235km cycling and 4000+ metres of climbing
Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235km loop ride starting at Falls Creek and riding up Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and through Omeo before heading up the back of Falls Creek.
The back of Falls will hit you like a tonne of bricks. With 200km in your legs, you’ll quickly learn why the first pinch is called WTF Corner, and the whole ascent The Beast. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.

New look. Same feeling.
It’s more than just a jersey. We know how much it means to you. It symbolises months of training, time away from family and friends, dedication, pain and commitment.
You’ll have 13 hours to make your mark and earn one for yourself*. It’s significance is something only a fellow Peaks Challenge finisher can understand.
We chatted to some Peaks finishers and let them reflect on their preparation, the challenge and what the finishers jersey means to them.Read more
