CyclingTips and SME360 invite you to join us on 24 & 25 November 2018 for the third annual Giro della Donna Gran Fondo. Visit Yarra Valley are a proud sponsor and we’re pleased to welcome all cyclists back to the region that boasts the closest Alpine climbs to Melbourne.
We have some fantastic changes to announce for 2018. With a new event village location, closed and managed roads, new event timing, kids activities, a race component, an afternoon cyclocross race, entertainment across the weekend, and a new shortly ride option (announced soon), this is the Giro della Donna like you’ve never seen it before!
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 120km of closed and traffic-managed roads, you’ll climb more than 2,750 metres, including the gruelling (and stunning) 20km Reefton Spur ascent and a true mountaintop 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.
