2019 Highlights

A taste of the Great Vic

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.

What to expect

Ride

A fun, friendly and challenging holiday where you’ll join new and old friends riding through Victoria’s beautiful countryside.

Route options

Camp

The Great Vic is more than just a ride, it’s a rolling bike festival moving from one town to another everyday. Experience it for yourself.

Entertainment

After pedalling a few kilometres there’s heaps to enjoy at each campsite from live music, craft beer and food trucks to an outdoor cinema and local tours.

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.
