Ride your way past icons of Melbourne, past the high fliers of Avalon and the sands of Portarlington, taking in Oliver’s view from the hill and cruising past as the beach-goers chill.

The big one – the 250km loop traces the entire coastline of Port Phillip Bay as it journeys via the Bellarine Peninsula, Queenscliff, Sorrento and the Mornington Peninsula before heading back to Melbourne along the iconic Beach Road.

This option is relatively flat, with an odd little bump, as well as rollers and false flats, which contribute to 1,000 metres of elevation gain.

The steepest sections are when you ride out of Geelong into Drysdale with roughly 1.2kms of climbing, then a gradual climb with some rollers thrown in for 6km as you come out of Mornington and head towards Frankston.

Extra rider services

Valet service

The valet service is available for all 210km and 250km riders passing through Sorrento or Queenscliff.

We’ll transport an A4-sized satchel for you from the start line to your lunch stop and back again. You can use it to carry a fresh kit, extra tubes or a favourite snack.

You will also receive a second satchel to return anything back to the finish. Previous riders have used this return service to transport spare tubes they don’t need or warm layers. Return valet bags will be collected at the finish site in Melbourne.
