Our rider promise

We can't wait to have you join our next GREAT adventure! We are preparing for the event with the health and safety of our riders, volunteers and spectators at the forefront and we've made a few changes to our event operations to ensure COVID-safety guidelines are met.

Along with these changes 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 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.

Featuring crowd favourites and hidden gems, the 2022 route takes you to the best of the Great Ocean Road region including Volcanic craters, Otway rainforests, rugged coastlines and Golden Plains. Gather your riding buddies, dust off your tent and get your bike ready…

The Great Vic is back!

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 nine 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.
