Brisbane Hill Road is a short, sharp & brutal climb up the lower slopes of Mount Donna Buang. Although a dead end road it is certainly worth testing yourself out on.
Brisbane Hill Road climb
The climb starts at the intersection of Brisbane Hill Road & Dammans Road.
Keep an eye out for traffic on this road due to the fact that its quite narrow. This is a challenging climb with pinches hitting close to 20% in parts.
This climb will be introduced to a world of new riders as it is featured in the 2015 Melbourne Dirty Dozen. The great thing about an event like this is it opens riders eyes open to a great network of climbs that they didn’t know existed, & really encourages people to get out their comfort zone & try new climbs. Warburton already has a reputation as being one of Victoria’s most popular country towns to ride around, which with bike events such as the Dirty Dozen, Ole Dirty & Vertical K will continue to attract more & more riders to this amazing area.
