Riding in a big loop, thanks to Eastlink
Sunday, October 5th, 2008 at 4:28 pm
Last weekend I went on another ride with Hamish. This time in a big loop from my place, out to Eastlink, in along the Eastern, down the old outer circle railway to Alamein then across to his place in Ashwood. I then wimped out and caught the train from Jordanville to Glen Waverley instead of riding all of the way home. Despite that it was still a decent ride for me at 52km in 2.5 (riding) hours.
The night before I had worked on a second version of the camera mount, but as it ended up conflicting with my GPS unit I reverted back to the first version. However, this meant that I was able to assemble a second mount that Hamish attached to his bicycle with another secondhand camera that I had bought. Although they both required a manual trigger we got over 350 photos.
Although it isn’t the ride we did, I have drawn up the following loop that is almost entirely on offroad bicycle paths:
The following trails are used:
- Blind Creek Trail
- Eastlink Trail
- Koonung Creek Trail
- Yarra River Trail
- Anniversary (Outer Circle) Trail
- Scotchmans Creek Trail
- Dandenong Creek Trail
