Weekend rides around Denmark?

Postby Pravda » Mon Feb 25, 2013 1:34 pm

Heading down south this weekend for Taste Great Southern and I'm hoping to fit in a ride or two around Denmark.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a weekend spin around that way?

Are you taking a road or mountain bike?

I didn't realise that Denmark was so small you could ride around it in a weekend. :lol: :lol: :lol:

There aren't too many <100km loop options around Denmark.

Scotsdale Road -> Mt Macleod Rd -> highway is one option. If you can handle a short section of gravel, you could add Lights Road and Ocean Beach Road to extend the loop.

Albany and back via either the highway or Lower Denmark Road is about 100km

Another option is up the Mt Barker Rd, then across to Narrikup, then down Albany Hwy to Albany, then back to Denmark.

Must be really limiting your options with just a roadie, I'd imagine.

Jealous nonetheless.

Really only have one morning for a ride - maybe two. I'm looking at the scotsdale - mount mcleod road route. Not too worried about a bit of gravel.

The really enjoyable rides are MTB or cross.

I believe the section of the Munda Biddi between Denmark and Albany is now open.

I've got a cross bike, trying to sell it at the moment. Don't think the missus would appreciate my dirty off-roader on her car either. Not confident in finding a decent place to wash it down after.

Riding was good, CX or MTB would both have been great but there's plenty of road riding to be had as well. For anyone who goes take a rain jacket, I got wet, had my jacket but forgot shoe covers it was still a great couple of rides with some nice hills, flats and plenty of great scenery.
