IF

So this ride starts at sea level and goes up to about 300 m over sea level. Returning from Kalamunda there’s a fast downhill where you can easily exceed 60 km/h without┬ápedalling. Just watch for traffic in 1 or 2 roundabouts.

Road is for the most part fairly safe and broad, with generous shoulders. As usual, watch for broken glass and small branches up in the hills.
