1 in 20 Road Bike Climb (The Basin)



The 1 in 20 is Melbourne’s most popular cycling climb. The 6.8 km road climb winds its way up from The Basin to Sassafras.

The climb gets its name from the average gradient. The gradient is not too severe and the challenge for many people is to post their best time.

The climb passes through fern gullies and grassy forest of the western face of Mount Dandenong.

The start point is the 60km/h sign at the end of the shops in The Basin on Mountain Highway. There is a yellow marked "start" at the edge of the road. There are regular makers each kilometre until the climb finishes at the 50km/h speed signs just before the township of Sassafras. The finish is also marked on the road in white paint.

Climb Details:
