2020 event update

While we’ve had to adjust to a new way of living over the past couple of months, our planning for this year’s Great Vic has stayed on track as we get ready to explore the Art Silos and Grampians. However, with current restrictions in place, the timing is not quite right to open entries as we normally would in May. 

We want to be respectful of the work that our government and health care workers are doing to keep us safe and we want to make sure that when you purchase a ticket, you can be confident that you’ll be riding with us in November 2020. The latest we’ll go on sale this year is mid-August. Of course, if we get the all-clear to open registrations before then, we will.

Hold tight and register your interest for the Great Vic now. It won’t be long until we’re all back together for a ride in the great outdoors with great mates on the Great Vic.

Our next great adventure!

The Great Vic is Australia’s biggest and most iconic riding holiday.

The rolling bike festival pedals to a new town each day, setting up camp where we can soak up an afternoon and evening of entertainment and activities including live music, comedy, yoga, an outdoor cinema and much more! 

Each year, seasoned campaigners and new riders come together to share three, five or nine days of camaraderie, camping and cycling through some of the most picturesque pockets of the country.

In 2020 you can choose from three ride options as we explore the Art Silos and the Grampians in Western Victoria.

Whats on

“It’s like going on holiday with a big group of your best mates.”

Beginning in 1984, Victoria’s favourite annual regional ride is now 36 years young. It is a rite of passage for people who ride bikes and has established a proud reputation for being much more than a cycling event. The Great Vic is a rolling bike festival that pedals to a new town each day, setting up camp where riders can soak up an evening of entertainment. 

For seasoned campaigners, it’s an annual catch up with 3,000 friends. For others, it’s the first time they’ve ridden more than a few kilometres at once – let alone ten days in a row. But for everyone, it’s a great escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life in and around tranquil and inviting regional towns, and this year promises to be no different.

2019 Highlights

A taste of the Great Vic
