Get on your bike to make a difference to young Australians in need
2019 wheel classic
Get on your bike to make a difference to young Australians in need. In 2019, the Future2 Wheel Classic will set off from Melbourne.
Departing from Federation Square, the Wheel Classic will head into the Daylesford Ranges and the historic town of Broadford.
We’ll cycle to the goldfields of Ballarat and then head to the rolling hills and cascading waterfalls around Apollo Bay. We will ride the famous Amy Gillett Fondo route before heading along the Great Ocean Road and its panoramic views.
An overnight stay in Queenscliff before a ferry ride and final ride along the Portsea beaches around Port Phillip Bay back to Melbourne.
The 6-day ride covers a course of 819kms and you can also opt for a shorter 3 or 4-day ride. Take a sneak peek at the course route, check out the aerial video of the course.
The Wheel Classic caters for all cycling abilities. Yes, you will need to train but at an average distance of 100km on the shorter route and 20km/h average is very doable and achievable.
Riders taking on the Future2 Wheel Classic will take on the challenge of raising $1,500 to directly support Future2’s Make the Difference Grant program.
