7 Mar 2021 Annual Event
Peaks Challenge Falls Creek is a 235 kilometre loop ride starting at Falls Creek and riding up Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and through Omeo before heading up the back of Falls Creek.
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, and the whole ascent; The Beast. It is a steep and relentless climb with little reprieve. Do you have what it takes?
If you’re not ready for the infamous three climbs that have become synonymous with Peaks Challenge? Whet your appetite in 2021 with our new fully supported 100km loop, to see just what an alpine climb is all about.
While it’s not the full loop, this is not for the faint-hearted. Riders will descend the back of falls creek* before sweeping through Omeo Valley to Anglers Rest. The return trip will put you to the test with a brutal climb (averaging 10 per cent over the first eight kilometres) back up to Falls Creek.
Who knows, maybe this is your stepping stone to tackling all three peaks in 2022.
All events are subject to change due to government coronavirus restrictions.
