gold trophys everywhere!! great effort, r u planning on doing this on anzac day??
Yes mate. Doing a little recon work today. The plan is 7am depart from "Diggers" Rest train station, and we'll sweep around through Gisborne and Macedon, up to the Memorial Cross, down the other side through Woodend, and back through Gisborne. Should be around 110kms/4.5 hours. If we let the wife know this far out we should be fine for the leave pass! The Mt Macedon climb is steep!
how would you compare the 5.5km steep section of mt macedon to the wall??
You cannot compare Mt Macedon South side with the Wall, especially if you get a northerly
I'm agreeing with Paul in saying the Mt Macedon south side is a fair bit harder. There's a 2km section at 13%, then 500m at 7%, then another 2km section at 14%! I went into yesterdays ride after a slack period, but I found it bloody tough, and it ends at over 1000m in altitude so it's a fair bit higher than Mt Dandenong too!
