If your question isn’t in the list, please contact us via our website or call on 1800 639 634

What type of bike can I ride?

The Great Vic Bike Ride travels on sealed roads and is best suited to a hybrid or road bike. However, we love all bikes, and you are encouraged to use the type of bike that you are most comfortable and familiar with.

Ebikes are welcome on the Great Vic Bike Ride, subject to our policy.

What's provided at each campsite?

There’s really no campsite like a Great Vic campsite – it’s a pop-up town with everything you need, including:

  • Breakfast and dinner
  • A medical clinic
  • Daily live music and other entertainment
  • A ‘Main Street’ full of vendors, community groups and tourist information
  • Two licensed bars
  • Outdoor cinema
  • Security
  • Mobile phone and ebike charging station
  • ‘The Hub’ information centre
  • Dishwashing and clothes washing stations
  • Free water refill stations
  • Luggage trucks to move your gear each day
  • Showers and toilets
How do I move my luggage from site to site each day?

We provide a luggage transfer service, which is included in your ticket. Each day, you’ll be required to load your luggage into our luggage trucks, and unload at the next site. Make sure to take note of your luggage truck number, so you don’t have to search through thousands of bags.

Each Great Vic rider is allocated 20kg of luggage total. This must be split into:

  • 2 x 10kg bags

For the safety of our Great Vic team and other attendees, baggage weight checks will be conducted on arrival to the event, and penalties will apply for overweight bags.

Can I charge my phone at the campsite?

ChargeSpot will be on site at every stop to keep you charged up. Spots are limited so pre-book your charging now via our shop and ensure you stay connected. 

When will I receive my registration pack?

You’ll receive your registration pack when you arrive at the campsite on the first day of the ride. There will be no riding on arrival day, so arrive at any time and check in with the team at registration.
