The guys at CyclingTips have just announced the inaugural 'Giro della Donna Gran Fondo'.
The route is one of our favourites and is not to be missed. You'll need to be quick to get on this one as demand is going to be huge!

We're expecting something a bit different out of this ride. We're not sure quite what it will be but there's just that feeling that there's going to be that added 'something'.
The route the guys at CyclingTips have chosen, is what we think, one of the best in Victoria, if not Australia. Starting at Warburton, the Giro della Donna will pass through 107km and push your legs up 2,700 glorious metres of climbing on their way to the the finish at the top of Mount Donna Buang.
In true Gran Fondo style, there's a 13km gravel section along Acheron Way. If you've not ridden this stretch you're missing out. Add to this the awesome Reefton Spur and traffic managed roads and you've got a ride that is going to tick all the boxes.
Registrations are not yet open, but you can pre-register your interest here.
We'll be there.
When: Sunday November 22, 2015
Where: Warburton, Victoria, Australia
