Not sure if I have posted to the right place, but if you missed the Audax Alpine Classic last month there is good news. There is another ride up that way in a couple of weeks.
It’s the "Granya Grind" ride, part of the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge.
Its not real mountain stuff but at 135 km with rolling hills and the Mt Granya 7km grind its still pretty good riding.
If thats not too you're liking there are 100km and 40km options as well.
It has been written up a few times on the web. There are rider logs about, as well as the course description and profiles including other local attractions.

All true DaviB.
