Straight up Armadale Hill :D With a full touring load :twisted:

The Zig Zag is a good ride.

Road riding

Road riding, just after a good loop. I will be riding from fremantle.
I did one with a group from nedlands/ midland/ mundaring/ kalamunda home. Any ideas appreciated.

If you don't mind riding main roads, there is a loop that goes up Armadale hill and along the highway past Glen Eagle Picnic area. Take the next right which goes to Jarrahdale? (I can't find the map yet, haven't fully unpacked) which is a bitumen road with a few hills.

This takes you back down to the SW Highway. Turn right and about 100 yards up the road, take a left and keep riding until you get back to the freeway cycle path. When doing this bit in the afternoon, you are riding into the afternoon head wind (sea breeze).

Turn right at the freeway path going north and make your way home.

Getting to Armadale, I went down South Street and went left at the end to get to Armadale.

I don't know how far this is as I never bothered to check the speedo.

There are some more rides with hills further south.

I'm interested in a hill loop also. I've just moved here (Fremantle) from over East and as much as I don't "love" hills, I seem to be missing them :?
