ZigZag Ride, WA, Australia

This ride starts at the foot of the Perth hills, heading up Maida Vale road to the well known climb “the ZigZag”. It has 5 switchbacks and stunning views at the top, the climb was used in the 2016 Gran Fondo World championships held in Perth WA. Although the section leading up to the actual ZigZag is steeper, it is missing the views, the ride carries along the top of the hill to Kalamunda and then onto Lesmurdie before a fantastic descent back down to the Hartfield Golf club.
