Road cycling

Your trusty old bike is all you need for access to some of the most spectacular parts of Victoria, from the iconic Great Ocean Road to the High Country's awesome peaks.

Be part of the riding community
You'll encounter a growing community of recreational cyclists on weekends and holidays on roads around Victoria.

This community atmosphere reaches its crescendo at major cycling events like Around the Bay in A Day, which takes cyclists on a 250-kilometre round trip from Melbourne via Queenscliff and Sorrento.

Other events give you the opportunity to see some of the world's best road racers compete against up-and-coming Australian cyclists.

Seriously challenging rides as well
Complete the High Country's Queen Victoria Ride and climb to Mount Hotham, Falls Creek and the Bogong Alpine Way. Have your Alpine Ascent Challenge Boarding Pass stamped at the major ski resorts for the chance of a Tour de France prize.

Collect the kudos from cycling the famous Great Ocean Road. Avoid weekends for an uninterrupted ride on a smooth, relatively empty road with unforgettable ocean views.
