Ride your way past icons of Melbourne, past bright boxes on the beach before the roses you do reach, beneath the swaying palm trees and the deep blue seas.

The 160km Rosebud return showcases the best of Melbourne’s bayside suburbs. You’ll ride along Beach Road and the Nepean Highway through Mordialloc, Frankston, Mt Martha and the Mornington Peninsula to Rosebud before returning back to Melbourne.

The gradient is relatively flat with just over 800 metres of climbing. The steepest parts of the ride are at Oliver’s Hill (600 metres of climbing at 6%), Balcombe Hill (roughly 2.4km of climbing at 4.4%), and a gradual climb with some rollers thrown in for 6km as you come out of Mornington and head towards Frankston.
