Wiggle Amy’s Gran Fondo is one of the few events on the Australian cycling calendar that provides the safe and unique experience of riding on a fully closed road. Coupled with a compulsory online safety briefing for all riders, Wiggle Amy’s Gran Fondo aims to be the safest event in Australia. 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 2019 event sees an additional 10km added to the course between Deans Marsh and Forrest. Although the course path towards Birregurra township has added to the overall kilometers covered, the elevation gained only varies from +1,870 m to +1,903 m in the change from the 2018 120km to the 2019 130km, showing a fast section.
Participants in the Age Group event will go in the running to qualify for the 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships with the top 25% in each age group being invited to the event.
