Leaving from Masters Carpark, we make our way to Epping North. Using gravel roads we ride through the undeveloped area of Wollert to Craigieburn and back onto sealed surfaces. We ride on gravel tracks through the Craigieburn Grasslands, probably viewing mobs of kangaroos, then back to civilisation and sealed surfaces to a cafe stop at Roxburgh Park after 35km. The return trip is via the Rusty Bridge over the Craigieburn Bypass and along Henderson Drain.
