Tour Details
Join some of the world’s best athletes who train here at Falls Creek.

Situated high in the Australian Alps, Falls Creek has become a hot spot for athletes from around the world who seek to train and stay at altitude.

Elite athletes, cyclists, rowers, skiers, triathletes, professional sports teams and more are making Falls Creek an integral part of their training routine.  Consider this – Falls Creek is located at 1,650m above sea level. That makes it the perfect base in Australia to get some benefit from training at altitude.

If you are training for Peaks Challenge Falls Creek or another major cycling event this is perfect preparation.

Our team will develop a personalised training program to ensure you maximise your time on the mountain. Two of the team will be out on the bike with you to help you develop your climbing and descending skills.

Staying at the luxury QT Falls Creek Apartments, each with it’s own hot tub on the balcony, recovery will be just as important as the training. QT Falls Creek was voted Australia’s Best Ski Resort in 2013, 2014 and 2015 by Luxury Travel Magazine and brings boutique luxury to the slopes and rolling green hills of Falls Creek.

Join us on New Years Day and kick start the year with this fantastic training camp in style.

  • Your own room in a 2 bedroom apartment at the 5 Star QT Falls Creek (with a hot tub and a private balcony with lovely views over the ski fields and the Alpine mountains. It also features a day spa, an indoor pool, a restaurant and a bar)

Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive at Falls Creek

Tueday January 1
Today’s ride : 3 pm departure | Post New Years & travel recovery ride of 35km / 580mtrs

Check in at the QT Falls Creek Apartments is at 2pm. Once everyone has arrived, checked in and ready to roll we’ll head out for an easy spin across the top of the mountain. A nice way to recover from a big New Year’s party and drive up to the mountain.

Day 2 - Falls Creek to Tawonga Gap Return

Wednesday January 2
Today’s ride : 9am departure | 82km / 2360mtrs

We will roll down Falls Creek for the first time allowing us to practise what we’ve been discussing the night before re descending skills. After a quick stop in Mount Beauty for coffee we will head to Tawonga Gap and climb up to the lookout.

We suggest a very light lunch in Mount Beauty before we commence the 30k ride back up to Falls Creek. The hot tub on your apartment deck will be a welcome sight!

Day 3 - Falls Creek, Mount Buffalo & finish in Bright

Thursday January 3
Today’s ride : 9am departure | 129km / 2400mtrs

Today we will head down Falls Creek and once again stop for that most important coffee in Mount Beauty. From there we will ride over Tawonga Gap and stop in Bright for an early lunch before heading for Mount Buffalo.

We will re-group at the top of Mount Buffalo before descending back down to finish in Bright. We’ll stop in at the Bright Brewery for a few well earned beers before travelling back to Falls Creek in the team cars.

Day 4 - Falls Creek, Kiewa Valley & Return

Friday January 4
Today’s ride : 9am departure | 126km / 2420mtrs

By day 4 your descending skills will have improved so the ride down Falls Creek should be really enjoyable for all. Following our usual coffee stop in Mount Beauty we’ll enjoy the undulating hills along the Kiewa Valley before returning to Mount Beauty for a light lunch. We then have the final climb of the day back up Falls Creek and the awesome hot tubs on the deck back at QT Falls Creek.

Day 5 - Falls Creek, Tawonga Gap, Mt Hotham & finish in Harrietville

Saturday January 5
Today’s ride : 8am departure | 138km / 3000mtrs

Today is going to be a challenging day on the bike. We’ll descend Falls Creek, climb over Tawonga Gap and ride up the famous Mount Hotham. We will re-group at the top of Mount Hotham where we’ll enjoy a nice lunch together before our final descent of the day.
We will finish the ride in Harrietville and after a well earned beer at the local we’ll drive back to QT Falls Creek in the team cars. A solid day on the bike.

Day 6 - Falls Creek to Omeo and Return

Sunday January 6
Today’s ride : 8.30am departure | 151km / 2700mtrs

This will be our longest ride of the week and we’ve saved the best til last. We’ll head the opposite way from QT Falls Creek and ride across the top of the mountain before making the steep descent down the backside of Falls. Just remember that we have to ride back up the same way!
We’ll then enjoy the following rolling hills as we head around to Omeo where we’ll stop for lunch before tackling the ride back up Falls Creek. Once we arrive at the base of Falls Creek you will have 115k and 1,400mtrs in your legs before turning the corner and seeing just why it’s called ‘What the Fuck Corner’!
The next 9k will be tough, with sections ramping up to 20% gradient! You then have a further 13.6k to reach the top of the climb up the backside of Falls Creek. Then it’s a rolling ride back to QT Falls Creek where you can collapse into the hot tub! A huge day at the end of a big 6 days of riding.
Tonight will be our last night together so we’ll be hosting a end of training camp celebration dinner including drinks. So come and join us for a great feast, some well earned drinks and enjoy our final night together on this beautiful mountain.

Day 7 - Short ride before checkout

Monday January 7
Today’s ride : 9.00am departure | 35km / 580mtrs

Checkout is 11am so those that are keen to roll the legs over before jumping into the car for the drive home we’ll do a recovery ride across the top of the mountain. Just a light spin of the legs after a tough training week. We’ll have you back in time for a quick shower, pack your bike and checkout. What a great end to a fantastic week on the bike!
