A’beckett Road climb

The climb starts to rise as you near the intersection of A’Beckett Road & Bailey’s Road.  Ramping up quite considerably.  The next 400 metres is quite steep as you climb through the residential part of Narre Warren North.

Start of the climb
The road is dead straight at this point, and little respite in sight.

As you approach Kennedy Avenue to the right side the road, A’beckett Road peaks at 13%.  Ahead you will see the road dip.  Visually this is misleading as you can hit a lull feeling that you’re about to receive some respite.  Its an optical illusion as the climb only dips down to 6%.  Ramping back up to 10% shortly after.

The climb goes from residential to rural in a manner of metres.  And you start to climb through farmland, and this climb can be quite dramatic in parts.

There’s a slight bend to the right of the road, and the climb hits 11% into the corner.  Thankfully it drops back down to 6% before the main part of the climb finishes at Pit Court.  The hard part of the climb is 1.4 km’s @ 6%.

If you want to add some extra vertical to this climb.  Start the climb at the corner of Memorial Drive & Main Street.  You can cheekily get a rolling start at this climb.

I prefer starting from here as you get to ride through the Avenue of Honour which commemorates World War 1.

This section is 4% gradient for 300 metres.  Turn right onto A’Beckett Road (you’ll need to check for vehicles).  Where the road flattens out for the next couple of hundred metres.

After you finish the climb, over the next 400 metres you have a slight descent.  To your left you can catch glimpses of the hills of the southern part of the Dandenong’s, and Lysterfield Lake.  You can get a chance for a good photo through here.  There are 300 metres left to climb, which does not go over 5%.  A’Beckett Road joins onto Harkaway Road.

End of the road
Unfortunately there is only a narrow ledge in parts, and there is very little shade throughout the climb.  This is a challenging climb due to the constant changes in elevation.

At the base of A’beckett Road is an incredible Bakery called Pane Difiore Bakery. Which is located at the Narre Warren North Village Centre.  This climb is worth doing just to visit this Bakery.
