To fuel our bodies, we stuck to the WOR model with a foodie-focus: high quality local produce inspired afternoon-teas, a gourmet picnic lunch & wine degustation dinner at Feathertop Winery to make sure our riding was rewarded with all of the wonderful food and wine of North East Victoria.

Check out some of Beardy and Bob’s beautiful photos below and if you’re interested in joining us in 2019 on our Vic Alps Tour - register online!

We’ve just come back from an awesome 4 days cycling in Victoria’s High Country as part of our Vic Alps Cycle Tour!

The weather was perfect, cycling sublime, beers cold and to top it all off we had Beardy McBeardy and Bob Barrett Photography along for the ride to capture the whole thing for Cyclist Magazine Aus.

A group of 17 in total - we conquered 4 of the 7 Peaks Ride Climbs over 4 days: Falls Creek, Dinner Plain, Mt Hotham and Mt Buffalo - as well as Tawonga Gap for good measure!

Photos on this page all thanks to Beardy and Bob!

Thanks to those who joined us - it was great to have along WOR regulars (Rocket and the “Jerilderee Gang”!) as well as meeting some great new people from around Vic and NSW. A big shout-out to Zoe who conquered her first ever true mountain climb (and managed to tick off all 4 over the weekend and made it looks easy!) and Ryan who came without any training in the hills and rode (most of the way) with a huge smile on his face!
