Things to check off before you set off
Always check the weather forecast before you set off on your ride:
Alpine weather changes very quickly, even in summer.
Always tell someone where you are going and when you expect to return.
Always carry adequate clothing for changing weather conditions.
Always carry adequate water and food as you might not be able to access either at the top of the climb.
Carry a mobile phone, but be aware that mobile coverage is not guaranteed.
Be fire ready and stay safe. Be aware of the Fire Danger Rating for the day you are cycling, especially in high fire-risk areas. If the day is declared a day of Code Red fire danger follow the advice from emergency services. For up-to-date information on fire danger ratings in Victoria or general safety advice contact 1800 240 667 and check out the CFA website.
Official emergency warnings are broadcast on ABC Local Radio and commercial radio stations cross Victoria and SkyNews television. Make sure you are aware of the conditions and listen to warnings by tuning into one of the local radio station, SkyNews or visiting the Emergency Services website.
It’s a good idea to check that roads are open before you go. For Victorian road closures check out the VicRoads website.
For peak events and activities that may have an impact on traffic and road conditions check each peaks’ website.
