City cyclists love heading out to the tiny town of Kinglake on long weekend rides to tackle the famous 7km Kinglake segment. A smooth road with a steady incline, riders enjoy powering up this climb to the summit, which has fantastic views on a clear day. Although one ascent is challenging, many pros venture out to do multiple hill repeats up this iconic hill. Devastated by the Black Saturday bushfires in 2009, the Kinglake landscape is incredibly unique while the rolling countryside on the way back to Melbourne makes this climb part of an all-around sensational ride.
