From St Albans to Newport via sealed surfaces, this is a ride to swoop down the gentle descent of Western Freeway Trail. The trail has a number of inset mosaics created by clients of Adult Mental Health Rehabilitation Unit at Sunshine Hospital, and for this reason is also known as Wellness Trail. We'll make our way to the start of it by traversing back streets, paths through Jones Creek wetlands and Upper Kororoit Creek Trail. This will take us to Caroline Springs, its artificial lake and dripping tap sculpture, all part of the spectacle of our lunch stop.
From there we'll hare down Wellness, eventually joining to Federation Trail and turning East towards Altona North. Then it's a few more back streets to our final destination at Newport. It's a fairly flat ride for the most part, so a reasonably easy 35 kilometres.
