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
  • ‘Main Street’, a strip full of shops, food and coffee trucks, 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 take your luggage to our luggage trucks, so it can be transported to the next site. Take note of your luggage truck number so you can find your luggage at the next site.

Each Great Vic rider is allocated 20kg of luggage. This must be spread across 2 bags of approximately 10kg each. For the safety of all Great Vic team and 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?

Yes, phone and device charging will be available at each campsite. We ask that you pre-book your unlimited charging now and ensure you stay connected. Learn more about Phone charging on event.

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.
