Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235 kilometre ride with over 4,000 metres of climbing, set among the backdrop of the beautiful Victorian Alps.
You will tackle the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, ‘The Beast’ that is the back of Falls. The back of Falls will hit you like a tonne of bricks. With 200 kilometres in your legs, you will quickly learn why the first pinch is called WTF Corner. It is a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve.
Climb One: Tawonga Gap – 7.5 kilometres, 476 metre elevation, 6 per cent average gradient.
Climb Two: Mt Hotham – 29.9 kilometres, 1,303 metre elevation, 4 per cent average gradient
Climb Three: Falls Creek – 22.6 kilometres, 980 metre elevation, 4 per cent average gradient
