135km Geelong - Melbourne

The 135km ride starts at Rippleside Park in Geelong, travels to Queenscliff where the ferry then transports riders to Sorrento before making your way back to Melbourne via the iconic Beach Road and the finish line in Alexandra Gardens.

Ride features: Coastal and closed roads 

The 135km ride option will benefit from 17km of coastal riding between Safety Beach and Mornington, arguably the most beautiful stretch of the bay. This will include 6.5km of closed roads (north bound) between Safety Beach and Mount Martha.

The 135km ride option is relatively flat with slight inclines, rolling hills and false flats, with most occurring within the first 20 kilometres.
