A 105 km Road Race from Stratford on the Gippsland Plains to Dargo, gateway to Victoria’s High Country.
"Whenever I climb up my favorite Victorian berg, Mt Hotham, I pass a sign pointing to this place called "Dargo". It always makes me think about this infamous race that I’ve heard lots about but have never done - The Stratford to Dargo. From what I hear it’s tougher, longer and steeper than Mt Baw Baw and legend has it that many A-Graders with 29T cassettes end up walking the final pitch of road."

Not going? Those who went last year found the mileage a real help for the rest of summer. So consider taking The Great Vic Challenge. Match the milage day-to-day as you ride down here on the Peninsula. (Real challenge here is for Patti. Suspect less than her usual distance and there’s a rest day on day five when you have to be off your bike!).
