First ride in the hills

Postby Joeblake » Tue Jan 13, 2009 11:55 pm

Depends where you are coming from and obviously going to. I live in Lesmurdie which is a hill surrounded entirely by flat land. No matter which way you go, it's always up.

Anyway, it's a very nice ride, particularly as it turns towards autumn.

Good luck and keep in contact.

I was down there this afternoon, the Subiaco Museum.

If you look to the East you'll see the TV towers on the hills - I live not far from them.

Puff puff pant pant.

ive never been up there...im keen to start some hill training so if anyone knows of any rides or is keen to organize a ride let me know :)


Nah, there are no punishing hills in the Darling Range I know of. They roll up and down, no mountains. A ride to Toodyay along Toodyay rd. is full of rolling hills for 80km. I've seen a few eager roadies going solo there and back.

South Perth Roulers do a regular 100 odd km ride on a Sunday that takes a variety of routes through the Hills. Either up through Swan Hill, Rolystone, Kalamunda etc and then back another way. It appears to be a bit of a hammerfest so hang on and remember "Hills don't get any easier, you just go uup them faster"
