Note: Due to the unavailability of ride leaders, we have had to postpone this ride until a later time. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
Today we return to one of our regular rides 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.
Meet inside the gate to the Whittlesea football ground. The gate is on the left heading out of Whittlesea on the Yea Rd. just after crossing the Plenty River bridge. The vehicle entrance to the football ground is through the low brick fence just before the Show ground main entrance.
If there is an event on and you are expected to pay to enter, just park across the road and walk/ride over.
Plenty of parking, and toilets are open. Be there for an 0900 start.
