Gnurad Lessons - Bike Riding Print E-mail

 At Gnurad Gundidj our state of the art Avanti Montari touring bikes allow us to have all sorts of adventures throughout the Western districts.

Firstly, the students complete a half-day Cycle-On Bike Ed lesson, which gives them all the basic skills to control a bike and ride in group formations. Students also complete a comprehensive servicing and maintenance induction and receive certification for their efforts. Once complete, the students can ride on a range of roads, trails and tracks throughout the surrounding countryside.

Popular biking options include rest day rides along the historic Timboon Rail Trail, along the Warrnambool coastline and throughout the inspiring Tower Hill flora and fauna reserve!

Our bikes are regularly used as an alternative means of transport to some off-campus activities, which helps to promote environmentally sustainable habits. Students are also known to ride in to nearby Noorat to collect the mail and shopping!

One of our key uses of the bikes is as part of the Gnurad Gundidj cycle tour expeditions. During expeditions students equip their panniers with all the required clothing, safety equipment and food for a day on the road. During their stay, the students complete a 2 and 3 day expedition throughout the Western Lakes and Wilderness region, taking in Lake Keilambete, Lake Elingamite and Lake Bullen Merri.
