uhhh... there are LOTS of fire roads to ride around Lysterfield and you can piece them together into any kind of loop. Of course the most common and most boring would be the Lake Circuit. This and lots of others are boring as flying rodent poopies, but there are some pretty good ones.....http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/__data/assets ... tracks.pdf
A couple that come to mind.....
- West Boundary Track
- From the bottom of Blair Witch back up to the HNR carpark is a really decent climb. Moderate grade, long-ish and slightly technical so it's not boring.
- Quarry Track
- Rode this in a race a few years ago, so memory of this trail is blurred by a red mist.... not overly technical, but there were some rolling hills, with a couple of little pinches. Was riding the rigid singlespeed, so my interpretation of rolling hills might be a bit skewed
- Lysterfield Hills Track
- basically the climb up to Trig Point that runs next to Comm Game track. Not technical, but very steep. Also very exposed so can get hot. Also an entry point into Churchill Park, which has some more interesting fire trails, not all of which are open to bikes.
- Glen Track
- There's a summit here near the top of... err... Redgum? or Middle? trail. Each of the approaches to the summit offers some interesting climbing of various degrees of difficulty. If I recall, the climb on the East West approach is the hardest. http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/__data/assets ... ill-NP.pdf
North side of Wellington Road - this is a great place to ride if it's wet, as most of the Lysterfield MTB trails don't handle water very well (it's pretty bad for the trails themselves). some very decent climbs, opening up into views of the whole area (obviously where you see lookouts marked). There have in the past also been some illegal trails out this way, but Parks shuts them down pretty quick smart.
