From Port Campbell a climb of Lavers Hill from the west to Beech Forest and return to Port Campbell. Then along the Great Ocean Road to Peterborough to view the spectacular Bay of Islands coastline to Nullawarre and home via the Boggy Creek Pub at Curdievale.
Starting from Deep Water Point down onto the cycle path until Anketell Rd. Its not long before you are on quiet farm roads, warming the legs up for the first of many climbs. The climb up to the old timber town of Jarrahdale has a few downs too. Mostly in wooded areas once the few farms are past at the start of the climb. The road to Albany Hwy is undulating in an upwards direction? Rolling hills soon get you off the Hwy and again your into some very stunning scenic riding roads, & a dam. A very short distance on Brookton Hwy then its right and your into orchard country, with a few hills thrown in to keep you warm. The top of Patterson rd is a welcome point as its now a fast descent be very carefull. Mundaring Weir Rd is cycling heaven, lots of nice views but you may miss the weir if your fast down the hill. Through Parkerville & into the John Forrest National Park, the road is a little rough but the vistas make up for the bumps. Very fast decent down Greenmount Hill, carefull not to miss the turn off! Some quiet roads back through old Guilford Town then on to the cycle path all the way back to the finish, going past the new stadium & having loads of views of the Swan River & Perth City
