The end

It is with great sadness that I announce that I am unable to continue with this blog.

To all of the wonderful people who have followed this blog, I would love to extend a big thank you all for being on this amazing journey with me that started way back in 2014. My vision was to create a site that others could use to find many of the wonderful places out there to ride. I fell in love with cycling, and was really fortunate to have been able to inspire so many people to get out there to ride, and cannot begin to thank you enough for all the warm support that has been offered to me over the years.

To all of those who have helped in any way with the Dandenong Ranges.  You guys are legends, and I’ve never been able to thank you all enough.

Due to personal reasons and the need to spend more time with my family I must bid you all a fond adieu.

All good things must come to an end, and those that know me, know that I love a good climb. The next time you pit yourself against a formidable climb. Remember the Dandenong Ranges and what it stood for, and get out there to ride.

    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.
    Regards
    Michael

    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.

    I hope you can change your mind and do this blog again. I felt very uncomfortable reading what people were writing about you, and cannot begin to fathom how that must have felt to you. I’m disgusted with the way that the cycling community treated you, particularly with what you’ve done for it!
    I never met you, but your blog, your pictures, your stories made a real difference to me, and helped me find some great places to ride, I hope that you can return to doing what you do best one day
    Love
    Sarah 🙂
