Around the Bay 300km

Around the Bay 300km

Ride features

Our new 300km loop ventures through Point Nepean National Park, adding car-free roads, unrivalled coastal riding and a touch of WWII history to the fully supported ride around Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay.

You’ll tackle the famous Arthurs Seat climb with pristine 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.

All 300km riders will be able to mark their achievement with an exclusive 300km finishers jersey when they cross the finish line in Albert Park.
