This is Peaks Challenge

What does it take to be a Peaks finisher?

Peaks Challenge is the ultimate personal challenge and begins a never-ending journey in the pursuit of up. Do you have what it takes?

235km | 4000m+ Climbing | 13 hours

The route

Equivalent to a mountain stage of the Tour de France, Peaks Challenge is a 235km ride with 4000+ metres of climbing and a 13-hour deadline.

Set across three of the Victorian high country’s most famous climbs, you’ll tackle the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, ‘The Beast’ that is the back of Falls Creek.

Mindset is key to conquering Peaks, while Tawonga Gap will have you saying “Allez, Allez” and Hotham will change your mantra to “Shut up legs”, the back of Falls will hit you like a tonne of bricks. With 200km in your legs, you’ll quickly learn why the first pinch is notorious among past Peaks riders. It’s a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve and is synonymous with the coaching words ‘Bang, bang, bang’ from Team Bicycle Network co-captain, Lee Turner.
