Getting there – Transport and parking

Long term car park (LTCP) – pre-book from Monday 13 May 2024

Prefer to drive? Our long-term car parks (LTCP) are conveniently located at the finish line so you can access your car as soon as you’ve finished the ride. Parking passes (per vehicle) can be booked with your ride ticket. Coach transport (booked as above) is available to transfer you, your bike and your luggage from the LTCP to the start line and needs to be booked separately.

You can organise your own transport to/from the event using our designated drop-off and pick-up points at the start/finish lines.

The Great Vic Bike Ride is completed on sealed roads and is best suited to a hybrid or road bike. However, we love all bikes, and you are encouraged to use the type of bike that you are most comfortable and familiar with.

Ebikes are welcome on the Great Vic Bike Ride, subject to our policy.

There’s really no campsite like a Great Vic campsite – it’s a pop-up town with everything you need, including:

  • Breakfast and dinner
  • A medical clinic
  • Daily live entertainment
  • ‘Main Street’ full of vendors, community groups and tourist information
  • Two licensed bars
  • Security
  • Mobile phone charging (recommended to pre-book)
  • Ebike secure charging station (must pre-book)
  • The Hub (Information Centre)
  • Dishwashing station
  • Clothes washing station (rest day)
  • Free water refill stations
  • Luggage trucks to move your gear each day

We provide a luggage transfer service, which is included in your ticket. Each day, you’ll be required to take your luggage to our luggage trucks so it can be transported to the next site. Take note of your luggage truck number, so you can find your luggage at the next site.

Each Great Vic rider is allocated 20kg of luggage. We prefer if you can bring 2 x 10kg max bags. For the safety of all Great Vic team and attendees, baggage weight checks will be conducted on arrival to the event and penalties will apply for overweight bags.

Yes, ChargeSpot will be available at each campsite. We ask that you pre-book your unlimited charging to ensure you stay connected.

You’ll receive your registration kit when you arrive at the campsite on the first day of the ride. There will be no riding on arrival day, so arrive at any time.
