Welcome to first-time contributor, Byron Davy!
This week, we take a trip to one of the most picturesque regions of Australia, the stunning Surf Coast town of Lorne.
Lorne plays host to some of Australia’s best Gran Fondos including the seminal Amy’s Gran Fondo, a weekend of racing that unites over 5,000 riders from around the world.
This collection has some of the best climbs in the region, plus a few hidden gems that we’ll be sure to visit time we’re down the coast.
You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.

A popular climb out straight out the coastal town of Lorne this is a steady climb up through the Otway Forest Park. As the first climb for the annual Amy's Classic the pace up here can be frenetic on ride day though this time it's a quiet early summer morning enjoying the bush and birds.More Info
Not as well known as the Benwerrin climb out of Lorne, Erskine Falls is a steady climb with pinches in the early sections. This road leads to the site of the world famous Falls Festival and during festival season this road is full of partygoers. For the rest of the year though it's a quiet tourist road with almost no traffic.More Info
