RIDE #59 Caffeine Culture – Mansfield to Mt Buller

Mount Buller
Tourist Road Open

The official snow season is from June to October. Caution is advised for riders who opt to visit during the cooler months — because of ice on the road and also the fog that can be particularly thick can make cyclists difficult to spot.

Difficulty: Average gradient — six per cent. Max gradient — 13 per cent.

Notes: A shuttle runs from Mirimbah to the summit four times per day on weekends for riders staying in the resort. The last service leaves at 4.30pm and a trip costs $13. (Bring a cloth to protect carbon crank arms from the bike carrier.)

Total distance: 95119 m
Max elevation: 1587 m
