ROAD RIDING HIGHLIGHTS
ALPINE VALLEYS & COUNTRY ROADS
The Kiewa, Ovens, Mitta and King valleys offer the tarmac enthusiast a myriad of excellent riding opportunities, from long fast loops best suited to group rides to quiet backroads ideal for a solo escape. Away from the valleys, the options around Mansfield, the Upper Murray and Marysville are just as spectacular and rewarding.
CLIMB A MOUNTAIN
Home to six of Australia's best mountain ascents, Victoria's High Country throws down a serious climbing challenge to any road rider. Base yourself in one of the valley towns or villages and tackle one or more of Mt Hotham, Falls Creek, Dinner Plain, Mt Buffalo, Mt Buller or Lake Mountain. Or do them all and conquer the 7 Peaks Ride. The best bit? You get to ride back down.
RIDE AN EVENT
With such spectacular scenery and challenging tarmac riding it's no wonder that the High Country is home to a variety of road events. There's something for everyone, from local club rides to long-running classics such as Peaks Challenge and the Alpine Classic.
