Biker's Notes : Capital City Trail

The Capital City Trail is a loop around the city, around 32 kms of established tracks suitable for running, walking, biking (any bike types) or just for sightseeing :) It goes along the water - the Yarra river, some creeks - and gives a quick tour around some of Melbourne's top spots like Southbank, Collingwood Children's Farm (a farm in the city!), Docklands, Telstra Dome, Zoo and Royal Park, Yarra Bend Park, Melbourne Park, Alexandra Gardens and MCG.

There are areas where one needs to lift the bike to go walk through some steps (extra points for variety!?). The farm was a good stop, offering organic food, freshly baked bread, muffins and scones , organic eggs (and chocolate milkshake!).

the farm under sunny skies (but awfully cold wind!) and today's special, baked egg with slow cooked mushrooms and capsicum

Some sights :

Dight's Falls
(it may not look like too much of a falls but apparently it sits on an 800,000 year old lava rock)

[ Edit : Had received additional helpful links - Check out more details here and here. Not mentioned in the original post was that we had cycled a bit more than the kms mentioned as there was a re-routing somewhere in Westgarth - and I think we took a couple more turns than required and ended up somewhere farther north towards the Merri Creek trail. Hehe. ]


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
