Cycle the High Country

Take up the 7 Peaks Challenge across the mountains of the High Country, race downhill on an alpine mountain bike trail, or slow it all down with a delightful and delicious ride between local wineries, craft breweries and farm gates.

Tour de High Country
Sign up for the annual Audax Alpine Classic or take the 7 Peaks Challenge and climb some of Victoria's classic alpine peaks. To raise the stakes a little, download the 7 Peaks iPhone App and compete against other riders.

A relaxed degree of difficulty
Take a meandering journey through the beautiful Ovens River Valley between Wangaratta and Bright on the Murray to the Mountains Rail Trail.

Arm yourself with a map, two wheels and a few mates to track down Victoria's best fresh produce. Pedal between small village producers and filling your basket with gourmet cheeses, fresh berries, wine and olives along the way. Take the Muscat Trail around Rutherglen to sample renowned fortified wines at age-old vineyards.

Mountain high
Home to the Dirty Dozen cycling trails, Victoria's High Country is a wonderland of downhill runs, cross country tracks, jumps courses, off-camber sections and much more.

Saddle up and hit the trails in Mount Buller, Falls Creek, Beechworth, Bright and Mount Beauty. Try out the Flame Trees Trail designed by the World Trail crew, follow the Klingsporn Bridle Track along an old stockmen's track, or discover the latest addition – the new 2012 Copperhead Trail.

Please ride responsibly and safely at all times. Cycling is a privilege, so treat the environment and other road and trail users with respect and courtesy.
