FUN FACT: A ‘Gran Fondo’ is an age-old Italian cycling term, meaning ‘great endurance’.
What is the Wiggle Amy's Gran Fondo?
Amy’s Gran Fondo is Australia’s most scenic cycling event. Catering to cyclists of all abilities, the event is held on fully closed roads in one of the most picturesque destinations on the planet – the Great Ocean Road, Victoria. With almost 10,000 riders taking part in the last two years, it has established itself as one of the most popular mass participation bike rides in the country, attracting cyclists from across Australia and internationally. It also includes a weekend of family-friendly activities that makes Amy’s Gran Fondo not just an event, but an experience.
