Hi all, just back from a ride out to Werribee. Was sussing out an interesting bike friendly route from the end of the Bay trail out west, where it 'ends' at Skeleton creek/Cheetham wetlands.
I rode up Skeleton creek & then hit Hacketts Rd to dive into that loveliness that is the muddy roads of agricultural Werribee South (Melbourne's own little bit of Roobaix, without the cobbles).https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/1690929164
Got a couple of questions about, what looks like, recent path infrastructure changes down that way:
Looking at maps afterwards there seems to be a gravel road/path/trail (?) that continues south of Skeleton creek, marked as 'South Saltworks Moat' on Google maps, which skirts away from Sanctuary Lakes & goes all the way to the Point Cook homestead. Is this path traffic-able by bike? Aerial view shows gates. Are they locked? Are we not to trespass?
Also, on the Fed trail, recent changes along Sneydes Rd into Hoppers Lane, a Fed Trail sign pointing west along Sneydes Rd says "Western Ring Rd 14.5kms". Is that right? If I take that route will it get me to the Western Ring Road in 14.5kms?
Sure I could always go out there & see for myself, but being a little 'time poor' at the moment, it's at least an hour to get myself out there even before I poke about & get lost & found.
Thanks for your input.
Just a bike & a place to ride.
