Melbourne Popular

These are the popular routes in Melbourne where you'll find riders of all ages and abilities nearly anytime of the day.







After a short warm-up, you'll climb the 1:20 (Mountain Hwy) up to Sassafras in the Dandenongs.


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)


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!


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.


Death Valley

A short but lumpy route Northern East of Melbourne in the glorious Yarra Valley.



A good honest climb 40km North of Melbourne. Narrow, windy and consistent, it will test you.



Kinglake is synonymous with riding in Melbourne. Ride through Eltham, Kangaroo Ground and quaint St Andrews to climb Kinglake. Take care on the descent


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


Whittlesea - Healesville

A challenge from Whittlesea climbing all the way to Kinglake. Downhill through Toolangi to Healesville. The return is equally hard.



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.


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!

Short but lumpy loop from Templestowe to Warrandyte.


Fitzroy-Hurstbridge Loop

About 65km, initial gradual climb to warm up heading north, couple of steep pinches into hills above Hurstbridge with a long down hill to the coffee stop, undulating back towards Ivanhoe with one climb at Rosanna in Lower Heidelberg Rd, easy flat finish for the last 4k back home. Mal P
