Date TBC to coincide with the opening weekend of 7 Peaks season; also 27 Dec 2018 and 7 Jan 2019
Are you looking for that next challenge? This is it - 11 Peaks / 7 days cycle tour in Victoria’s High Country
What are the 11 peaks I hear you say? There are of course the ‘official’ 7 Peaks, but we have added to this tour Mt Wills from Mitta, Falls Creek from WTF Corner Omeo Highway, Whitfield Pub from Mansfield, and Tawonga Gap from Tawonga. 11 climbs totalling 15,716m in elevation and 623km distance.
Let’s break that down… firstly, you don’t need to be a mountain goat, and you don’t need to climb fast, but you will need to be fit and strong enough to repeat on average 89km and 2,245m elevation per day for 7 days. Secondly, it’s a fully supported tour, so you can ride as much or as little as you like.
If you want that next cycle challenge or you may even be a little crazy - this tour is just right for you. Start and finish in Wodonga with easy access by freeway, rail and Albury airport. We can organise pick-ups, help set your bike up or bike hire if required. Places limited – min 4, max 15 cyclists.
