About the Event

DATE: 11 March 2018 

We are a team of cycling fanatics taking on The Peaks Challenge, one of the top 10 toughest one-day cycling events in the world. We will be tackling the ascents of Tawonga Gap, Mount Hotham and finally, the beast that is the back of Falls Creek. 

Last year, 2,000 riders faced the peaks but only those who crossed the finish line within the 13-hour deadline earn the right to proudly call themselves Peaks Challenge finishers.

We are setting ourselves the challenge of joining the coveted under 10-hour club!

You can support us in our journey by making a donation via our fundraising pages below.
