This is a ride from Ballan to Lara through the Brisbane Ranges, visiting the historic gold mining town of Steiglitz.

The general tendency of the ride is downwards, from Ballan at an enormous 530 m to Lara at 30 m.  It's all on sealed roads apart from the section from the lookout to Steiglitz, which is on a good quality unsealed road.  There are three choices of road so we can make the unsealed section shorter or longer, but the more asphalt the longer and the less scenic the ride becomes.  The last part of the ride to Lara is through fairly flat farmland.
