I can dig, I don't recall Highs Road being the slightest bit cyclist friendly in either direction Which is a shame, because WPH is crawling with awesome cycling opps.
Oh believe me, I have done the full WPH Valley along there, up Highs Rd, down County Dr, then up David Rd (with it's nasty pinch up to New Line Rd). That route adds 5km of pain to my commute, and an extra 30 minutes because it takes me so far out of my way it is insane.
I once rode up Coonara Ave instead, thinking it would be easier than highs rd. That was a big mistake!
I commuted that route every day for a couple of months and it was a hard slog. I was also on a Hybrid bike at the time. Highs Rd is awesome on the way in though...boy does the bike get some speed along there, but probably not as quick as the Freewheeling 79.9km/h coming down New Line Rd from Hungry Jacks to Hastings Rd!
