Today we will ride the loop out through the Pretty Sally Estate North of town and up 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 24km 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.
Meet at the old Free library building in Hadfield Park, Wallan for an 0930 start.
A list of MBUG start points is available at http://g.co/maps/d4txy
There are gravel surfaces on the Old Sydney Rd and Arkells Lane, so MTB or Hybrid bicycles are recommended.
