13 hours to prove yourself

Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is one of the greatest riding experiences of your life.

You’ll tackle the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, the beast that is the back of Falls Creek. It will hit you like a tonne of bricks.

In 2018, 1,500 riders faced the peaks but only those who crossed the finish line within the 13-hour deadline earn the right to proudly call themselves Peaks Challenge finishers.

One of the greatest riding experiences of your life is within reach – you ride, we’ll do the rest.

“You cannot define this iconic undertaking by one moment. The entire event including all the training, camaraderie and preparation was one magnificent journey” – 2017 Peaks Finisher

The route

A steep and relentless climb

Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235km loop ride from Falls Creek, via Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and Omeo to the Back of Falls.

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. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.

You’ll have 13 hours to make your mark and earn a jersey for yourself. It’s significance is something only a fellow Peaks Challenge Finisher can understand.

Peaks Challenge

The legacy

Most riders can take on a challenge, but few take on the epic ones.

The beginning

In 2010, our first riders took on the peaks in Victoria’s rugged High Country. Riders were pushed to their limits and beyond, but still rose to the challenge. The legend of the series was born.

In 2018, 1,500 riders tackled one of Australia’s toughest bike rides, Peaks Challenge Falls Creek. 

The final Cradle Mountain

2017 also saw 300 riders tackle the rugged but spectacular landscape of Tassie’s North West at the final Peaks Challenge Cradle Mountain.

Your domestiques

Team Bicycle Network

At a Peaks Challenge event, we don’t just provide you food and water. We have a team dedicated to setting the pace, rhythm and the attitude that’s required for a good day in the saddle. You can expect lots of encouragement, support and help with pace setting from Team Bicycle Network.
