After two years away from home due to the global pandemic, Cadel Evans couldn’t wait to get back to some of his favourite places in the region.

đź“Ť Point Addis


Point Addis, off the Great Ocean Road between Anglesea and Torquay, is one of Cadel’s favourite places to ride. In the years gone by, the Tour de France champion would include Point Addis to get one extra hill into his training rides. The bonus? You can enjoy one of the best views on this part of the coastline to take your mind off those burning legs!


đź“Ť Barwon Heads

Barwon Heads is home. Find out what Cadel loves most about his coastal township on the Bellarine Peninsula. He says, there’s something for everyone in the family – plus, the cycling in the region is first-class.


đź“ŤJack Rabbit Vineyard

Just off Portarlington Road, Jack Rabbit Vineyard is the perfect place to stop after riding through the hills or visiting during a day trip to the region. There aren’t many places in the world with sweeping ocean views and award-winning food and wine, says Cadel.


đź“Ť The Bellarine Rail Trail

This trail stretches 35 kilometres from South Geelong to Queenscliff. With a mostly flat and easy gradient, it’s superb for families and those new to cycling. Learn more about our favourite regional taste trails.
