Our rider promise

We understand in today's climate there is some uncertainty about committing to events early, and with that in mind we have created a COVID-19 refund policy so you can sign up with confidence.

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 riders soak up an afternoon and evening of entertainment and activities.

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

While running the traditional 9-day event will sadly not be possible in 2021, we’ve adapted our plans and are stoked to present a special edition four-day format—the Little Vic—that delivers all the best parts of the ride and is just as great!

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

In 2019 more than 3,000 people joined us in 2019 to ride from Robe to Torquay along the iconic Great Ocean Road. Here’s how it all went down.
