Galloping Goose



On the trestle bridge over the lower end of the Gorge waterway in Victoria.

This is part of the extensive Galloping Goose Trail cycling and walking route.

I used to ride over this bridge on my way to work every day for a few years.

It gets thick frost in the winter and sometimes ice and snow.

Fat tires, under-inflated, helped me to not wipe out on the winter rides.

My closest call was when I very nearly ran over a woman on a road bike with skinny hard tires – she crashed right in front of me.

    • Hi Yvonne, some say that it is named for a railcar that formerly operated on the rail line that has been converted into this trail, and others say it is just marketing. Either way, it has stuck firmly as the name for the trail. The idea of galloping geese is of course ludicrous but since it is like something from an old children’s story is endearing.
