I rode up there a couple of years ago when there was snow on the ground and frost on the road, and that patch was definitely the obvious "danger zone".
Definitely ice on Stromlo this morning, I decided to do a recce in the car first and where the water runs across the road (where that dip on the left side was before they filled it), the rear wheels lit up. I ended up doing repeats from the boom gate to the speed hump.

Caution should be taken out on East Tallagandra on the creek crossing, too. A mate went down a few weeks back on the entry coming from sutton. Stretch was about 5-10m long and near invisible. Just looks like water was splashed on the road.
After the crossing, none of us had brakes for about half an hour. Water on rims iced up.

That’s the problem with this time of year. it’s a bit more dampness in the morning and with the early dawn drop in temp it’s a recipe for unpleasantness.
