Conquer Mt Buffalo from Bright!  We meet at the Brewery to roll out together along the Ovens Valley to the park entry toll-booth, where the true climbing begins to Mt Buffalo chalet.   We return via the same route for a total ride distance of 72kms.

We will provide ride leaders, traffic management and safety protocols to ensure a safe, exhilarating and enjoyable experience for all riders.   We have a halfway turnaround option for those after a shorter ride.

The ambience will be social and supportive for this challenging ride - a great opportunity for those new to climbing in the mountains to give it a go amongst friends!
