Al’s Pals Thursday Ride – Bayswater to Hahndorf’s Nth Balwyn, via Box Hill. 14 Jan 2021
Leaving Marie Wallace Bayswater Park at 8am. 24.5Km one way. Riding time to Hahndorf’s approx. 1.5 hours. Returning the same way, but some may wish to return via the Eastern Freeway / Koonung trails – just remember the hills if you want to do that!

Note new route through Blackburn. Elmore Walk is still open, but rahter than cutting through Elmore Walk, the council probably wants bikes to go on the new green bitumen bike path along Main Street, between South Parade and Laburnum Street.
There’s also a new concrete path from Laburnum Street up the hill towards Middleborough Road, so we don’t have to ride up the Laburnum Railway Station pedestrian ramp any more.
Be careful of the hairpin bend when coming up from the Middleborough Road underpass to the trail behind Box Hill High School. There’s new concrete, but the hairpin bend still has a steep rise, so spread out, select lowest gear and take it carefully!
