Great Vic Bike Ride

Tips and training

Our rider promise

We understand in today's climate there is some uncertainty about committing to events early, and with that in mind 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.

Training program

Our friends at Karmea have helped tailor an 18 week training guide that provides a foundation for anyone looking to prepare for a multi-day bike riding event. The sessions are designed to build weekly kms in the legs, while increasing your strength and endurance. Your body will need to get used to backing up rides on consecutive days. Don’t forget, recovery is everything!

Week one of the training guide can be started on Monday 29 November 2021 for the perfect lead in to Little Vic 2022 😊. Happy riding!
