Family & Kids’ Ride
Friday 26 January (Afternoon*)
FREE Event

Inspiring  a new generation of cyclists!

The Family Ride gives kids, mums and dads, older family members and friends the opportunity to ride a closed, short looped “hotdog” section of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race course. Riders make their way along the Eastern Beach waterfront with their idol Cadel Evans, and experience the thrill of riding through the Finish gantry.

Across a two hour period, you can ride for as little or as long as you like, experiencing the excitement of riding on the course and under the finish gantry for one lap or 10 laps.

*Times are subject to change, registered participants notified by email.




“The Family Ride is one of my favourite parts of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. I love seeing the kids’ enthusiasm for a sport that has and always will be a huge part of my life.” — Cadel Evans
