Bendigo, Victoria, Australia – Located near the virtual geographical centre of the state of Victoria and close to Melbourne, the town is known for its goldrush during the 1850’s, and a flourishing cycling scene on the road and track. Not so well known is the low traveled network of gravel roads on the outskirts of the city – perfect for gravel cycling.
Bendigo is also home to Steve L.A.G.G. – the Lonely Australian Gravel Guy, although he goes by S.A.G.G. nowadays – the Solo Australian Gravel Guy. Unfortunately, Steve was on holidays in the state of Queensland when JOM visited, but JOM did a sweet loop ride beginning in Bendigo, down to Castlemaine and back again, mostly on gravel roads… and a lap of the Tom Flood Sports Centre Velodrome.
Thanks for watching!
