The ‘Classic 80’
Begin your adventure in the quaint town of Timboon, where the ‘Classic 80’ sets the stage for a ride that encapsulates both beauty and challenge. The initial 30km loop heading north out of town invites riders to experience the undulating landscapes of the Heytesbury region. With every pedal stroke, you’ll face rolling hills dotted with sharp, pinching climbs that test both your legs and determination. However, as challenging as this little route may be, the beauty of the region offers a soothing counterpoint, making every exertion worthwhile.
Once you’ve navigated this scenic maze, the course loops back through Timboon, signaling the commencement of a different kind of challenge. Here, riders are introduced to the expansive, cannonball run straight roads that reach out towards the outskirts of Warrnambool. This stretch, with its long, straight horizons, tests not just physical endurance but mental fortitude as well.
The culmination of the ‘Classic 80’ is nothing short of rewarding. Riders will find themselves finishing their journey on the picturesque Warrnambool foreshore, basking in the coastal beauty while getting a glimpse of what the legendary Dirty Warrny holds.
A Taste of the Monumental Journey
From the moment the start flag waves, the clock starts ticking, making every second on the ‘Classic 80’ count. Whether you’re riding to be the first to cross the finish line or striving to complete the challenge within an allocated time, the course promises a sense of accomplishment. So, gear up, set your pace, and embark on a ride that offers more than just a route – it’s a journey into the heart of the Dirty Warrny experience.
