Cycling enthusiasts have sprinted down the finish line of the world's second oldest one-day cycling race.
The Melbourne to Warrnambool Cycling Classic created a buzz around the Warrnambool CBD on Saturday, with families and bike fans gathering at the finish line at the Liebig Street and Raglan Parade intersection.
The annual community ride kicked off at 12.30pm with about 30 people pedalling two kilometres before sprinting through the finish line.
Warrnambool's Damien Tan took part in the community race for the first time alongside his four-year-old son Josh.
"We live locally so I thought I'd take Josh for a ride as we watch the race every year," he said.
"It's a good atmosphere, you can get right up close to the action and it's great for the town."
Josh said the two-kilometre race was "very fun" and his favourite part was going "really fast down the hill".
While bike enthusiasts awaited the result of the 262 kilometre race, passersby were kept entertained with face painting, activities, coffee and food.
Warrnambool Lions Club treasure and barbecue chairman John Tankard said the community group had sold sausages at the finish line for over a decade.
"All funds raised from the sausages go back into community projects," he said.
"It's always great to see the finisher. It's a really good atmosphere."
