SPORT (Melb) – DP Festival of Cycling

March 6, 2010toMarch 8, 2010


  • 6 – 8 March 2010
The DP Festival of Cycling is a 3 day cycling event based in the picturesque village of Dinner Plain in North East Victoria. The event offers a unique opportunity for road cyclists to challenge themselves to descend and climb the Great Alpine Road, including the renowned Mt Hotham Summit, in a fully supported environment. With a maximum of 120 riders participating, all aspects of the weekend are personalised to ensure you can achieve your personal best on your bike.
The team from Ridewiser (located in Melbourne) will provide expertise throughout the weekend including the Ridewiser coaching and skills sessions, mechanical workshop and rider support during the Hotham Challenge Ride and Blue Duck Inn Ride. In addition there are post ride BBQs, an official event dinner and social drinks.
The altitude of the mountains offers the perfect cool location to escape the March heat and with loads of extra activities on offer including guided hiking and cross country mountain biking tours, horseriding, spa and beauty therapies and the Japanese inspired Onsen, it’s a great place to bring family and friends for a long weekend.
