Bicycle Network has just sold the 5,000th ticket to its 30th RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride and with three months still to go before riders set off along the Great Ocean Road, they expect a sold out event.

Rider numbers are capped at 6,000 for the 610km social supported tour, which runs from Mount Gambier to Geelong over nine days from November 23 to December 1.

“With the Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges forests as a backdrop, the route planned for the 30th year ride is a classic,” said Darren Allen, event manager at Bicycle Network.

He said the touring holiday will feature the dramatic rock formations of the Twelve Apostles, picture postcard Otway Ranges rainforest on Turtons Track, and the chance to slow down for a swim at world-famous beaches like Lorne, Torquay and Bells.

“The Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges are inspiring experiences, but it’s not until you get onto a bike that you can fully appreciate their greatness,” Mr Allen added. “It will be an unmissable week in another world.”

Bicycle Network runs the GreatVic along the Great Ocean Road roughly every four years, but this year will be the first time it starts in South Australia, with riders hitting the pedals at Mount Gambier’s Blue Lake.

Overnight stops are planned for: Nelson, Portland, Port Fairy, Port Campbell, Gellibrand, Birregurra and Torquay, finishing in Geelong.

More information is available from Bicycle Network.
