What does it take to be a Peaks finisher?

235km cycling and 4000+ metres of climbing

The route

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 climb is notorious amongst Peaks riders. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.

Bont Cycling King and Queen of Peaks Challenge 

We’re putting up $500 cash per climb for the KOM and QOM challenge. The fastest individual climb time (female and male) up Tawonga Gap, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek will be crowned the King and Queen of the respective peaks.

That’s a total of $1,500 each up for grabs!
