Great Ocean Road in 4 days

In early February I went on a quick test ride for my new bike and my equipment. Since I was in Melbourne,  I chose to cycle the core part of the epic Great Ocean Road.

To get out of Melbourne I took a train to Geelong, I then cycled along the coast to Warrnambool and took a train back to Melbourne.

The bike trip was 280 km long and it took me 4 days and 3 nights to cycle it.

    Hi Peter, I have benefitted quiet a bit from your entry about riding the Great Ocean Road. You are mentioning the short cut on the Old Ocean Road. There is another piece of that that helped me tremendously cycling from Glenaire to Lavers Hill. Are you interested in including this into your description? I would get you the details.
    Thanks again for setting up this page and publishing your trips! Christiane
