I live in Narre South, and have used several ways to travel to and from either the city, or Clayton area. Hallam bypass has a good bike path alongside of it. This will get you through to Box St. Doveton, which is usually not to bad for bikes (50kph, and the cars jam up a bit). Just be careful at the roundabouts. From there you can use the Dandenong creek path to get through to Cheltenham Rd. which has a bike lane on it. At Springvale Rd. turn North and follow the Westall Rd extension which has both a bike path on the North side, (windy and bumpy), and a bike lane at the side of the road. You could follow that right up to Centre Rd. or divert down Fairbank Ave (no lane but wide), to Osborne Ave./Bourke Rd. which will take you through to Old Dandenong Rd. and the South Rd. extension which also has a path beside it. From there on follow South Rd. until you reach the area you want, and head North. Alternately I successfully used Dandenong Rd to commute along for a number of years, though not recently. I found that early in the morning it wasn't too bad. One thing to be aware of is if you are making use of the bike paths you will need good lights for seeing were you're going. Eye protection is also essential as overgrowth is rarely attended to at cyclist eye height.
