Bicycle Network Victoria has unveiled a classic route along the Great Ocean Road and through the Otways to celebrate the 30th RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride.
With only 6,000 tickets (limited to 5000 nine day, 800 three day and 200 one day tickets) available, the ride looks set to sell out quickly with those interested being urged to book early when tickets go on sale in May 2013
The 610 kilometre bike 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.
For the first time ever the ride will start in South Australia at Mount Gambier's Blue Lake. Overnight stops are planned for: Nelson (23rd), Portland (24th), Port Fairy (25th), Port Campbell (2 nights 26th and 27th), Gellibrand (28th), Birregurra (29th) and Torquay (30th) and with a finish in Geelong.
It's an amazing event, ask someone who has taken part. It's an unforgettable holiday, suitable for all ages. It's social, inspiring, and a challenge.
Those who can't get away for the week but still want to be part of the fun can join the 3 Day RACV Great Vic Getaway from Gellibrand to Geelong.
There is no better way to see Australia and meet Australians than on the RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride. It is a week in another world. 2013 will be unmissable!Visit Website
