Hello all Until recently I was planning a scenic ride from Melbourne to Brisbane once we sold our house and were ready to move up there. However, as it's taken about 2 months longer than I wanted to even get the house on the market, I figure it'd be a good idea to take the time now to ride some of the roads I had planned taking in Eastern Victoria on the ride up before the risk of ice becomes a problem. So, I'm planning a four day ride to loop through Eastern Victoria and a bit of NSW. I'll be on my C50 cruiser so will be avoiding dirt roads (though Barry Way makes me want to go out and buy something more suitable ) Large parts of the route have come from searching here and elsewhere already but thought I'd post and see if there were any great spots I was missing that I can easilly incorporate. I'd also love to hear any thoughts on accomodation in or around Tawonga, Corryong and Orbost. The plan is as follows: - Day 1: http://tinyurl.com/dkvvn7 I want to go down the road from Healsville to Toolangi again. I've always enjoyed it more than the Black Spur. This leaves me in Tawonga South for the night ready for what looks like a ripper of a ride through to Germantown and beyond in the morning. Once I get to Yea I'll be on roads I've not been down on the bike before :? Day 2: http://tinyurl.com/cjhchg Over Hotham, up the Omeo Highway to Tallangatta, north for a bit then follow the river before heading to Corryong for the night. I have to backtrack a bit the next morning but it seems to be a decent place to stay. I'm not sure about the second half of this ride. Should I follow the B400 straight to Corryong or stick to the planned route. Or maybe even head up the west side of Lake Hume and cross over near Bellbridge and then follow the river? What have others found these roads to be like? Day 3: http://tinyurl.com/cxmomd I love the comfort of my cruiser (even though it's a bit cramped after a while), but it's this day that really makes me wish I had something a little more suited to dirt roads. As it stands I still get to run through Thredbo and then loop down to Orbost. It seems a lot of the roads in this area have many unsealed sections so the options appear limited to me. Please prove me wrong Day 4: http://tinyurl.com/cck2on I must admit I've neglected the Gippsland region in my riding. I'd tend to head towards Reefton, or west to GOR if I was after a longer ride, so my knowledge of the best route home isn't the best. As it stands I've put this together but would love to hear some other ideas. There's nothing particular I want to see, just as few straight roads as possible :twisted: Any other pertinent (or otherwise) comments are also appreciated. I think I'll be leaving Tuesday week, so no Sunday drivers to slow things down either :grin: Thanks!!
