Great Vic Bike Ride

Tips and training

Our rider promise

We can't wait to have you join our next GREAT adventure! We are preparing for the event with the health and safety of our riders, volunteers and spectators at the forefront and we've made a few changes to our event operations to ensure COVID-safety guidelines are met.

Along with these changes we have created a COVID-19 refund policy so you can sign up with confidence.

From the first pedal stroke of your training to crossing the finish line on the final day, our tips and training guide has everything you need to prepare for the Great Vic Bike Ride.
