Melbourne Popular

These are the popular routes in Melbourne where you'll find riders of all ages and abilities nearly anytime of the day. If you want to tell me about your favourite route which you think may be of interest to others, then drop me a line and I'll add it to the list

Name Description Melways
1:20 After a short warm-up, you'll climb the 1:20 (Mountain Hwy) up to Sassafras in the Dandenongs. 45-B1
Arthurs Seat This is the main climb of the southern Mornington Peninsular. You may want a longer warm-up than that shown on the map! For an extra test, try Caldwell Rd as well (the extension of McCulloch St) 159-G6
Alpine Tour de Suburbs This is a regular road ride on Thursday nights, hitting Chandler Hwy at the start of this route at around 7:00pm. Some riders commence from St Kilda (and finish there) but many catch the group where convenient. Social competitive riding where winning a climb is everything, but waiting for all riders is better! 45-B1
Beach Rd Everyone knows Beach Rd. This is a coastal ride starting and finishing anywhere along the Port Philip bay coastline. The profile extends down to Morinington, only to show there are some hills to climb if you want them. 43-C4
Death Valley A short but lumpy route Northern East of Melbourne in the glorious Yarra Valley. Vicmap
79-H4
Humevale A good honest climb 40km North of Melbourne. Narrow, windy and consistent, it will test you. Vicmap
61-D9
Kinglake is synonymous with riding in Melbourne. Ride through Eltham, Kangaroo Ground and quaint St Andrews to climb Kinglake. Take care on the descent 33-G3
Wildwood Rd Located just north of the Melbourne Airport (Tullamarine) this 50km circuit offers several short but steep climbs in an otherwise flat terrain. Good training for the Tour of Coleraine 177-H10
Whittlesea - Healesville A challenge from Whittlesea climbing all the way to Kinglake. Downhill through Toolangi to Healesville. The return is equally hard.  
Whittlesea-Humevale Link two rides together in one. The slight uphill all the way to Whittlesea, then test yourself up Humevale. Another regular ride, leaving Bundoora around 7:30am each Sunday morning. 19-F5
Yarra Boulevard Short, testing and close to town, Yarra Boulevard was also used as the time trial course in the 2006 Sun Herald Tour. Multiple laps are expected! 45-B1
