Not a difficult ride and could suit beginners, however this road can be busy on weekends and during holiday periods - particularly over summer.
• Begin the ride at the roundabout in the centre of town.
• Leave Mansfield by traveling South along Highett Street.
• Turn right into Malcolm Street and follow the straight, flat section out to Howes Creek Road and turn left.
• Follow Howes Creek Road all the way out to the end of the tar seal and turn around and head back into Mansfield.
Note - For some short, sharp hill practice on the way back, turn left into Campagnolos Road and ride out to the Mansfield resort and back.
