Communities are an integral part of the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride and we encourage all communities along the route to become involved in the ride.

Every year, RACV Great Vic Riders vote 'community spirit' as the one thing that most shaped their experience on the event - they love the warm welcomes, local hospitality and the opportunity to really discover the best that Victoria has to offer!

So to help you get involved, and maximise the opportunity for everyone along the route, we'll work closely with you to ensure you enjoy your experience with the RACV Great Vic as much as our riders do!

As a way of giving back to the generous communities that offer their towns to support the ride, the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride provides the opportunity for community groups to fundraise. Fundraising opportunities are available at nominated rest and lunch stops or at the campsites along the route.

Inside the documents are tips for community groups regarding fundraising and some great ideas for local businesses to implement when the riders are in town.

Community meetings

Community meetings are a fantastic way for members of the public to learn more about the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride. Each meeting is presented by a member of the RACV Great Vic Event Team and includes an overview on the event, what you can expect when the Ride comes to your town and also how you can get involved.
