Starting in the river town of Mannum, stage 1 of the Murray Plains Cycle Trek slowly winds it’s way through the vast network of rural unsealed roads that snake through the district. The trek is ideal for bike riders of all levels and allows riders to experience and explore the Murray Plains at a leisurely pace.
At a linear distance of 54km starting at Mannum ‘s Information Centre and finishing at Sedan’s Travelers Rest Stop, the Murray Plains Cycle Trek is designed to be ridden in either direction and follows a series of yellow and blue marker arrows located on existing sign posts or steel droppers on the road side.
Please take care while riding the trek as it uses existing public roads that cars, trucks and farm machinery may use.
