Yep. It's down the bottom here:

If that doesn't work for you let me know and I'll dig up something else.


Thank you - I managed to download the TCX file, but seemingly can't upload it into my Garmin or Strava accounts. I'll try popping it directly onto my Garmin 500 (if I can remember how to do that) and hopefully that will get me around the problem! Otherwise it might just be a case of printing off a copy of your map and then "building" it as it were in Strava as a route I'd like to do......

As a Black Knight - there weren't any of these sorts of issues back in the good ole days! I definitely think it is a case of use it or lose it!

Loved some of your photos by the way!

We seem now to have entered the era of the Melbourne Street artists. :D


As a Camberwell resident myself now you've got me intrigued!
I am obviously going to have to keep more of an eye out for what is going on in my neighbourhood!

Good idea fixie. I particularly like Einstein.

I am glad someone started posting about this ride recently, it looks good. I am thinking of doing this ride the weekend of Melburn-Roobaix registration (Sat 18/4), as the route goes very close to rego venue in Abbotsford.

I got the tcx file from your site (thanks), but the gpx file seems to be not connected to the link. No biggie I can use the tcx file to make a gpx route file for myself anyway, and change it to add a detour to coffee supreme cafe for MR registration (maybe start closer to there), and a closed loop so I ride back to my car at the end.

Does anyone know specific location of any other urban native art sites within this general area I can add to the route?

Is anyone interested in joining me or getting my gpx file?

^ I'm liking that too.

Another similar to our street art - The Squeaky Wheel's MoreArt ride for Moreland's public art show; 25 October.

Hmm, google maps tells me that's a 385km ride from here and will take approx. 19 hours 47 minutes. Bit much for me for a graffiti ride, others may have better legs or greater stamina. :D
