Ride Start Date: 2020-11-08
The Great Southern Randonnée (GSR) is a premier 1200 km randonnee with a tradition of fabulous support provided by enthusiastic volunteers. It is Audax Australia’s equivalent of the iconic Paris-Brest-Paris 1200km randonnee, similarly being run every four years.
Riders can elect to start in the evening, on an overnight loop of the Bellarine Peninsula first, or could elect to start in the morning and head along the grandeur of the Great Ocean Road first, leaving the Bellarine Peninsula loop until the end .
The seventh edition of the GSR will be held on Sunday 8th November 2020.
The format will be similar to the 2016 GSR, with the course and list of controls to be finalised by the end of March.
Website details for 2020 will be updated as planning proceeds.
It is expected that registrations will open around April 2020.
