Test your strength and endurance by cycling up to the Resort on the Mt Buller Tourist Road - a 16km uphill grind that stretches from the base of the mountain to the top. This climb rises 921 vertical metres in height, with an average grade of 6% and section that even reaches 13%.
This popular cycling challenge allows you to take in some spectacular High Country scenery while pushing your body to the limit. Regular signposts on the roadside allow you to chart your progress up the mountain, advising you of the altitude you have reached and the number of kilometres to go until you get the Mt Buller Village.
The official road cycling season for Mt Buller opens after the snow season has ended in September / October, and closes prior to the opening of the snow season (Queen's Birthday weekend), in June. Road cyclists are not permitted to ride up or down the Mt Buller Road in the snow season. The road is a declared hazard to cyclists due to heavy traffic and the changed road conditions due to snowfall and cold temperatures.
No photos or it didn’t happen some say! Dial up your ride time, grab a selfie and shout to the world “I Peaked Mt Buller”. Opposite the Mt Buller Clock Tower you will find our interactive sign, made special for the roadies, where those who’ve completed the 15.3km hill climb can pose for that all important Instagram photo, and dial in their ride time into the sign itself. Don’t forget to tag #ipeakedmtbuller and #mt_buller
Elite athletes train on the Mt Buller Road, including champion cyclist Simon Gerrans, who completed the climb in an impressive 39 minutes and 50 seconds - a personal best time. See how you compare to Simon's time! Start the ride at Mirimbah at the base of the mountain or stretch it out even further and leave from Mansfield, the closest major town to Buller. The 48km run from Mansfield to Mt Buller features relatively easy rolling hills and offers some great views on the approach to Buller.
While the uphill ride to the Mt Buller Village is best suited to experienced road cyclists, people of any level can undertake the exhilarating journey back down the mountain. Don't be surprised to be passed by cyclists squealing for joy as they round corners at high speeds, navigating their way through Buller's winding turns!
There are mixed emotions as we reach the end of this incredible green season on the bike trails; feeling sad but high stoke for the season that was all at the same time.
A massive thanks go out to all those who have been a part of the works across Mt Buller and Mt Stirling in transforming out mountain bike trails including a big thank you to the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund - Stimulus Round for the funding that made reinvigorating the trails possible.
If you didn't make it up here this summer, make a plan to get on your bike in November 2022 and see what all the fuss is about. The bike trails are now closed as winter preparation kicks into gear across the resorts, but we'll keep you posted when our trails roll out for next summer.
Our entire MTB trail network will be fully refurbished through the 2021/22 Summer season, thanks to a $1.25m grant funding from the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund. Taking place over the next several months, the MTB trail network is getting groomed, developed, and manicured to perfection, but until they're ready, there will be the occasional trail closure across the MTB trail network. We encourage all riders to inspect the new trails before committing to an extreme run of the trail.
