Another hidden gem so close to Melbourne, the area of Lancefield offers numerous road and gravel riding options.  The ancient hills of the region feature volcanic rock, grazing cattle and vineyards.  The hills are matched by beautiful, flowing country roads, perfect for a weekend canter.

If you haven't ventured to Lancefield, this ride provides a great introduction to the area.  From Lancefield, we commence with a gradual climb and rolling hills.  We will gather throughout the first part of the ride before reaching Kyneton for a well earned coffee, fuel and toilet stop.

Given the time of year, please bring good front and rear lights and bright clothing for being seen.  While drivers are courteous and familiar with cyclists, the morning fogs mean lights and bright clothing is necessary.
