This one is for my sister-in-law, who has just moved to Richmond. A little bit South East of the Swan/Church intersection.
She works on Brunswick St, down the Gertrude end. She an regular but non-enthusiast cyclist (used to ride to work most of the time from Brunswick on a ~20 year old cheap step-through MTB). And she's 4 months pregnant... a condition that's going to get worse before it gets better
When I used to commute between Brunswick and South Yarra, some time last century, I used to tough it out down Church Street, after wibbling through Abbotsford to get there. Or sometimes Lennox St, over the hill past the hospital. Neither are routes I'd particularly recommend to her, being less assertive (Church) and less fit (Lennox) than most of us here.
Any suggestions on a route I could recommend to her?
