Ride from the heart of the King Valley's renowned vineyards to the blue waters of Lake Buffalo on locals' favourite Rose River Road.

Prosecco Road cellar doors, vibrant vineyards, smooth gravel roads, pristine bushland, rolling hills and majestic Lake Buffalo - this gravel route has it all. Ride from the moreish local produce of King Valley to Lake Buffalo's calm waters on winding, well-maintained gravel roads through breathtaking scenery. This route is tailored for experienced self-sufficient gravel cyclists, presenting a significant climb up Gentle Annie Gap followed by an exhilarating descent in a remote area with minimal mobile phone coverage. Celebrate with a dip in Lake Buffalo before taking a pre-organised lift back or returning via the same route.
