Day 1

Let the games begin!

November 7, 2020 / Difficulty
/ Distance 45km

Welcome to Melbourne and the start of your Amy’s Gran Fondo experience!

The Mummu Cycling team will greet you at 9.30am at Melbourne airport or at the Factor Bikes headquarters in Gardenvale where free parking is available through to the end of your trip.

We will then transfer 150km to Lorne via private minibus.

On arrival, take some time to check-in and settle before meeting your dedicated mechanic for the weekend who will assist with bike set-up, so you’re raring to go for ‘race day’ tomorrow!

This afternoon, you’ll then be guided by your pro host on a gentle course recon ride along part of tomorrow’s Gran Fondo route.

A great opportunity to spin the legs post travel and get a feel for what lies ahead tomorrow. Our Mummu support vehicle will be with you at all times providing mechanical assistance where needed, with water, electrolytes and ride nutrition at the ready.

On arrival back to the hotel, enjoy some time to yourself to relax and unwind before regathering for this evening’s group welcome nutritious ‘pre-race’ dinner. Here, you’ll be joined by a local expert to analyse the course and share some professional advice on how best to tackle tomorrow’s ride. Cheers to what we expect will be an epic day out!

*Our team will have all race numbers and entry packs collected, handed out and ready to go throughout the day for you.

Day 2

Amy's Gran Fondo 'Race Day'!

November 8, 2020 / Difficulty
/ Distance 130km / 1903m

This morning, enjoy a substantial carbohydrate rich breakfast as you’re in for a big day on the pedals!

Once fuelled and ready to rock, you will be guided by our team on bikes down to the start-line within close proximity to the hotel.

Please note that the race will have adequate support and feed zones along the route and roads will be completely closed for the event’s entirety.

The Mummu support team will also never be far out of sight, providing mechanical support, ride nutrition and drinks at the start, mid-course and finish line.

The race get underway from 7.30am, with separate time slots following for different categories. Once on the road, prepare yourself for 130km of truly exquisite riding, paired with a healthy dose of climbing!

It won’t be an easy roll out as off the line, you’ll almost immediately start gradually climbing as you venture inland North West and tackle the first of two KOM’s along the route, Benwerrin Peak. Summiting at 11km in, you’ll enjoy the lengthy descent that follows. Be sure to take-in the incredible scenery as you make your way through the Otways, sheltered by rainforest and surrounded by spectacular countryside.

Soon enough, you will gradually start climbing again until you reach KOM 2, Mount Sabine Peak at 75km. From there, the hard work is done. Enjoy a much deserved descent, before approaching the beautiful Great Ocean Road. Sea breeze, insane coastal views and mostly flat terrain for the final 45km will have you crossing the finish line back in Lorne on Cloud 9!

Our support team will be waiting with a deserved cold beverage at the Mummu marquee, where you can kick back, toast to your efforts and share your days stories with fellow guests.

Once you’ve had some time to refuel and unwind, we’ll return to the hotel.

Relax and freshen up, before meeting our mechanic who will pack down/assist you with bike dismantle (for those not wanting to ride tomorrow morning).

We’ll then meet-up for this evening’s farewell group dinner and enjoy a toast to what we expect has been an epic, yet memorable day out on the bike!
