“The was my first mountain bike event at age 51. I had the best time. The course was brutal but so rewarding to hit the finish line. I’m still on a high 4 days later and I can’t stop talking about the race. The whole thing really blew me away!” – Mark Williams, 2021 100km Odyssey rider

“Incredible single track, stunning scenery, excellent support and sensational race and event village vibe … there’s so much to love about the Otway Odyssey!” Shane Hughes, 2020 100km Odyssey rider

“30 seconds into the race I had a face full of dust and I knew it was going to be a good ride! The sweet single track and [email protected] climbing didn’t disappoint…” Kathryn Visser, 2019 50km 2nd-place Female.

“It’s still my favourite course, in my favourite setting, at the best time of year and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who loves adventure and awesome trails, and the shorter varieties to anybody staring out.”
Peta Mullens, 5-time Otway Odyssey female Champion
