Kangaroo Creek


This can be a busy road, so ensure you give yourself plenty of space as you make your way up - mornings are often a good time for lower levels of traffic at the start of your ride, but motorists will also be taking the opportunity to start their day in the hills too. The challenge of Gorge Road is its length. The Kangaroo Creek climb is only 4.65% over 3.59km, but you'll spend a good 10km getting to the final crest.
