Well, it took a couple of weeks but today I made my second attempt to ride up to Cheviot Tunnel on the Rail Trail out of Yea. Not much commonsense this time either. Thirty two degrees and quite a strong headwind all the way up to the tunnel which is a 10 km constant climb. But what a fun ride home. Weeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
ABOUT THE TUNNEL
Located midway between Yea and Molesworth, the Cheviot Tunnel is the longest rail trail tunnel in Victoria and a key feature of the original Tallarook to Mansfield Railway Line.
Between Cheviot Station and Cheviot Tunnel, the line runs through four large cuttings. These are testament to the natural obstacles posed by this landscape.
