We had to abandon this ride earlier in the year on the top of Pretty Sally due to high winds and cold conditions, but today we will have another attempt at the complete ride.
The loop takes us out Rowes Lane to the Old Sydney Rd, climbing from there to the top of the Pretty Sally Hill from which it is practically all downhill back to Wallan via Arkells Lane and the Epping Rd.
This ride has some very pretty sections along wooded roads and commanding views back towards Melbourne from up on the Pretty Sally Hill.
A shorter option exists (you can bail at the top of Pretty Sally), but it is not nearly as much fun as riding down Arkells Lane. You can even stop and check out the proposed route of our new Rail Trail as you cruise down Arkells Lane.
Meet at the old Free library building in Hudson Park, Wallan for an 0900 start
