We’re pleased to be returning to Victoria’s High Country for a new and very unique trip taking in the farthest, finest and least ridden roads of the majestic Alpine region and High Country.

This all-new fully supported three-night, four-day trip begins and ends in beautiful Bright but explores seldom visited parts of the region. You’ll spend two rides completing a near 300km super-loop circumnavigating Mt Bogong (Victoria’s highest peak) before enjoying another two separate rides starting and finishing from a private retreat near Bright. This unique trip structure with an overnight stay at a remote retreat buried deep in the Mitta Mitta Valley allows us to enjoy places usually not reachable in a day’s riding.

The adventure begins mid-morning on Thursday in Bright. You’ll have brunch whilst your bikes are being prepared by our mechanic. We’ll kit up and ride 120km into the wilderness to our first night’s accommodation in the remote Mitta Mitta Valley.

On Friday morning we’ll venture north through the Alpine National Park, making our way back to Bright in a different direction over 180km of some of the region’s least ridden roads. We’ll check in to our private estate in Bright where we’ll spend the next two days and nights.

On Saturday’s 100km ride we’ll challenge ourselves on the Hors Catégorie rated Mt Buffalo including the spectacular upper section to The Horn, which finishes with a gravel road and the best views in the region. We’ll return to our retreat for a dip in the pool, massage and a celebratory Saturday night feast with all the trimmings.

On Sunday morning we’ll go for an easy ride exploring some of the local area’s secret spots before brunch at a local cafe. We’ll service and pack your bike before you depart at around midday. If you wish, we can arrange an airport transfer.
