The annual Wiggle Amy’s Gran Fondo will be held on Sunday 15 September in memory of Amy Gillett, who tragically lost her life in a training ride in Germany in 2005.
More than 5,000 bike riders and their families and friends will visit the region of the Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges as part of the ninth annual event.
The event is a major fundraiser for the Foundation, with proceeds being put towards cycling safety research, advocacy and educational campaigns and programs.
