Questions:
Are the start and end points accessible by train?
Is the difficulty due to gradient or technical terrain?

I'd like to come along to this one, need to try to squeeze in some more off-road time by Tuesday...

Is the difficulty due to gradient or technical terrain? MAINLY DUE TO TECHNICAL, A LITTLE DUE TO GRADIENT

Another one to sleep through :roll: Bloody shift work.
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.

With the amount of heavy rain we've had in Melbourne in the last 24 hours, and with the prospect of more showers and waterlogged tracks, I am thinking of postponing this ride to an upcoming Saturday

Stay tooned.....

Hayfever, sore throat and crappy weather has once again foiled my ride plans..... :(

Seems like every second weekend has been a wash-out recently :|
