Dates are locked in for the 2024 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. 

The world-class one-day classic cycling event, which features the UCI WorldTour Elite Men’s and Deakin University Elite Women’s races, will weave its way through the scenic roads of the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast regions over the January 27 – January 28 weekend. 

The scheduling will again see Australia’s premier one-day classics take centre stage and launch an action-packed international cycling calendar alongside the Tour Down Under.

The men’s and women’s classics are the major drawcards in the multi-day cycling festival and will again see Geelong’s waterfront abuzz with excitement and energy for spectators, families and cyclists alike. 

Presented by Visit Victoria, the cycling extravaganza will again feature the hugely popular TAC People’s Ride, which includes an iconic climb up Challambra, and the much-loved Family Ride along the Geelong Waterfront. 

Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events Steve Dimopoulos said:  

“We’re looking forward to seeing a sea of spectators in Geelong and the Surf Coast for the 2024 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race next January.” 

“This incredible weekend of cycling will bring thousands of visitors to the region and boost business over the long weekend while also showcasing the stunning scenery of the Great Ocean Road to viewers from around the world.” 

Since the inaugural event in 2015, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race has grown into a must-see spectacle on Australia’s cycling calendar, with this year’s event broadcast into more than 140 countries and attracting more than 100,000 people to the region. 

In the event’s ongoing commitment to gender equality, the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race continues to offer equal prizemoney for elite women and men. 

The announcement arrives as cycling’s elite gear up for the Tour de France beginning July 1. 

Cyclists inspired by the feats on the tour can experience their own greatness by pedalling our world-famous roads on two wheels and ride alongside Australia’s only Tour de France winner Cadel Evans with registrations already open for the 2024 TAC People’s Ride.
