Anglesea MTB single tracks (Sunday 18th Nov 9.30 am)
Anglesea MTB single trails Departure time on bikes. 9.30am, Sunday 18th Nov The plan: With the ride we shall do the loops of these little known single trails, it is a pleasant setting with flowing tracks, with enough interesting sections to entertain even the hardened MTBer. The trails are a bit like the Forrest trails, for those that have never tried these trails before. The idea is to spend around 2.5 hours or so (including stops) in this part of the forest, being on the southern side of the Torquay / Anglesea Road. Those that wish to do more we can also do the downhill section on the northern side of this road that is not so difficult. This will take around 1 hour or so total (including stops). You may chose to undertake the first part and decide on the day if you wish to continue onto the second part. Grading: A fairly good level of fitness required. The ride is not so suitable for outright beginners due to the type of terrain. Type of bike A dually or quality hard tail is required (however please note a downhill bike is not suited for these kind of rides). What to bring: Usual bike spares, and snacks for ride itself, as well as say two water bottles, and or camelback. Note there is no water at rides start or during the ride. Directions to start point: With the newly completed Geelong Ring Road, getting to Anglesea is much easier and faster. Take the Ring Road around Geelong, and continue onto the Anglesea Road till you get to the Great Ocean Road, turn right and continue towards Anglesea. You first pass by the Bells Beach turn off, followed by the Point Addis Road turn off. Stay on the road you are on for just on 1 klm, and turn left (Hurst Road) at the end of the armco fencing being the first road on your left after the Point Addis turn off. There is a small sign indicating Hurst Road. Note: After you pass the Point Addis turn off, best to drop your speed, as this turn off comes up before you know it. Just as you turn onto Hurst Road, you will see a couple options to park, the single trail starts just a hundred meters or so from the main road. If you pass Elkington Road (coming from Melbourne) on your right you have gone too far by one small road, if you come to Forest Road on your right you have gone way too far. If you find yourself in Anglesea, buy a burger and have a swim LOL. As a driving time indication, allow up to 1 hr 15 mins from Westgate Bridge, if coming from that direction. Look for a white Ford Focus, and a guy 6' 4. that's me. I recommend taking a copy of the directions above with you, as on a number of rides people have just set their GPS, only to end up else where (not a good start for all).

https://www.facebook.com/CyclingVictoriaOffRoad/

We're here to discover and enjoy the trails, tracks, paths, rail trails and roads throughout Victoria, with the occasional interstate or overseas trip. From short social rides, all day or weekend trips, getting muddy on Mountain Bike trails, even the odd road ride, we try to cater to everyone's needs. We also run irregular Beginner MTB days and Bike Maintenance Workshops.

Suitable for everyone, regardless of bicycle type*, riding style or fitness level*. We welcome and encourage input and suggestions from all of our members. Anyone can help create and/or host a CVOR event. Our Membership and Events are free, except when we need to pay 3rd parties for transport, coaching, equipment or accommodation.

We have forums help inform members of great places to ride, events to attend, how to keep your bike running smoothly, new products, where to get the best prices, safety issues and any other chats related to cycling.

We provide the Meetup website platform as a free service to our members, however the website does charge us a fee. So please consider the option of a small donation to help us cover the bi-annual website fees.

E-Bikes may be used on our events, however they must be "Pedal Assist", and a commercially built E-Bike with a 250w and 25km/h restriction. Petrol powered bicycles are not permitted to be used on our events at any time.
