Grasp life by the handlebars and grab your mates for an end-of-year holiday like no other – Bicycle Network’s Great Victorian Bike Ride. Most people have heard about it or know someone who has been on it, but what do they really know about it? Sure, it’s about 500 km in a week on a bike. But that’s barely half of it.
It’s not about the bike, but the people you meet and the towns along the way. With over 3,000 on the ride, it’s the most social week of the year. The impact on little towns is amazing. Milk bars get cleaned out, pubs run out of beer, chemists run out of sunblock and allegedly condoms!
‘It’s schoolies for adults. A chance to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and go camping with your mates whilst enjoying the party like festivities of the Great Vic Bike Ride.’
The 2023 Great Vic route will take us from the Snowy to Sea! Showcasing all the best parts of Gippsland, you can expect amazing riding, charming host towns, incredible scenery, and of course good company.
