Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic 2017 Date & Cycling Route

Just as the name suggests, the race starts in Melbourne and ends at Warrnambool, approximately 278kms away. The route used for the cycling race has been consistent over the years, but amendments to be made on an annual basis will require participants to familiarize themselves with the terrain as well as for spectators to know the best viewing points.

Usually, the race kicks off with a mass start before cyclists are separated into their respective categories, namely: NRS Riders, Grace B, Grade C and Grade D riders. Note too, that the NRS riders constitute Grade A category.

Those interested in participating in the classic are required to register well in advance. Team registration requires a minimum of three members and a maximum of eight for each team.

Overall, the Melbourne to Warrnambool Classic is an exciting event to experience the outdoors and enjoy the beauty of the course across different natural landscapes.
