Tour of the Great Ocean Road 2008

Will Cadel be along?

Tour of the Great Ocean Road Oct 28th, 2007 ( day after the Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic ("The Warnie" here is a history of the worlds longest one day bike race)

The course is from the fabulous coastal city of Warrnambool along the Great Ocean Road and though the Otways. A magic area to enjoy in all its glory from the rich farmlands to the beaches and fishing resorts along the way and superb bushland and mountain scenery coming into Apollo Bay, three rides to choose from 71, 120 & 168 klms giving options for relaxing, shorter rides or a diversion to a great eatery or sights.

Not a bad way to finish the Warnie weekend.

Roadie teams anyone?... maybe an Aus.bic or even a WoJ team ?, by then WoJ might even have a WoJ team kit! would be great if WoJ honorary members (like Simon Gerrans, ) were there!

Entry details here: also will aid the Amy Gillett Foundation

No info on support, ( kit, bags, etc or logistics getting to and fro just accommodation links) , riders may need a Sag Wagon for each team, but that is likely anyway for most riders visiting the Warnie.
Interesting that Caribou call it a "Recreational Ride" (for most abilities), but riders must wear a "race" number.
A superb road for recreational touring and a great venue for such a gathering... bring it on!
