The Geelong Cycling Club, in partnership with The Store Deans Marsh, is incredibly excited to bring you the Deans Marsh Gravel Classic. Hosted at the emerging hub of Victorian gravel riding, just 130km south west of Melbourne, the 57km circuit race on fringes of the Otway Ranges features 60% class A Otway gravel. Deans Marsh is quickly establishing itself as the destination for gravel cycling cycling in Victoria. And why not! Lose yourself on the undulating roads of the rainforest, challenge your legs on some of the grittiest climbs in Victoria or daydream as you roll along with the plantations and even the sleepy giant redwoods as you venture a bit further abroad.
We are bringing you 6 classes of classic gravel senior racing, junior classes and a social class for novices or those who just want to slow down and enjoy a supported roll across the gravel roads with like minded enthusiasts.
