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.
- Start time: 8:30am – 10:30am (rider pack collection opens from 7am)
- Location: Racecourse Reserve, Woodend
Route – Shhh it's a secret!
We’ve uncovered some pretty special gravel riding through the Macedon region that we can’t wait to share, but we’ll be keeping our lips sealed until the event 🤫. Until then, the route specs below will give you a good idea of the level of prep your legs will need to get around the course.
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.
You’ll feel supported from start to finish on your adventure, with a bunch of perks along the way.
