Welcome to the Great Otway Gravel Grind

Sunday 23 February 2025

Escape the asphalt and enjoy KM after KM of traffic-free dirt roads through the Great Otway National Park.

Follow a magical line through tall timber forests, past massive tree ferns, lookouts, lakes and beaches – you’ll ride (or race) great gravel roads with 600+ other riders! Conducted in a unique format with timeout zones, The GOGG allows for easy social riding or fast paced gravel racing that anyone can be part of.

First held in 2017, The GOGG is fast gaining recognition as one of Australia’s best gravel events! Join us in 2025!

  > Spectacular dirt roads with no traffic
  >> Time-out Zones and coffee stops (untimed)
  >>> Suitable for all types of bikes – gravel, MTB, CX or road. 

The GOGG is held in conjunction with the Otway Odyssey MTB Marathons (on Saturday) making an incredible double header weekend for any rider.

Entries to open in September!
