Riding Mt Baw Baw

The ride is short, but the challenge is huge. The only Hors Catégorie climb in Australia, this access road is the steepest road cycle climb in the Southern Hemisphere and the second steepest in the world of cycling racing; second only to the Alpe d’Heuz of Le Tour de France fame. The steepest grade at Winch Corner is 20.6%. At the top the views over Gippsland and Mornington Peninsula will take your breath away – if you have any left.

Cycling Inform Ride Tips

With an average gradient of 11.4%, and sections around 13-15% with the steepest part at 20% you need to be able to climb out of the saddle. This is something to practice in your training. Plus if riding in a group be aware of the back wheel in front of you, if may roll back towards you. Give yourself a little room. Although this climb is only 6km long due to the gradients you might want to tackle this Peak with your compact chain set.
