You ride, we'll do the rest
We’ve got your back at Peaks Challenge Falls Creek and this includes on-route mechanical assistance.
Pedal Power Garage are on board to support you at the village before the ride and will be out on the road to help you get through with minimal fuss.
Pedal Power Garage will be set up at the village on the Saturday for all of your last minute servicing, repairs and sales of products to help get through.
Plenty of tyres, tubes, tyre levers, and Co2 canisters will be available to minimise puncture issues.
There will be a range of clothing including helmets, gloves, jackets and vests to make the day more comfortable if the weather is not what is expected.
A fully equipped workshop will be able to make last minute repairs, servicing and adjustments. Everything from cables to cassettes will be available.
The team will also be set up bright and early on the Sunday morning before the ride begins.
Two vehicles will be on the road and a set up at the Dinner Plain lunch stop.
It’s all about doing everything possible to get riders to the finish line.

Cut off times
It’s not just the climbs and kilometres themselves that make Peaks Challenge Falls Creek so tough, it’s also the 13-hour time limit.
To keep on track and stay under this limit you will need to reach the below checkpoints by the set cut-off times. If you arrive at one of these points after the cut-off time you will be asked to retire gracefully.
A good way to know if you are on track is to keep an eye out for the lanterne rouge riders. If they ever get in front of you, you’ll need to pick up the pace.

- Harrietville rest area: 10:45am
