Thank you Richard and Karen for Organising and setting this event.   And all the other volunteering your do.


Knox and Ferntree Gully area in the East of Melbourne.  For those who did the Wantirna Waddle Metrogaine and Cyclogaine in 2018 there will be a small section of the map that overlaps if you were able to reach the South East corner of that map.    This map will reach the lower sections of the Dandenongs which may squeeze the faster cycling teams to do some climbing.   The rest of this area is flat. 


The course uses question and multiple choice answer checkpoints.   The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ.  Our setter is looking for checkpoints are at points of interest.   The final course may be suitable for Road bikes.  More information once the course is set early in the new year


Based on the Melway and reproduced (with their permission) at 1:20,000 standard book scale.   Any errors found on the Map you can report to Melway.  All the street names are included but there are contour lines are not shown.
