Taking you from Daylesford north to the Chocolate Mill, this map has suggested routes at Very Easy (White), Easy (Green) and Intermediate (Blue) riding levels. Or simply make up your own route.
Suggested parking areas to maximise off road riding are shown. The White route is almost entirely on road. Blue can be combined with green in the north. Feedback welcome as always.

Musk & Glenlyon
A Station, 2 Springs and a Store
A rough and ready map converted from a Cyclic Navigator event. However, it is fairly accurate.
From Musk Station (on Sunday you can take your bike on the train from Daylesford), you can visit Passing Clouds Winery, Istra Smallgoods, Daylesford Cidery and Leitches Creek mineral spring.
From the spring, you could ride through the large (177 x 5 & 10 acre blocks) yet hidden Wheatsheaf bush settlement.
The Glenlyon General Store awaits you with coffee, drinks, food and maybe live music on a weekend. Glenlyon Back Rd W then S to Giacometti’s Lane is a fast alternative way (mostly tarmac) back to Musk or Daylesford.
The trails surrounding Wheatsheaf.
Prepared specially for the many Wheatsheaf residents walking, running, riding during the Covid-a9 lockdown.
