Nomads Outdoors Group – A Good Friday Bike Ride: Boronia – Blind Ck – Dandenong Ck – Carrum

March 29

Join the Nomads Friday cycling group on Good Friday. This will be quite a scenic ride, almost entirely off-road, following the Blind Creek and Dandenong Creek to Carrum (by which point the Dandenong Creek has been renamed to Patterson River).

GRADE | LENGTH | TYPE: Medium to Hard cycling tour of approximately 44 km, being 28 km to lunch, then a further 16 km to Carrum. One of the reasons for the Medium to Hard grading is that we’ll be trying to get to the lunch spot before it becomes too crowded! It will be possible to exit at Dandenong Station (approximately 3 km after lunch). For the route, see Boronia – Blind Ck – Dandenong Ck – Carrum.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION: From Boronia Station we’ll cycle along the trail beside the Belgrave train line to get to Blind Creek, then follow the Blind Creek Trail to where it joins the Eastlink Trail. From there, we follow the Eastlink and Dandenong Creek Trails to our lunch spot, the Dandenong Workers Club, 52-70 Wedge St, Dandenong, which is located right beside the cycling path. After lunch, we’ll continue along the Dandenong Creek Trail to Carrum. It’s going to be reasonably warm, so you can optionally enjoy a dip at the beautiful Carrum Beach prior to catching a train from Carrum Station. Whenever you’re ready to head towards the CBD, trains depart from Carrum Station every 10 minutes. You could of course also ride home via the Bayside Trail if you want to get a really good workout!
