The Great Victorian Bike Ride is coming to Tallangatta!

27 November 2018

On Tuesday 27th November this year, between 3000 and 4000 riders and support staff will stay overnight at the Tallangatta Showgrounds.

The GVBR is a non-competitive, fully supported annual bicycle touring event organised by Bicycle Network Victoria.

The first ride was held in 1984, attracting 2100 riders in what was initially supposed to be a one-off event. Due to its unexpected popularity and success, it subsequently became an annual event.

The 2018 GVBR is being held across North East Victoria, commencing in Bright on Sunday 25th November and concluding in Benalla on Sunday 2nd December.
