Another ride from our new start point replacing the old one at Dandenong. Far easier to get onto the good country roads from here than the old start point. Still has fuel, coffee and food for those looking to top up before the ride.
The route will take us up through Gembrook and Cockatoo and along the Macclesfield Road through Yellingbo to Woori Yallock then up the Healesville- KooWeRup Road to Healesville for morning tea at the Beechworth Bakery. From there it is up the Myers Creek Road through Toolangi and left at Kinglake. Whilst there have been winding roads to this point it now gets very tight with some corners recommended at 15kph. We then turn left onto Buttermans Track which is quite narrow and windy and up and down as it traverses the range down to Yarra Glen for lunch.
No one should be put off by the tight corners on parts of this ride as it is very safe and speed is restricted for much of the way. Your reward for the concentration required is a very scenic and safe ride through some of the most beautiful and scenic areas of this part of Victoria.
