  • Big arse true back country Otway trails
  • Famous Forrest single track
  • Old Beechy Rail Trail
  • Ride along sections of The Great Ocean Road
  • Turton's Track
  • Plunge deep into the depths of the best of the Otways
  • Do all this with a mate or race buddy
  • Strictly limited places for 150 teams

This 2 day event is designed to not only showcase the best of our back yard, but to challenge the toughest of riders.

$495 for a team of 2
$710 for a team of 3

What does it mean to race pairs in the O300?

Find a riding partner that will ride 300km with you over 2 days with similar goals and pace, they can be male or female and you will find a category to suit you.
We have also opened the event in 2017 to TRIPLES! For the bunch of friends that just cant find 2 pairs but definitely want to race together as mates.
Triples is for you!
$495 for a team of 2
$710 for a team of 3

Nothing better than a visual interpretation of what to expect on both days for the Otway300 - day 1 and day 2.
Enjoy!
