Hi there

My names's Ash, I just found this community and it looks great!

Currently I ride to work and a bit on the weekends around the city and inner suburbs but me and a friend are looking at going on a bit of a day trip bike ride somewhere in the next couple of weeks, possibly somewhere with a swimming hole or something like that?

Just thought I would ask on here in case anyone had any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks heaps,

Ash

Along the Yarra or Merri Creek is usually a nice ride and avoids the roads. I sometimes see people swimming where they meet at Dights Falls.

Along the Yarra it's roughly 13km from Flinders Street Station. The total distance from the heads to Dights Falls is about 22km. At a leisurely pace this would take an hour non-stop, or half an hour going flat out. I recommend taking it bit slower anyway as there are some blind corners and tight bends, and it's mostly a shared path going both ways.

If you want a shorter ride there are plenty of short cuts, though away from the river, and for a longer ride explore Yarra Bend.

ok cool thanks heaps, i reckon it could be good to have a bit of a longer ride but maybe we should start small and work up as well! :)
