ROAD CYCLING

With epic climbs, spectacular views and a year-round cycle-friendly village at 1650m+, Falls Creek is Australia's number one destination for road cycling.

ROAD CYCLING

For the avid cyclist Falls Creek is simply the perfect destination.

Consider this - Falls Creek has a dedicated all-season village, complete with accredited cycle-friendly businesses, all located at least 1650m above sea level. That makes it the perfect base to get the benefits of altitude training.

It is also the pinnacle of one of North East Victoria's elite 7 Peaks Ride climbs. Head off from Mt Beauty for the 30km ascent with an average 4% grade (max 10%) through spectacular alpine wilderness.

Out of Falls Creek nearby destinations of Omeo, Anglers Rest, Bright and Mt Hotham are all within reach.
