You can do it all the way on bike paths
if you like.
Just follow the Eastern Freeway & Eastlink paths until you cross Canterbury Road and go past the Ringwood Golf course (with the big nets). At this point you have to do a bit of a horseshoe turn to get across the creek and keep heading east towards Bayswater & on to The Basin. See the bridge at Melways 63 D3.
