Amy’s Great Ocean Road 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, Amy’s Great Ocean Road 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 2020 Age Category Event sees riders race in the UCI World Gran Fondo Series over 130km of the spectacular Surf Coast and Colac Otway Shires in Victoria – one of two events permitted to close the Great Ocean Road. Participants in the Age Group event will go in the running to qualify for the 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships with the top 20% in each age group being invited to the 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.
