Where to watch: Cheer Sites

Surf Coast businesses will be race-ready all weekend. They invite you to join in the excitement and help them ring bells to CHEER the cyclists on.

Cheer Sites focused along The Esplanade and Bell Street in Torquay, and along the Great Ocean Road into the Surf Coast hinterland to Moriac, will have bells for you to ring.

What a super way to showcase our region with streets packed with enthusiastic supporters! Why not theme yourself with the race and wear Cadel Blue or your own crazy costume?

Elite riders are expected to come through Surf Coast Shire between 12pm and 2pm both days.
