in Timboon.
A brand new scenic bicycle trail which meanders through farmland to the coast on the Great Ocean Road at Port Campbell.
Both trails have many flat sections. They are excellent for people wanting to avoid crowds and for those who love nature and being outdoors when you travel.
Try an ebike in a quiet country setting. Immerse yourself in an active holiday experience which will leave you with lasting memories to share with loved ones.
