Any advice on the best route from Oakleigh to Bayswater. I want to try a commute but am not the most confident rider on the roads.
Looked at the Scotchmans creek trail but as far as i can see from google maps it runs out at waverly road. Is there a good way to link up with the dandenong creek trail or eastlink?
Tis the way I used to ride home.
Don't take Scotchmans to Waverley Road.
Instead, there's a path that follows the train line from Holmesglen to Syndal station. Then ride to Glen Waverley Station via the road. Unfortunately if you're not confident, it means riding through the Glen Waverley area which can get a tad busy. Cross Springvale Road and you should be able to cut through side streets and aim for Shepherd Road. Note that a few of the dead ends between Springvale Rd and Gallaghers Rd are actually reserves which stop cars, but won't stop you on the bike
Right at the end of Shepherd Road is the bike path that will get you to the Eastlink Trail on George Street in Wantirna South.
