Join the Great Vic Bike Ride

The perfect school camp

Give your students the chance to experience a school camp like no other at the Great Vic Bike Ride. The Great Vic gets students outside and active, develops camaraderie, independence, resilience and teaches the value of achievement.

School students on the Great Vic bike ride

You’ll take away students excited for an adventure and return with a group of resilient young people united by a grand achievement.

While riding the traditional 9-day and 5-day event will sadly not be possible in 2021, we’re stoked to present a special edition four-day format— aptly named the Little Vic—that soaks up all the glory of the Grampians by bike. You can join this epic bike ride and camping adventure from 31 March – 3 April 2022.

Teacher testimonal

“There’s a really strong sense of achievement that they (the kids) get out of that challenging experience.”

“It enabled us as teachers to develop a rapport with some of the kids for whom school was a bit challenging. This was an event where they could get in there and be really physical and really active. That had a spin-off in terms of getting alongside those kids and getting engaged with them more.”

What's included

Bicycle Network takes care of everything including campsites, food, medical and mechanical assistance and full on-route support so all you need to worry about is having an amazing time with your students, parents and teachers.

Campsites also have special entertainment, sporting equipment, food trucks, retailers and an environment like no other.

Activities for students

  • Games – once students arrive back at the campsite they can continue the fun with one of the many games Bicycle Network’s Ride2School team provide, with everything from cricket to bocce.
  • Yoga – daily classes for students to relax and unwind.
  • Chill space – an undercover area where students have their own space to relax, play games or even kick back and listen to some tunes.

Training plan

We are excited to introduce our very own Great Vic schools training coach, Kate Perry, who will help prepare you and the students for the ride.

Kate’s tailored schools training plan is designed to help get you and the students get to the start line trained up, prepared and ready to roll.

The six month training plan is outlined from June – December for the traditional Great Vic dates but can also be started from October in preparation for the Little Vic in March 2022.
