Victoria’s 7 Peaks Alpine Ascent Challenge is an at-your-own pace cycling challenge which takes you up winding mountain roads, around steep turns and past spectacular views right to the top of Victoria’s Alpine Resorts. Your challenge for six months over summer is to take on the toughest road climbs in Australia – which rival some of the famous Tour de France peaks. Climbs to conquer:
The 7 Peaks Digital Passport will be the proof of your cycling toughness. Once you have completed your peaks and logged them with the 7 Peaks App, or submitted your stamped paper passport you will go into the draw to win some amazing prizes - including a special major prize to the Tour de France! But how you enter this season will be slightly different. You will be awarded one entry for every 7 Peaks climb completed (including multiples of the same climb - sweet!) up to a maximum of 7 entries. If then you complete all 7 Peaks climbs, you'll receive a bonus 10 entries in the prize draw - a nice a bit of incentive!
For all those more 'traditional' folks out there, you can still download a paper version of the 7 Peaks Passport here, and get that tactile satisfaction of stamping your passport at the finish. Register here
You can tackle the 7 Peaks (Mt Baw Baw, Mt Buffalo, Mt Buller, Dinner Plain, Falls Creek, Hotham, Lake Mountain) anytime from 27 October 2017 to 29 April 2018.
So give your cycling a serious hit of altitude this summer. Throw down the challenge to yourself, your mates or your cycling club. Victoria’s 7 Peaks are there for the taking. Visit the 7 Peaks website for further information and to register for your passport: www.7peaks.com.au.
