The Kilns - Activities
Activities

Cycling

The kilnhouses are ideally located opposite the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, 11 km from Bright.

To take advantage of this proximity and the wineries and picnic spots nearby, the kilnhouses have worked together with Chappelli Cycles to supply bikes which match the mood and style of the accommodation. Chappelli Cycles are an Australian bicycle company that specialises in internal hub urban and commuter bicycles with shops in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Three sets of bicycles are available for guests to enjoy and explore the surrounding areas. Each bicycle has been designed to maximise riding comfort for rides of 7-10km particularly for those guests who may not ride that often. The bikes have a simplified and easy to use gear system, comfortable saddles and up-right riding style. Helmets are also provided.
