Amy’s Gran Fondo (Sunday 16 September) is the opportunity of the year to ride the majestic Great Ocean Road on a fully supported ride and closed to all traffic.
Yes, it's the cycling equivalent of letting the children loose in the candy store and certainly not to be missed.
Amy's Gran Fondo is a celebration of cycling. With 3 ride options, a 120km Gran Fondo course, 70km Medio Fondo course and 7km Family ride, Amy's Gran Fondo has an option suitable for every cyclist.
The fun kicks off on Saturday with the Amy's Wall hill climb competition which is designed to see who can scale the 20%+ gradient of Bay Street the fastest. You can register to enter the Amy's Wall competition now. If you not sure your up to it at least you can ride the Wall prior to the competition. See the video of the 2014 event below.
In addition to the shear pleasure of the ride, there is the all important fundraising that the event supports, The Amy Gillet Foundation. This charity directs all its activities to enhance the safety of cyclists in Australia. A most worthwhile cause.
