The majestic Grampians and the award-wining Art Silos in Western Victoria will take pride of place at this year’s Great Vic Bike Ride.

The 537-kilometre route is arguably the world’s greatest cycling holiday and bike riding adventure. 

 The 2021 Great Vic Bike Ride will show people a different side to the Grampians, with both the riding and off-the-bike experiences showcasing something new.


The Grampians and Art Silos route was planned for 2020 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Highlights of the 5-day ride include:

>> The grain lands of Rainbow 

>> Grampians National Park

>> Art Silos, part of Australia’s largest outdoor gallery

>> A loop ride out of Horsham to arts hub Natimuk

>> A Halls Gap rest day 

>> A first-time visit to Pomonal, famous for its spring-time wildflowers

>> Finish line at Seppelt Winery

>> A chance to slow down and see Victoria from the seat of a bicycle

>> Being part of the most social week of the year. 

>> The grain lands of Rainbow
