Amy’s Gran Fondo

Sunday 11th September, 2022

Amy’s Gran Fondo is the ultimate road cycling challenge in Australia!

Gran Fondo means long distance or great endurance.  Gran Fondo is a 500+ year tradition that originated in Italy as a walking event, which then progressed to bicycles, and continues to be held in idyllic regions throughout the world.

Road closures will be in effect between Lorne and Apollo Bay between 5am until 3:30pm on the day of the event, with a full road closure on The Great Ocean Road between Lorne and Skenes Creek from 9:00am until 3:30pm.

As in past years, a temporary bus stop will be positioned in Lorne, and will be located in Otway St, near the roundabout and information centre.  Mountjoy Parade between Otway St and Lorne Hotel is closed to traffic.  Please note the Lorne Hotel stop will not be serviced.

Due to the road closure on the Great Ocean Rd, from Lorne to Skens Creek, and closure of Skenes Creek Road, the 9:43 service from Apollo Bay to Geelong and the 10:13am service from Geelong to Apollo Bay will travel inland via Lavers Hill.
