Can I suggest that coffee after dark is not generally a good idea?
The thing is, getting fitter is not just about how hard you train, it's also how well you recover and supercompensate. That much caffeine of an evening will interfere with sleep, which will hurt your recovery if not your ability to function in life generally.
Caffeine impact on sleep
Supercompensation effect of training
So I'd suggest finding somewhere fun and interesting to ride to, but leave out the coffee. Or substitute peppermint tea.

Nth Melbourne, Docklands, Southbank, Chapel St, Richmond, CBD, Fitzroy, Collingwood......even Brunswick are easy enough depending and accessible either on or off road. Keeno then head south along Beach Rd to Elwood, Brighton etc.
There's no doubt many options west and Nth/West of Footscray. West is not an area I'm familiar with, and TBH wouldn't head out to. Maybe Nth/West but that will have greater elevation which may or not be what you want.
Oh crap.....I just re-read and realised you're after Footascray options Sorry, no idea.
