Bicycle Network: 50km ride (4115)
The popular 50km ride distance takes riders from Alexandra Gardens to Altona and back. With the major draw card being you'll get the rare opportunity to ride over the iconic Westgate Bridge.
Ride features: Climbing the Westgate Bridge
New for 2017, the 50km ride option is riding along Racecourse and Altona Rd on your way to Altona. That's 3km more of park and coastal roads and less main roads.
The Westgate Bridge can be daunting, but there is nothing to fear it's a short climb. Once you’ve reached the top, you’ll be greeted with stunning views of Melbourne and Port Phillip Bay. If you do the training and preparation, the Westgate Bridge will be a piece of cake and you'll just have to worry about taking in the gorgeous views.
