Today’s ride is one we have had our eye on for some time, in fact it was to go on the calendar back in 2009 however the Black Saturday bushfires wrought havoc with the bush along this lovely relatively easy winding ascent up the Humevale Rd to Pheasant Creek (300m in 15km – 2% average).
It is now five years on the bush is starting to recover and so it is time we finally made it up there. At Pheasant Creek we will make a refreshment stop at the “Flying Tarts” bakery before returning along the Whittlesea-Kinglake Rd to enjoy that fabulous downhill run back to Whittlesea.
Meet inside the gate at the Whittlesea football ground, on 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 entrance.
Plenty of parking, and toilets are open. Be there for an 0930 start.
