Explore Bright and the High Country on the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride
Spend a week in another world
Spectacular scenery, camping out, making new friends and the perfect conditions for bike riders experience it all when you spend 'a week in another world' on the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride.
The ride this year is expected to attract more than 4,000 people keen to take on the challenge 520 kilometres between Albury and Lilydale through Victoria's High Country from November 29-December 7.
The 31st RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride will be a fun, friendly and challenging holiday.
2014 will be a touring cyclist's delight, winding its way through the hills and valleys of the spectacular North East of Victoria.
The ride will also be recreating a little bit of history as the first Great Vic in 1984 took some of the same route (it went from Wodonga to Melbourne).
Organised by Bicycle Network, the 520 kilometre biking holiday includes overnight stops in Yackandandah, Bright, Moyhu, Mansfield (2 nights), Alexandra and Healesville with a finish through the Black Spur to Lilydale.
It's a tremendous opportunity to take time out, get physically active and have a lot of fun. It really is a week in another world.
