Places to learn to ride/practice in metropolitan Melbourne?

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' started by Davi5678, Aug 9, 2008.

  1. Any one know of any places where you can legally ride, without traffic to practice riding skills ?

    Preferably south east side, but not essential.

    I would especially like to find somewhere with dirt roads, or grass or a large open space with dirt?

    Currently I sometimes use the DFO carpark at moorabin after hours as it's fairly obscure from the main road to hone up and develop my bike control skills, but I would really like to find somewhere to learn to ride on dirt and get a feel for riding on a loose surface, which I feel would be beneficial for riding in the wet. (I know there not the same thing, but having confidence on the bike in loose slippery conditions would be good)

    Also if anyone wanted to meet up and come along or if anyone is interested in mentoring a small group that would be cool!
