New book for bike riders

This book which has just been published contains nine A4 sized maps, showing 16 road rides. There are detailed route descriptions, elevation profiles and local photographs.

The rides are on surfaced roads, suitable for road bikes, gravel bikes, hybrids or MTBs. All start and finish at Maldon Post Office but they are out-and-back or loop rides, so you can start at other points on the route if you like. Many of the rides are via Castlemaine. 

Rides are of varying distances and difficulty from a short one around the town of Maldon to several about 100 km long. They cover a wide area from Bridgewater to Daylesford and Maryborough to Leanganook (Mount Alexander).
