Hurstbride and Back

Postby Heisenberg » Wed Aug 14, 2013 9:09 pm

Hi, after doing quite a few miles on the MTB I've gotten myself a roadie as trails take too long to get to and I enjoy just getting out and spinning.

I'm looking at doing some rides starting from the Essendon area around 60-90km in length. I've been playing around with some routes and this is one that I've come up with.

Haven't done any riding on the roads up that way and just trying to figure out a safe way to get out of the city. If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know, I'm also interested if any one knows of any good 60-90km rides that I would be able to do from the Essendon area. Of course a riding partner would be great as well!

Thanks in advance.

Don't be afraid to take the train or car out to Hurstbridge and do your 60-90 km rides from there.

Enormous fun. :smile:

Early in the mornings you can take the Greensborough Highway/ Greensborough bypass to Diamond Creek and keep riding to Hurstbridge.

This can be busier and a bit hairier later in the day once traffic increases though.

If you are out that way, check out Broad Gully road that runs north from Diamond Creek.
