The Challenge – you against the mountains
Victoria’s 7 Peaks Ride is the ultimate Australian alpine ascent challenge. It’s an at-your-own pace cycling challenge which takes you up winding mountain roads, around steep turns and past spectacular views right to the top of Victoria’s Alpine Resorts.
Your challenge for the next five months is to take on the toughest road climbs in Australia – which rival some of the famous Tour de France peaks.
The 7 Peaks passport will be the proof of your cycling toughness, stamping it along the way for every summit you successfully ride. Once you have completed your peaks and submitted your stamped passport, you will go into the draw to win some amazing prizes.
You can tackle the 7 Peaks (Mt Baw Baw, Mount Buffalo, Mt Buller, Dinner Plain, Falls Creek, Hotham, Lake Mountain) anytime from October 16 2015 to March 31 2016.
To give your training a boost, David Heatley, an Accredited Cycling Australia Cycling Coach from Cycling Inform, has put together a training program specifically for the 7 Peaks!
For a fully supported, road closed (to traffic) ride join the 7 Peaks Domestique Rides – there’s no better way to learn to climb the peaks.
So give your cycling a serious hit of altitude this summer. Throw down the challenge to yourself, your mates or your cycling club. Victoria’s 7 Peaks are there for the taking…
