An Odyssey sent from the Gods… A heroic mountain bike marathon that journey’s through a range of wild landscapes and cranking single track… complete it, and you will have joined the mountain bike mythology!After signing up for the Otway Odyssey 2014, you will be able to claim your stance atop the Otway Ranges as a warrior… a TWO wheeled warrior and conqueror of 100 kilometres of vertiginous climbs, thick swathes of forest and the odd mud monster clawing out from the ferns.A sense of triumph will encapsulate you as you take in the event festival post ride, and share your courageous stories with warriors alike.The biking battlefield shape-shifted in 2013 with a NEW MARATHON COURSE looping Forrest to Forrest. The same course will be retained for 2014, squeezing the most from this mountain biking Mecca’s sweet and savoury single track.

Total elevation gain / loss: 1077m
Start / finish: Forrest Football Ground
Leg 1 (Start to Forrest Football Ground): 25km, 617m elevation gain / loss
Leg 2 (Football Ground through Yaugher and back): 25km, 460 elevation gain / loss
Track Composition for 50k Kona Shorty (approximate)
15% Unsealed Road
29% Fire road & double track
54% Single track
Note – the 100km and 50km courses have been designed to be quite separate so that faster 100km riders are not held up by slower 50km riders and visa versa. The two courses will share very little over lapping trails and should allow both riders to have their own space on the trails so neither need not worry about hold ups.
