143km Gundowring Grail

25th February 2017

Lake hume 131 km

7.00 am start

The 143km Gundowring Grail ride is our ‘Premier Ride’. It is a demanding ride for the more advanced and seasoned cyclist; not for the casual rider.  Elevation gain is 1,409 m. Cyclists cross Yackandandah Creek and ride up the Valley to join the Myrtleford Road and discover the natural beauty of the Kiewa Valley foothills. They ride past Mt Big Ben, into the Alpine Shire and the Village of Dedarang (First Rider Reviver stop) cross over the Kiewa River, then ride down the valley through the picturesque hamlet of Gundowring, then the dairy town of Tangambalanga.

They then weave their way back to Lake Hume, crossing over the Hume Dam Wall (Second Rider Reviver stop) then returning to Albury as per the other rides.

NB. The ride is replacing the 131 km Granya Grind due to road works near the Bethanga Bridge.

  • Hello. Do you have a tcx version for the Grail for the riders who use a garmin decide and not familiar to the roads? Much appreciated. Can’t wait to go!

    again I am grateful for the volunteer’s and for those who orgninise the ride. You are legends!

  • I did the 143 loop yesterday. Due to no signage/marshal, we, together with 10 others who joined us ended up taking the wrong route and did +/- 173km’s. One would have thought that a sign was the very least that could have been posted for people unfamiliar with the area. I have subsequently heard that even the lead vehicle missed the turn! Very disappointing.
