Melbourne/Vic Locals Route Help
Forrest is great. Don’t think there is much sneaky stuff out there though as the trail network is well established and well looked after. Mariners run is my favourite out there, but other great ones include ‘follow the dog’ and ‘The red carpet’ descent. There should be good maps online for the You Yangs also. I’ve only ridden there once for a race last year. THe stockyards section is fast, flat and flowy, the rest is rocky and steep in places.Posted 4 years ago
The comm games track and the rest of Lysterfield is fun although it gets a bit crowded and the trails do suffer a bit because of it. Check if the trails are open online. We were there a week ago and a few trails were closed due to water damage, but a number were open.
There are lots of other places to ride out this way also. Drop me an email if you want more info or someone to take you out for a ride. School hols at the moment so as a teacher I get to relax and look after my kids.
Cheers got forrest and you yangs sorted. Been there a few times. Found the start of the old Odyssey route from Apollo bay but not sure if its open or not. Just trying to get something near there for a couple of days while we stay over there. Might just strap the garmin on and go exploring.Posted 4 years ago
Cheers, just out of the Apollo bay area, we were there with friends so had to make do, did some loops round there mostly just fire roads but was OK as my rear brake had leaked some fluid in transit. Got to forrest today for a loop then more tomorrow, before You Yangs on Saturday. Saw the Old Odyssey route and the climb might have put me off had it been legal!!Posted 4 years ago
