The newest big mountain bike
challenge to hit The Otways.
Imagine... your base is in the mountain bike mecca of Forrest, over 2 days we take you through some of the biggest parts of the Otways Ranges, covering some 300km and climbing more than 6000m.
This is not for the faint-hearted... are you up for it?
1 - 2 April 2017
The O300 starts and finishes in Forrest each day.
Forrest is approx 2hrs SW of Melbourne, located in the foothills of the Otways.
The concept, like many great ideas...think Albert Einstein, “I thought of that whilst riding my bicycle” , the O300 was devised whilst Jess Douglas, the course creator was actually out riding the routes you are about to embark on over 2 days.
The ridgeline that separates the southern ocean and the idyllic farmland of the Otway region contours the coastline for over 200kms.
The ranges majestically overlook the ocean, reaching heights of more than 600mts above sea level. You will find subtropical rainforest, towering gum trees, authentic Australian native bush, plantations and edged with fluorescent green pastures on one side, with a the beautiful coastline that boasts the Great Ocean Road on the other.
You can ride as hard as you and your partner like, but we do ask that you look up and take it in, even on some of the long climbs remember how awesome this journey is.
Once you start riding you will understand why...yes it’s for the challenge, how much climbing you can endure, how many kilometers you can travel and in what time, yes it’s all that, but it’s for the experience, the journey, the excuse to ride your bike in a beautiful place and have us do all the planning for you.
We hope you enjoy riding it as much as we enjoyed creating it.
