Takes all kinds - clearly overestimated his abilities. I certainly don't ! :D

Not this weekend - the Mountain Hwy will be closed due to storm damage, along with a few other roads in the Dandenong Ranges.

No one should be riding up here right now. You're not allowed to come up and it is not safe. Plus well and truly going to piss off the locals.
I have seen some cyclists on the Tourist Rd but considering the police is stopping and checking everyone, I assume they are local.

Good to go up to Sassafras again.
You cannot go to Olinda, well there is a check point in Sassafras.

The last update looks even better:
https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/newsmed ... -dandenong

It seems to indicate that, from today (unless circumstances changed), roads are open along the main 4 ascents, i.e. from Upper Ferntree Gully, Montrose, The Basin and Monbulk, right up to Ridge Rd. No mention of the observatory in this article, though.

All roads open as of yesterday (Fri).
No check points anymore.
