Weekend rides in Melbourne?

Discussion in 'Roads, Touring, Journeys, and Travel' started by YammyBase, Jun 8, 2015.

  1. I live in Sydney and am looking into relocating to Melbourne.

    Call me weird but one of the deciding factor for me is "does Melbourne have good roads like Sydney for weekend rides?"

    Looking to see if Melbourne has putty road, wisemens ferry, National park equivalent.

    Cheers guys.

  2. Short answer is YES!!!!!!

    MAP - Bumpy bits are good.

  3. Best close to Melbourne rides are to the east, north east and in Gippsland, so its good if you live that side of town. To the west tends to be a bit flat and boring, apart from the GOR.
  4. Oh lord do we have good roads! Hallejulah....

    Plenty in areas as mentioned by twistngotwistngo above. Both short and long day trips, plenty of overnighters and more.
  5. We have more twisties than your local 7-11!
  6. And better coffee.........
