The Great Ocean Road is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 tourist drives in the world. It’s also a stunning place to cycle.
Our three day tour is designed so riders experience this incredible road with a minimum amount of traffic.
Cyclists will average 90km per day but late start and early finish options can shorten the amount of time in the saddle.
Day 1: Guests will be picked up in Melbourne, Tullamarine Airport or Avalon Airport and driven to Torquay for an early lunch. We then ride to Apollo Bay along the famous Great Ocean Road.
Day 2: Hell of the South Day. After a hearty breakfast, riders will take on the 110km Hell of the South Ride. The route heads up the Skene’s Creek Climb high into the Otway ranges and then into the rainforest for 22km of stunning riding. The road then breaks into farmland with extensive 360 degree views from the ridge top. Lunch is at Lavers Hill and this is followed by a long decent back down to sea level. The route back to Apollo Bay has a Cat 2 and Cat 3 climb before a final long decent to close the loop.
Day 3: An early start allows cyclists to avoid the day tour traffic for the final day. Strong riders can take on the previous days decent’s up to Laver’s Hill. From then on, it’s virtually all downhill or flat until our finishing point in Port Campbell. There’s some fine site seeing opportunities on the Shipwreck Coast including the 12 Apostles and London Bridge area. We finish the tour at a pizza and pasta restaurant overlooking the harbour at Port Campbell.
