Great vic bike ride
Included – with general entry
General camping is part of your ticket, and includes a camping spot for you, your tent and your bike. Lights out in general camping is 10:00pm.
Perfect for those seeking a little tranquility with their camping experience. With an early curfew of 9:30pm, we ask quiet campers to keep noise levels to a minimum and respect the serenity of the quiet camping area.
Upgrades – purchased separately
Don’t have a tent, or not keen to put up your own each day? Our brilliant team will pick out a prime spot at the campsite and set up a dome tent for you each night so you can kick back at the end of a day’s riding.
A dome tent must be purchased in addition to your Great Vic entry and sleeps two people.
Stand up tent
After a little extra luxury for your Great Vic adventure? Our stand-up upgrades include a premium tent which will be pitched and waiting for you when you arrive. These tents include extra headroom so you can easily change standing up, plus two bedrolls to ensure you’re comfy at night.

Handy hint – Campsite tips
The best bit about the Great Vic is that we ride to a new campsite each day.
In the morning, pack your luggage and gear into one of our nearby luggage trucks and we’ll move it to the next campsite for you. Make sure you take note of the truck number so you know where to find your bags at the next campsite.Learn more
