Great Vic Bike Ride
What to expect
The Great Vic is so much more than a bike ride. With two bars, food and coffee trucks, local artists, live music, yoga, games and all the necessary camp amenities, you’ll never be short of something to do around camp.
In the morning, pack your belongings into one of our luggage trucks and we’ll move it to the next campsite while you ride.
On route support
The Great Vic Bike Ride is a fully supported ride to make getting from A to B as easy and enjoyable as possible. Here’s a glimpse of what you can expect to see out on the route throughout the ride.
Sick, injured or can’t continue riding? SAG (support and gear) wagons will ensure you get to the next campsite.
Rest and lunch areas
Stops along the way to have a breather, go to the toilet, top your drink bottle up and have lunch and snacks before carrying on.
We have first aid at rest areas, campsites and out on the road to help you get from A to B.
Keep an eye open for our marshals on the road – they are there to point you in the right direction and love a wave or ring of your bell.
WARBYs (we are right behind you)
WARBYs will help you out on the road with mechanical issues or when you need motivational support.
Road closures and traffic management
We work with state police and roads authorities to manage traffic conditions while the ride is on. This includes closing roads to other traffic and changing speed limits where appropriate.
We don’t want you getting lost, so we have signage to point you in the right direction.
Bike mechanics will be available in case you have an unfortunate mechanical breakdown.
The Great Vic has long led the charge in sustainable event experience, and we’ve always been proud of the efforts of the event community in reducing our environmental footprint.
From our requirement for reusable plates, cutlery and cups on site, to the removal of 20,000 single-use plastic pieces from our dessert packaging in 2018, each year we review our operations to make sure we’re playing our part in the war on waste.
What we’re doing in 2020
In 2020 we’ll be increasing our recycling efforts with the introduction of cans only at bars while also continuing to improve the new food waste system that was recently introduced.
How you can help
- Use reusable plates, cutlery, keep cups and straws for your meals or when purchasing from food vendors (and using our wash stations to keep them clean)
- Bring a small container to carry your morning snack (muffins, etc.)
- Reduce food waste by taking only what you need
- Separate your food waste from your general waste
- Using correct bins to avoid contamination of food waste and recycling
