Cycling in Melbourne Australia
I am looking for some advice.
I recently got my act together to get up and trained for the Mt Macedon challenge ride. I didnt end up doing it because I didnt think it would be a pleasant experience...(yes I piked it because of the weather).
Anyway, in the next month or so I want to get out of town and go do a hilly country road sportive type ride. Riding the same old roads is starting to diminish in excitement.
I need to have it done pre mid-Jan as life will get a bit hectic after this for a while.
Does anyone know of anyone good sportives coming up pre mid Jan?
Alternatively any good loops that are really easy to navigate for a first timer? (I wish I had a GPS!).
Would happily go do it without it being a set event but dont particularly want to get lost.
I also dont want to drive all day to get there, so within a 90 minute drive from Melbourne would be ideal.
Not asking for much am I?!
Is the Mt Macedon challenge route easy enough to navigate without marshalls etc?
Any ideas / suggestions would be great.
Thanks Justin (sorry about the delay in response!)
