About the Dandenong Ranges

We want to inspire people to get out and find amazing new places to ride. 

Founded in 2014 by Brendan Edwards, the Dandenong Ranges is a cycling website that publishes articles on climb reviews, group rides, recreational events, suggest places to ride & we hope to inspire riders of all abilities to get out there and explore. I will also share the odd cycling story along the way.

Cycling isn’t a hobby, its a passion and if you have a cycling story that you would like to share, or feel that you have something that you could contribute to the Dandenong Ranges, get in contact and we can discuss.

    Hi Brendan, There is another nasty little dirt road climb to add to your cardinia climbing list. The Thewlis Road Climb (Backside) on Strava has a 32.6% section with a total average of 12% from bottom to top. I have ridden this a few times and it is quite difficult.

    Thanks Michael, didn’t know about that one & definitely head up there. Liking the sound of 30%. Is it similar to Berglund? Hoping to do one’s for Guy’s Hill & Gordon Road as well at some stage, & working on one on Bessie Creek Road at the moment 🙂

      The strava segment is only 0.8 km in length but in can be linked up with Bathe road to get to the top of Leppitt road. The road gravel is quite loose on the steep parts as well. I guess that aside form the length it is similar to Berglund.
