Barnsdale to Jindabyne - Submitted by Danny of Bligh Park
Ride Type: Sealed and unsealed mountain roads
Ride Duration: Approx 3-4 hours
Barnsdale to Jindabyne via The Barry Way. This Ride is fantastic if you have a duel purpose bike. It would be possible to ride on most bike but care must be taken as there is around 90km unsealed road. The dirt section is in fairly good condition but in spots it is narrow and steep. Watch out for other cars (very few) coming the opposite direction. This road is illustrated on most maps.
This ride is one of my personal favourites. The sealed section from Barnsdale to Seldom seen, is great. The road is mixed with some very good winding road that is in very good condition. There is some very good valley views around Buchan. also there are caves to visit and a couple of great places to eat. You may want to top up your fuel here. Seldom seen road house is well worth the stop. The dirt starts here. the road is normally well maintained and the ride is fairly easy. there is some spectacular views following the snowy river. Around 30km short of Jindabyne the road converts back to tar. this road is in very good condition and very little traffic. Watch out for farm vehicles and stock. From Melbourne, I would suggest an over night stay at Jindabyne, with a cold beverage and lake views , what a way to end a great ride!
Mt Evelyn, Warburton Highway, Yarra Junction, Noojee, Neerim, Drouin and home - Submitted by Stuart of Cranbourne
Ride Type: Day cruise
Ride Duration: Full day
Follow Canterbury Road to York Road roundabout and head towards Mt Evelyn. From Mt Evelyn head out on the Warburton Highway to Yarra Junction. Yarra Junction has a few nice coffee shops, I have not found a bad one yet. From Yarra Junction, head out on the Yarra Junction - Noojee Road. Follow into Noojee, and turn left and go over the bridge at the start of Loch Valley Rd and turn right into "The Tool Shed" for lunch. From Noojee head towards Neerim and out to Drouin. Another lovely place for a coffee before heading onto Lang Lang, out to the South Gippsland Highway and head for home.
Good combination of grippy roads, with some good bends. No need to take them fast as it is satisfying when you get the apex right.
