Shuttles & Transfers
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the Goldfields Track; a 210km point-to-point track that takes mountain bikers and bushwalkers through some of central Victoria's historic towns and beautiful forests.
Goldfields Track Shuttles & Luggage Transfers
Often the logistics of getting to the start, home from the finish and transferring luggage in-between can all be a bit daunting but a shuttle can be just the answer you're looking for.
- Getting There
If you're based in Melbourne we recommend catching the train to the start in Ballarat and then catching the train home again from the finish in Bendigo. For timetable information visit the V/Line website and read more about V/Line's policy around Bikes on Trains.
If you're not based in Melbourne or a car is your preferred method of travel, then Tread can provide a shuttle service to get you and your friends anywhere along the Goldfields Track and back to your car.
We have a Shingleback Off Road vertical bike rack for the smaller group shuttles, and a custom-built 11-bike trailer with Yakima FrontLoader bike carriers and waterproof luggage compartment for larger groups.
- Luggage Transfers
Many people complete the Track with the simplicity of a Credit Card and a toothbrush… but if that's not your style and you want the freedom to ride or walk each leg without the extra weight and hassle, then let us do the luggage transfers for you.
