Bruthen to Bumberrah Bike Ride


Yesterday I went for my first bike ride of 2014 on part of the East Gippsland Rail Trail. I drove to Bruthen and then rode from Bruthen to Bumberrah and back to Bruthen.  I have done this part of the rail trail many times. We have had quite severe winds here over the last couple of days and as a result there were a few trees down on the rail trail and I had to lift my bike over the trees.

Some art work has been installed in one of the tunnels.  You can see that the exhibition is long finished but some of the works were still there.  If you click on the slow-e-motion picture you can see it in a larger scale and you will be able to read it.

After I had completed my bike ride I met my husband at the Bullant Brewery in Bruthen and we had a delightful lunch.

I had prawn and avocado salad. A lovely way to finish off the morning.

      I love it. I have done it a few times but always enjoy it. The ride there and back takes about two hours so it is a good exercise session.

  2. I love the countryside you live in, and the sun always seems to shine. That was a very healthy looking lunch you enjoyed after your ride, I bet you had an appetite for it.

      The lunch was delicious and healthy but I also sampled a few of my husbands kipfler chips, now quite so healthy.

    I used to live at Bumberrah in a Victorian Railways house. My parents looked after the railway station and I have great memories of the age of steam trains! Les Pickett

      How wonderful to hear from you Les. Bumberrah is a lovely part of the Victorian countryside. There is no evidence of houses near the spot where the station used to be. How long ago was it when your parents looked after the railway station?
