Great Vic Bike Ride 2020

Our next Great Vic adventure!

The Great Vic Bike Ride 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.
