Ride Party Camp Repeat
How does a challenging, rolling, camping holiday sound? If it sounds like your kind of thing, this year's RACV Great Victorian Bike Ride 2017 is for you. The race kicks off for the first time from Tidal River, within the stunning Wilsons Promontory National Park on Saturday 25 November and runs to Sunday 4 December 2017. Music from local bands and the on-site Spokes Bar will get the fun underway with an afternoon of live acoustic sets.

From there, you will pedal your way through the natural and unspoiled beauty of Ninety Mile Beach as you ride through South Gippsland to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range.

The RACV Great Vic is much more than just a bike ride. After each day exploring the beautiful Victorian countryside on two wheels, you'll be able to relax and enjoy some live music, craft beer, food trucks, an outdoor cinema and local tours at each of the stops.

The RACV Great Vic rolling bike festival moves from one town to another, staying in a new location each night. With a heap of camping options available, there is something for every type of camper.
