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