The Dandenongs - hard to pronounce but easy to love. Accessible by bike from the city, you’d struggle to find a Melbourne cyclist who doesn’t make at least a few trips to the Dandenongs per month. Especially popular on the weekends, riders have plenty of breathtaking (literally) climbs to choose from in a quiet, secluded, and lush forested landscape. There are also a few fantastic cafes in the mountains, guaranteeing that a post climb espresso or hot chocolate is never far away. This route takes riders through Olinda and Emerald, up wonderful climbs and down flowing descents. Riders can easily alter the route to include more climbs if desired.
