Melbourne, for the uninitiated visitor, is an e-biker’s delight. With a cycling culture as developed as the cities’ world class network of cycle paths it is a destination that should be on the bucket list of all keen cyclists – of both the e-bike and non-ebike persuasion.
After exploring – and enjoying - a selection of Victoria’s rail trails and the e-mountain biking on offer at the ski fields of Mt Buller, Mt Buffalo and Falls Creek, my wife, Rachel, and I headed back to Melbourne with one intention – to ride our AVE Adventure bikes on as many cycle trails as possible in the precious few days we had available.
Prior to arriving in Melbourne there was no way, we believed, that we could have as much fun cycling in a city as big as Melbourne as we did in country Victoria.
But let me tell you here and now that we were wrong, very wrong.
