What type of bike should I ride at the Great Vic Bike Ride?

The Great Victorian Bike Ride is completed on sealed roads and is better 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.

E-bikes are welcome on the Great Victorian 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. This can be either:

  • 1 x 20kg bag or,
  • 2 x 10kg bagg

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. There is limited spots so pre-book your unlimited charging now via our shop and ensure you stay connected. 

When will I receive my registration kit?

You’ll receive your registration kit 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.
