MBUG has not ridden the length of Simons Hill Rd for many years so Tony has put this lovely ride on the calender for all of us to enjoy.
Today Tony will lead us out of Kilmore along the Mill Rd and then down to the Old Sydney Rd at the top of Pretty Sally. Part of this section will be on the shoulder of the Northern Highway, so take care and ride single file along there. We then enjoy that lovely downhill along the Darraweit Rd before turning off at Simons Hill Rd. As always the downhill comes with a cost. this time it is in the form of the short but very steep pull up to the Old Mill Rd corner at the North end of Simons Hill Rd (presumably this is the road’s namesake). Take this climb as a personal challenge and see if you can ride it all the way to the top. From there is an easy ride back to coffee in town.
A plot of the proposed 31km route may be viewed on RWGPS at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/35114359
There are gravel surfaces on Old Sydney and Simons Hill Rds so MTB or Hybrid is advised.
Meet at the Hudson Park carpark in Skehan Place for an 0900 start.
