Amy’s Gran Fondo 2013

On 15th September 2013, around 4000 cyclists made what has become an annual pilgrimage to Lorne on Australia’s world renowned Great Ocean Road to partake in Amy’ Gran Fondo. A semi competitive 120km organised ride over a stunningly beautiful and challenging course.

In 2005, Amy Gillett, a passionate and talented athlete was tragically killed whilst out on regular training ride in Germany. A foundation was formed in memoriam, with the sole purpose of reducing death and Injury of cyclists.

‘Amy’s Gran Fondo’ has become the flagship event for the Amy Gillett Foundation, helping to spread the message for improved safety through campaigns such as ‘A meter matters’.

This video was taken on board with Manning Thomson, a good friend who rode to a personal best time. You can spot me at the start of the video, before Manning blew me away up the big mountain climb up Skenes Creek Road.
