Swollen Dinner Bag


Visiting : Mt Dandenong, Mt Donna Buang, Toolangi, Kinglake
Distance : ~210km
When : Sunday 12th September, 7am @ Fed Square
Where : Click here for route map

This is a big ride - I want to cram as much as possible into one day. We'll see Basin-Olinda Rd climb, Silvan Road descent to the dam, Don Rd and then Donna Buang climb (weather permitting), Long Gully up to Toolangi, on up to Kinglake and then Bald Spur, Hildebrand, Mine Rd before cutting down to Hurstbridge and then 'burbs all the way back into the city.

A lot of distance and a lot of climbing - we'll be racing against nightfall from the very start and it's highly likely we won't finish it all in time. It'll be kinda like a naughty dog trying to scoff a whole birthday cake from the kitchen counter when you go out of the room for two minutes.

Except the dog has wheels, the cake is made of dirt and two minutes is more like twelve hours.
