Future2 Wheel Classic is a 6-day charity ride through rural Victoria.
** Moved to virtual due to COVID-19. For the ultimate challenge, more experienced riders are invited to join previous Wheel Classic riders for this year’s virtual Future2 Wheel Classic to ride over 1000km!
Future2 Wheel Classic is an annual charity ride for riders of all ability that changes location each year, with the 2019 ride touring through rural Victoria. It raises money for Future2’s Make the Difference Grant program, with each cyclist needing to raise $1500. The funds raised will bring new opportunity and hope to socially and financially disadvantaged young Australians.
Departing from Federation Square in Melbourne, you’ll head into the Daylesford Ranges and the historic town of Kilmore. Then onto the goldfields of Ballarat before heading to the rolling hills and cascading waterfalls around Apollo Bay. You’ll then ride the famous Amy Gillett Fondo route before heading along the Great Ocean Road and its panoramic views. You’ll then take a ferry ride from Sorrento and have a final ride along the Portsea beaches around Port Phillip Bay on the way back to Melbourne.
This is a fantastic way to tour Victoria, as you will see many different parts of it!
