Here's a train-friendly ride a bit closer to home. We'll start at Hurstbridge train station and head up to Kinglake via Bowden Spur Rd which is steep and all dirt. Then we'll fly down the other side, dive into the Toolangi State Forest and make our way to the summit of Mt Despair. We'll follow the power lines back towards Kinglake and climb up and over via Captains Creek Rd before rolling back down to Hurstbridge for tea and scones.
This one's relatively short and close to home but there's a significant amount of climbing, largely on dirt. An accessible yet challenging ride.
