by Matt de Neef

Cyclists in Melbourne should take note of changed traffic conditions in the Dandenong Ranges this Sunday with several roads closed for The RACV Ascent women’s-only bike ride.

The ride takes place from 7am to 2pm and there are several partial and full road closures planned during that window. Among the roads to get a full road closure will be the Mountain Highway from The Basin to Sassafras, known to cyclists as The 1 in 20.

Only event participants, event vehicles, escorts and emergency services are allowed on the route. The roads are closed to all other road users.” As such, non-event cyclists won’t be able to use the 1 in 20 and other closed-road sections of the route on Sunday morning
