Torbreck Snow Hike

Visiting : Mt Torbreck Distance : 9km When : Sunday 20th August 2017, 8:00am @ Conns Gap Road Winter 2017. So much snow. I was keen to get right amongst it but I also wanted to avoid… well… humans. I figured a solo hike up Mt Torbreck would fit the bill. Another bike ride with […]


Visiting : Mt Torbreck Distance : ~40km ride, ~4.5km hike When : Saturday 20th December 2014, 6:30am @ Eildon Mt Torbreck has been on my radar for a long time now. It’s the westernmost mountain in Victoria over 1500 metres and it sits somewhat removed from its neighbours so it stands to reason that the […]

Visiting : Circuit Road, Howitt Spur, Crosscut Saw, Mt Speculation Distance : 54km When : Wednesday 5th December, 6:30am @ Speculation Road For quite a few years now I’ve had the idea of traversing from Mt Howitt to Mt Speculation along the Crosscut Saw in packbike style, with my disassembled bike on my back.

Lady Rubicon

Visiting : Lady Talbot Drive, McFadyen Track, Rubicon Valley Distance : 97km When : Saturday 29th October 2016, 5:45am @ Marysville (Note: This is another solo ride from my backlog. Bear with me as I’m writing this well after the fact and my memory may be hazy.) Wow. I can’t believe it’s been almost a […]

Skenic Sunrise

Visiting : Mt Skene, Lazarini Spur Distance : ~105km ride When : Saturday 21st February 2015, early @ Jamieson Continuing the theme of slacker rides with seemingly more driving than riding, I decided to check out a climb that I’ve been hearing about for years now but have somehow managed to dodge despite multiple invitations […]
