The situation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is evolving rapidly. Our highest priority at the moment is to maintain the health and safety of our participants, staff and volunteers.
In light of the state of emergency declared by Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews, and the ban on gatherings of 500+ persons, The Great Ocean and Otway Classic will not be held on the 18th of April 2020, and is now postponed to 24th of April 2021.
Registered participants have been sent further correspondence via email/text. Please email email@example.com if you are unable to locate this communication.
If you are looking to ride the Great Ocean Road in 2020 we recommend our partner event Amy’s Great Ocean Road Gran Fondo held on the 13th Sep 2020. Please come and support the Great Ocean & Otway Classic in 2021 – all events will need support to continue beyond this period.
