Victoria’s 7 Peaks Ride is an at-your-own pace cycling challenge which run from late October to April. Taking you up winding mountain roads, around steep turns and past spectacular views right to the top of seven Victorian Alpine Resorts.

Climb out of Omeo on the Great Alpine Road, taking note to grab a breather at the Kosciuszko Lookout eight kilometres along the way. Shortly after the Lookout is something of a descent, followed by some undulating road to Cobungra Station, before you hit some serious climbing. Ride through the changing landscape of alpine ash, snowgum forest and heathland. Only 12 kilometres from Hotham, picturesque Dinner Plain village is a top spot to stay overnight.
