7 Peaks Ride: Mount Buller

7 Peaks Ride: Mount Buller

Victoria’s 7 Peaks Ride is an at-your-own pace cycling challenge which runs from October to April each year, taking you up winding mountain roads, around steep turns and past spectacular views right to the top of seven Victorian Alpine Resorts.

Details of the Mount Buller ride:

- Distance 15.3km

- Rise 921m

- Grade Average 6.2%

- Grade Max 13%


Mirimbah to Mount Buller is a 15.3km ride with a challenging 921 vertical metres of climb which tests you right from the start. Signposts on the roadside give you a chance to plot your progress marking altitude and distance to the Mount Buller Village. This ride is a test of strength and endurance that only gets tougher in the final few kilometres in the Village, but the scenery is spectacular, so take a moment to take in the views of neighbouring Mount Stirling and the High Country panorama.

We love those distance markers on the way up and for the most part the gradient is steady. Watch out for the final 1.5km, the toughest section of the ride, which includes the aptly named Hell Corner. The views down through the switchbacks about half way up are glorious. Diehards say you haven't really finished until you get to Arlberg - just another 1km past the official finish!

You can ride the climbs outside of the 7 Peaks Challenge, weather permitting
