A nice cruisy one to finish off the year. If you've been wanting to check out these rides but were turned off by the distance and/or early start time, this one's for you. It's relatively short, it starts at a reasonable hour and it still hits some awesome terrain.
We'll head out east on Canterbury Road and then hit Basin-Olinda Road for the first (dirt) climb of the day. Then it's past the amazing Woolrich Lookout before bombing down through the national park to Silvan Dam. We'll take Olinda Creek Road back up to Kalorama and then cut across the front face of the mountain before closing the loop at the Basin roundabout.
Depending on who turns up and how everyone's feeling we can bail out on the train at Boronia or keep riding back to the city. Cruisy fun to farewell another year of TWBD.
