Students from regional schools go on a bike hike
Students from Avenel Primary School, Seymour College and Nagambie Primary School recently took on the challenge of riding more than 100 km along the Great Victorian Rail Trail.
Though shortened to two days due to inclement weather, students still undertook a challenging ride.
On the first day, students rode 55 km on a hilly course making their way from Molesworth to Alexandra and then on to Yea.
On day two, students rode from Yea to Tallarook in glorious weather, taking in the beautiful sights of the Goulburn River.
The three-day bike hike truly was a great collaborative effort between the teachers, students and parents of the three schools and provided a unique opportunity for everyone to mix and mingle while engaging in a great physical challenge.
Over the years, the ride has been strongly supported by Seymour Police and they again assisted with some of the road crossings on day two.
Overall, the ride was an outstanding success and everyone is eagerly looking forward to the 2019 ride.
