Great areas to ride I mean... I always knew I lived in a beautiful area, but now that I ride, I appreciate it in a whole new way. I live between Blackwood and Greendale VIC, tucked away in the Wombat state forest. Last night hubby and I went for a ride to an area we have not explored before. A few back roads led us to the most beautiful little areas. STEEP hills, which really gave me a good chance to practice some new skills. That was fun, but did have my heart in my mouth at times! Check out the google map link to see the extreme twisties, although the map does not show how extreme it was. I can't get into google earth so it might give a better view on that. http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=glenmore+vic&sll=-25.335448,135.745076&sspn=38.287259,56.162109&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Glenmore+Victoria&ll=-37.717097,144.264393&spn=0.066402,0.109692&t=h&z=13 It was then a slow cruise though Glenmore then onto Rowsley then back into Bacchus Marsh, the Western Highway and home again. Who knew that these little treasures were so close to home.
