Best route for Chadstone to city?

Postby stryker84 » Thu Oct 20, 2011 1:00 am


I'm going to have to be in Melbourne for 4 weeks for a uni placement, at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. I'm going to ask at orientation about bike facilities at the hospital, and if amenable, I might be thinking of commuting daily.

Haven't exactly worked out my accommodation yet, but one option might be a friend's place in Chadstone, and was wondering what the best way to get from there to Parkville would be.

I know my way around the inner north and west, but when it comes to cycling across to the SE Suburbs, I'm lost. Too many freeways mucking routes up. ;)

From Chadstone you can ride along the Gardiners Creek Trail which joins with the Yarra Trail and takes you into the city. The Trails is a good ride, it is not the most direct, but it is more enjoyable than the main roads.
