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.

http://connect.garmin.com/course/4492156

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.
Heisenberg

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.
