essendon? i'd just barrel down Mt A rd all the way thru flemingotn rd, bike lane all the way, though parked cars in the lane are sometimes an annoyance. nice mostly downhill though.
then you'll have to deal with the "wheel of death" i.e., highmarket roundabout, but that's not that big a problem.
but yeah, bikely is a good site for other routes around and about.

I'd recommend the bike path along the Marybyrnong river, heading south to footscray rd, (docklands hwy) were you cross under footscray rd to the south side and take a left along the bike path towards the CBD, head right around docklands and take a left into the CBD at Lonsdale, or keep going and take collins st.

Bike path all the way, one or two rd crossings merges you need to take some care on but otherwise an easy run.

Cheers
