About the listing
Deakin University Elite Women’s Race UCI 1.1 - Saturday 27th January
UCI WorldTour Elite Men’s Race - Sunday 28th January
Be there with bells on! Torquay and Surf Coast businesses will be race-ready. The atmosphere will be buzzing all weekend and you’re invited to join the excitement and help them to ring bells to CHEER the cyclists on.
The elite riders are expected to come through Torquay between 12 and 1.30pm.
The event also features the Swiss People’s Ride on 27 January, with 3,500 cyclists riding through Torquay from 8am onwards. These recreational cyclists will be easily spotted in the official 2018 jersey which has been designed to reflect the natural beauty of the world-famous coastline – the Great Ocean Road. Business will be ready to 'fuel them up' with the perfect cup of coffee or tasty bite to eat, to help fire them along on the remainder of the course.
There will be plenty of bells available at Cheer Sites on the Esplanade and Bell Street in Torquay, and along the Great Ocean Road into the Surf Coast hinterland to Moriac.
The Cheer Sites offer an ideal spot for spectators to ‘ring in’ the cyclists and watch the race up-close.
