Ride features

This is as big as it gets – ride around the entire Port Phillip Bay and then some. The 300km loop starts and finishes at Albert Park and heads in anti-clockwise direction towards Queenscliff where we’ll get the ferry to Sorrento.

Just when you think you’ve found your rhythm along the Mornington Peninsula, we’ll head up the famous Arthurs Seat climb. It’s a short, steep climb and makes the legs burn.

From the top we’ll be treated with views of the bay before a rewarding descent through fast-paced rolling hills towards Flinders. Rejoining the main ride at Dromana the final 50kms can’t be missed as you enjoy arguably the best of Beach Road on your return to Albert Park.
