Gravel Macedon – new in 2024

Support us to support local communities. Gravel Macedon kicks off on Saturday 23 March 2024.

Our three secret circuits will cater for everyone from new gravel riders to masters of grit.

We’ll take you off the grid to discover hidden roads, majestic views and moments of exhilaration. Expect feed stations, entertainment and comprehensive on-route support along the way.

You’ll roll along roads less travelled and soak up magnificent views of Hanging Rock and the southern tip of the Great Dividing Range. 

And the best parts? Car-free roads, untapped trails and pure gravel-riding heaven. You won’t believe it’s all only an hour from Melbourne.

Plus, join us to celebrate with the community after you cross the finish line in the heart of Woodend.

Don’t be afraid to go long! We’ve included a few short-cuts throughout the day, so if you’re not feeling it you can always opt for a shorter loop.
