On the weekend of the 16 and 17 September over 6,000 riders visited the region to participate in the Amy's Gran Fondo event. The event is a cycling festival that is held in memory of Australian cycling team member Amy Gillet, who died when on a training ride in Germany in 2005. The Great Ocean Road was one of Amy's favorite places to ride.
In 2017 in response to Council's direction to develop more activities in Apollo Bay, 2 new events were held over the weekend, the Cyclo Cross and Gravel Fondo. The Medio Fondo again started in Apollo Bay and finished in Lorne.
Council is interested in hearing community feedback about the event and would appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey. This survey is open until 4pm Friday 13 October 2017.
