PCC is going on tour! 9 to 17 October 2021 Bright, Victoria
06 Jul 2021
Dear Parramatta Cycling Club members and friends.
To break the lockdown blues, we are hitting the road down to Bright Victoria from
9 to 17 October 2021.
Everyone is welcome and it is easy to join in, just book your accommodation in
Bright for part or all of the week and join the group for daily rides, sightseeing and
Ride options vary from 10km to 110km+, with flat rides and iconic mountain
climbs to suit all levels. The organized rides will be no drop social rides with extras
for those wanting to push themselves with longer distances and climbs.
It’s a perfect training block if you are building for one of this year’s spring Gran
Fondo’s (ie Amy’s Gran Fondo or L’Etape).
On the following page is a sample itinerary of the ride possibilities for the week,
which of course will be subject to local conditions and the needs of the group.
Bright is a picturesque town in northeast Victoria on the Ovens River, an area of
historic gold fields and famous bushrangers with towns such as Beechworth and
Yackandandah although now more well known for wineries, bakeries and other
Nestled in the valley, Bright is surrounded by well-known cycling mountains such
as Mt Buffalo, Falls Creek and Mt Hotham, and plenty of easy rides like
Wandiligong and Buckland Valley. There’s also mountain bike trails and the long-
distance rail trail along the valley.
The town has plenty of accommodation options, several restaurants and many
cafés. There are two pubs, as well as the Bright Brewery for post ride
refreshments. Also two supermarkets, two bakeries, two bike shops, and an ice
cream shop. Everything a cyclist on holiday requires.
Bright will be coming into bloom, as it’s just a week before the Spring Festival, but
there’ll be chilly mornings and snow still on the high peaks. The town averages 6-
20°C in October, with rain on 8 days.
