AMY’S GREAT OCEAN ROAD GRAN FONDO IS THE SAFEST AND MOST SPECTACULAR AUSTRALIAN CYCLE EVENT – FEATURING FULLY CLOSED ROADS OF THE VICTORIAN GREAT OCEAN ROAD & OTWAYS.
A ‘Gran Fondo’ is an age-old Italian cycling term, meaning ‘great endurance’. Traditionally a Gran Fondo is a timed event that has a scenic, challenging, mountainous course. The distance, terrain and sensational scenery of the Surf Coast and Colac Otway regions makes for a challenging ride and the ideal location for a Gran Fondo.
The 2021 Age Category Event sees amateur riders race in the UCI World Gran Fondo Series with the top 20% in each age group being invited to the following year’s UCI Gran Fondo Series World Championship Event. Whether taking up the invitation or not, the honour of being a qualifier is highly sought after and something to be proud of achieving (Age Groups listed down the page). This Age Category Event is open to all riders aside from the list at page bottom.
Riders receive ‘best in class’ event support with; Full Road Closures via Traffic Management, Aid Stations (food and drink) x 4 locations on course, Mobile Mechanics on course, Medical Resources & (if required) Bus Sag Wagon Return to Start Line. Additional to these elements, there are multiple layers of Police, Council and Event Management Resourcing on the event to ensure your ability to safely race.
