CyclingTips and Limelight Sports invite you to join us on Sunday November 26, 2017 for the third annual Giro della Donna Gran Fondo. Brace yourselves; it’s gonna be a cracker of a day if last years event was anything to go by. Visityarravalley.com.au are a proud sponsor and we’re pleased to welcome all cyclists back to the region that boasts the closest Alpine climbs to Melbourne.
Starting in the township of Warburton, Victoria and finishing at the top of Mt. Donna Buang, the Giro della Donna features one of the most spectacular cycling routes in Australia.
Over 107km of closed and traffic-managed roads, you’ll climb more than 2,700 metres, including the gruelling (and stunning) 20km Reefton Spur ascent and a true mountain-top finish at Mt. Donna Buang. The addition of a 13km gravel section along the stunning Acheron Way makes this route a challenge for any cyclist, but one that can be enjoyed by all.
With a respectful nod to the Italian champions of years gone by, the challenging terrain of the ‘Strade Nero’, and the epic climbs of the Giro d’Italia, the Giro della Donna will be a day that memories are made of.
So don’t be part of the grupetto: register now to secure your place amongst the peleton. Numbers are strictly limited.
When: Sunday November 26, 2017
Where: Warburton, Victoria, Australia
Who: Anyone who appreciates the challenge and beauty of one of Australia’s best cycling routes.
