Stage 2 Port Campbell to Lorne 149km

 

 
   
     
 
Today we start our journey back towards Melbourne via Great Ocean Road and incorporating famed segments of the “Hell of the South classic”.  Beginning with a ride past the Twelve Apostles the rigours of the Hell of the South will have started to take their toll by the time they reach Ferguson and the demand for coffee will be high.  
 
As the group presses on toward Turtons Track the expected fragmentation of the peloton will occur with the classic strongmen looking to be first onto this most technical sweep of road.  Heading into Lorne by rejoining the Great Ocean Road, the ascent of Cape Paton or Mount Defiance, is the last bastion of hard terrain before we overnight in Lorne.
