About the listing

Australia’s most respected mountain bike marathon, the Otway Odyssey presented by Focus will see hundreds of riders race through the spectacular Otway Ranges near Forrest in south-western Victoria from 24 to 25 February, 2018.

The 12th edition of the event features the popular 100 kilometre Odyssey, 50 kilometre Shorty and 30 kilometre Rookie mountain bike races, as well as the kids’ 10 kilometre Pioneer event, all starting and finishing amongst a huge bike expo and food festival at the Forrest Football Ground.

After its hugely successful inception in 2017, The Great Otway Gravel Grind (The GOGG) will also return so road riders, gravel enthusiasts and recreational riders of all styles can enjoy a scenic but challenging 49 kilometre or 97 kilometre ride on the Range’s smooth rolling dirt roads as part of this popular new riding format. The GOGG was an instant hit last year as it requires no specific skills, bikes or knowledge to enjoy a traffic-free ride through the area's magnificent tall timber forests.

Female riders taking the first step into racing can enjoy a range of new 'Otway Angels' skills programs, partnerships, networking opportunities, course recces and special events that aim to improve accessibility to the sport.
