Not quite the six hours and 2500m of climbing suggested in BN’s training plan, but not a bad half day out. Rode out to the Dandenongs along Scotchmans Creek and Blind Creek trails then found a few of the less trafficed roads before descending back down the Olinda-Basin road and home mostly along the Dandenong Creek trail. Being Fathers Day the hills were packed with families out for a drive or a lunch outing, so traffic was a bit of a problem, but the creek trails there and back were ok, just the usual off-leash dogs and mud-slime filled underpasses. No lyrebirds today, just parrots and cockatoos
No lyrebirds today, just parrots and cockatoos. Cool up in the forest, verging on the downright cold for the descent back to The Basin, I gave a little shout for joy coming out of the trees at the bottom and watching the temperature get back up into double digits!
