Bicycle Network: Great Escapade
Great Escapade: a History
For years, Bicycle Network Victoria has been taking bike riders on adventures all over! From Tasmania to New Zealand, Australia's South and West - we've been everywhere. Find out more...
Since 1984, each November, the Great Victorian Bike Ride is held in a different part of Victoria. In the same way, Bicycle Network Victoria organises an annual Ride in late Summer to Autumn, outside of Victoria. We've explored Tasmania coast to coast, ridden past glaciers in New Zealand, breathed in the karri forests of Western Australia and tasted our way through the wine regions of South Australia to name a few. We've come up with a new way to explain all of these exciting bike riding adventures - the Great Escapade. We hope you like it!
