The Forrest Challenge – An Unparalleled Gravel Experience
Commencing in the charming township of Forrest, The Forrest Challenge offers riders an immersive experience into the wild heart of Victoria. As pedals start to turn, cyclists are enveloped by the towering embrace of the Otways’ forests, where the ancient trees stand tall, narrating tales of time. As the canopy thickens and the trail winds on, the ever-changing landscapes shift to the rhythmic dance of Heytesbury’s rolling hills, challenging every rider’s mettle.
But the journey doesn’t end amidst the green. The trail eventually breaks into vast, straight stretches that carve their way into the outskirts of Warrnambool. With every kilometre covered, the tantalising allure of the ocean grows stronger, until finally, the ride culminates on the picturesque Warrnambool foreshore. Here, amidst the gentle embrace of the waves, riders get a chance to reflect on a gravel experience that showcases parts of the Victorian countryside that remain untouched and unparalleled in any other cycling event. Truly, this is gravel riding like you’ve never known before.
