Riding Lake Mountain
Lake Mountain is the closest 7 Peaks Ride to Melbourne. Start the ride in Marysville and climb a challenging 21km to the resort village. Reaching grades of up to 10%, the first 4km up Robley Spur is the most sustained and steepest part of the whole ascent. Once you reach the top of the spur the stunning views from the lookout across the Cathedral Range are your bonus. A short downhill section, rolling climbs and flatter areas, break up the ride, before the last gentle climb to the village.

Cycling Inform Ride Tips
The first 4.4 km of the climb is most challenging with gradients up to 10%. The climb then flattens with enough downhill sections to catch your breath. About half way up you turn left to Lake Mountain where there are a mix of easy gradients and flat sections until the summit.
It’s a good idea to start this climb having already warmed up your leg muscles.
