2023 Male Bag Ride – Victorian High Country

Date: 19/10/2023 12:00 am

The 2023 Male Bag Ride, Victorian High Country, took place on the 19th to 22nd October 2023. This 4 day adventure had our participants enjoy a challenging yet rewarding treck all in support of funding prostate cancer research and treatment through the Male Bag Foundation!

Thursday, 19/10/23, was a challenging ride of 340km, stopping for lunch in Euroa and before finishing in the beautiful north-east Victorian town of Bright at the foothills of the Great Dividing Range.

Friday, 20/10/23, was a more leisurely day, highlighted by riding along the scenic Kiewa Valley before returning to Bright through the picturesque townships of Yackandandah, Beechworth, and Myrtleford.

Saturday, 21/10/23, we cruised up the King Valley for a dry lunch at the iconic Whitfield pub, then crossed the twisting mountain road that takes us toward Mansfield. Along the way, we made a stop at Power’s Lookout, where the gentleman bushranger Harry Power taught Ned Kelly the art of bushranging. We ended the day in Benalla for a fun night at our final dinner.

Sunday, 22/10/23, we return home along the Midland Highway to Bonnie Doon and the Maroondah Highway to Melbourne.

On returning home, we were left with many new friends, lasting memories, and stories to tell. More importantly, we helped The Male Bag Foundation continue to create future prostate cancer survivors.

Thank you to all who supported or participated in the 2023 Male Bag Ride.
