CyclingTips invites you to join us on Sunday November 22, 2015 for the inaugural Giro della Donna Gran Fondo. Brace yourselves; it’s gonna be a cracker of a day and we’re excited to give something back to the cycling community who has given us so much.
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.
We’ve always loved this loop and dreamt of hosting a Gran Fondo here. Now, after months of work behind the scenes, it’s finally come to fruition.
So don’t be part of the grupetto: register your interest to gain an early invite for this event. Numbers are strictly limited.
When: Sunday November 22, 2015
Where: Warburton, Victoria, Australia
Who: Anyone who appreciates the challenge and beauty of one of Australia’s best cycling routes.
