Hi Everyone, Im trying to locate a list of Criterium tracks in Victoria, ideally located in or around the south eastern suburbs. So far the only one that I have found is Casey Fields ( http://www.casey.vic.gov.au/arts-leisur ... eriumtrack ) does anyone know of any others. Or good circuits around factory complexes? It would be nice to be able to go somewhere local where I live and push out lap after lap to build up doing distance without stopping.
Which area, in particular, do you live?
Caulfield-Carnegie have one in Mulgrave - Glenvale Crescent circuit - but it is very busy during the week (industrial area).
Plenty of places to cut laps if you want - any number of new-ish estates in the southeast would work - just have to be wary that they are open roads.
Casey is a very good set-up IMO.
Casey Fields is the only specific criterium track.
The other local crits to Melbourne I know of are:
SKCC - White St. South Melbourne (industrial estate)
HCC - Kew Boulevard, Kew (road circuit)
CCCC - Glenvale Crescent, Springvale (industrial estate)
CCCC - Sandown Raceway (Motor vehicle race circuit)
Coburg CC - National Boulevard, Coburg (industrial estate)
There is a long standing proposal in the 'government system' to develop another specific criterium circuit in the SE suburbs area, but location is an issue and it's not going anywhere fast...
If you want to build up distance without stopping, it might also be worth checking out an outdoor velodrome - there are quite a few around!
Most of the industrial circuits you'll end up needed to stop.
Can't get into Sandown unless there's a race on.
HCC's teardrop circuit in Kew would be a good spot, but you do have a slight hill in every circuit!
Kew Boulie end to end, with or without the crit loop, is the best option if you can get there easily.
13.2kms out and back from either end, or about 15km with the loop.
Three or four full laps of that and you know you've had a decent ride.

Here's my blog - A bit of fun
"Riding not racing...."
I live in Ferntree Gully. I do want to get down to casey fields, the times I have available to get down there and use the track, it is usually in use.
I have managed to work out a nice 6km loop around the streets where I live, however I have to stop regularly for vehicles (bit of a pain really). There does appear to be a nice 3.4km loop around the Caribbean Industrial park which, in theory, should be very quiet outside of normal business hours. The big problem for me though is time is very limited.
The places suggested here are great, however I think that I am going to have to hunt around my local industrial estates to create circuits from.
