Route

RMIT Bundoora to Hazeldene (106km)

 

Route Description

Starting at RMIT we will head out onto Plenty Rd towards Whittlesea. We come to a right turn to Humevale Rd. Humevale Rd is a 10km slight climb recommended to ride in a single file as the road is narrow. Once you hit the top of road you will arrive back on the main road where is a public toilet at the top to regroup. Once regrouped we will head to Hazeldene for a well-earned coffee. We will head back to RMIT via the main road and not Humevale Road. 

 

Route Notes

There are a lot of road works on Plenty Road

Support Crew

When riders turn off to Humevale Rd, all support vehicles will drive to public toilets at the top of the climb via the main road instead of Humevale Road

                                    Riders will ride single breast to Hazeldene, all support cars need to drive far left lane if not pull over to allow traffic to pass
