Bicycle Network: The event (4764)
You have 13 hours to defy your limits and prove yourself. Are you up for it in 2018?
One of the greatest riding experiences of your life
In 2010, Peaks Challenge Falls Creek was founded on adversity, with the first edition a fierce, cold and brutal ride through Victoria’s High Country. And from that event, grew a mystique that spawned a series.
Since then, thousands of brave cyclists have returned, pushing themselves beyond the edge of their abilities in one of the world’s toughest rides.
You’ll tackle the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, the beast that is the Back of Falls. The Back of Falls will hit you like a tonne of bricks. With 200km in your legs, you’ll quickly learn why the first pinch is called WTF corner. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.
Last year, 2,000 riders faced the peaks but only those who crossed the finish line within the 13-hour deadline, earn the right to proudly call themselves Peaks Challenge finishers.
The mountains of Victoria’s Alpine area are beckoning. One of the greatest riding experiences of your life is within reach.
This year, 88% of riders finished. Have you got what it takes?
