Spend a week in another world on the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride.
This year’s nine day bike riding holiday will take advantage of one of the most stunning routes in Gippsland.
The Grand Ridge Road which snakes through the Strzelecki Ranges is arguably Victoria’s premier bike touring route.
The 591 kilometre bike touring holiday will feature the very best of Gippsland including: two days riding the spectacular Grand Ridge Road, bike touring alongside Gippsland lakes and rivers, forests, historic towns, gourmet produce, wineries, Lakes Entrance and Phillip Island.
Gippsland has some of the best bike riding in Australia: gentle gradients, quiet country backroads and scenery to die for - making it ideal for bike riders of all levels.
The holiday starts in Lakes Entrance on 24 November with overnight stops planned for: Bruthen (24th), Briagolong (25th), Rosedale (26th), Traralgon (2 nights 27th and 28th), Yarragon (29th), Mirboo North (30th) and San Remo (1st Dec) with a finish on Phillip Island.
For those who can’t get away for the week but still want to be part of the fun can join the three day RACV Great Vic Getaway from Yarragon to Phillip Island. For those after a taste of the event then join the one day RACV Great Vic Community Ride from San Remo to Phillip Island.
Experiencing the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride is one of life’s must do’s. If you are looking for a week you will never forget, then come on the ride. It’s a week in another world.
The nine-day ride is a fully catered, camping holiday. There is extensive back up including luggage transport, a licensed cafe under canvas, full medical team, and bicycle repair facilities.
