Description: Celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Mabo Day, the ride will take in a number of local indigenous and historic interest points along the route. Commencing at Selwyn Park, riders will travel along Kororoit creek Trail connecting with the Federation Trail in the City of Wyndham then West along the Werribee river into Werribee.
Kororoit Creek was the home of the Wurundjeri Aboriginal tribe who hunted, fished and camped along the creek for thousands of years. Aboriginal occupation is evident in the form of many scattered artifacts dotted along the creek together with a number of scar trees where canoes or implements were carved from the bark of the red gums.
An easy medium, flat ride.

The weather looked ominous, but a determined group of 20 recreational riders and 10 Brimbug members came along to celebrate Reconciliation week and to mark the 20 anniversary of the Mabo determination. It was a very pleasant and informative 35km ride along the Kororoit creek, Federation and Werribee river trials. The ride finished in Werribee with a lovely lunch at the Bowls Club.
Many thanks to the Brimbank Council for organising a great event and to Goldcross Cycles, Hoppers Crossing for the on ride support.
Well done to all those who came along for the ride.
