North Rd to Frankston Ride
View a larger map
This ride is a great opportunity to jump on your road bike and join the hundreds of other cyclists on the world famous cycling route between North Rd and Frankston. We begin at the end of North Rd where you can either park in the council car park near the beach or look for a free park in one of the nearby streets.
We head straight down Beach to Mordialloc where we usually stop for a drink and a chance to regroup. There is a great bike shop here with a fascinating collection of bike gear to help you pass a few tantalising minutes. Then it’s back on the bikes, around the round about (be very careful) and head along Nepean Hwy for a few hundred metres before turning left and crossing the railway line to the much quieter service road on the North side of the tracks. There is a good bike line here and you can follow this road all the way to the Carrum Creek, where you cross the pedestrian bridge and continue for another couple of kilometres until you reach the T intersection. From here we simply follow the Highway all the way to Frankston.
If you turn left at the Macdonalds intersection you can ride a few hundred metres to the centre of the “coffee precinct” of Frankston where there are plenty of good eateries. After lunch we ride straight back down the highway until you get back to the start. There are no major hills on this ride, but the traffic can be heavy, so TAKE CARE. Watch out for parked cars alongside the road and also for car doors being opened unexpectedly.
