Today we will return to a ride we did earlier in the year from Whittlesea to Pheasant Creek. This is a relatively easy winding ascent up the Humevale Rd to Pheasant Creek (300m in 7km – about 4% average).
At Pheasant Creek we will make a refreshment stop at the “Flying Tarts” bakery before returning along Humevale Rd or optionally via the main Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd. Either way is a great downhill, but Humevale Rd is a little more pleasant.
Meet inside the gate at the Whittlesea football ground, which is on the left heading out of Whittlesea towards Kinglake just before crossing Scrubby Ck. The vehicle entrance to the football ground is through the low brick fence just before the Show ground main entrance.
Plenty of parking, and toilets are open. Be there for an 0930 start.
