In 2020 the Alpine Classic will celebrate its 34th year and Bonjour Bright its 13th!
The Alpine Classic has been run successfully since 1986, when half a dozen keen Audax cyclists rode from Bright to Falls Creek and back. After a little refreshment they felt the need for more distance, and set off to ride the additional 70km up Mt Buffalo and back. This 200 km route became the famed Alpine Classic. As the ride became more popular routes of different distances were gradually introduced to allow more cyclists to complete their own Alpine Challenge, and share their achievement with like-minded athletes. The Alpine Classic format is now catering to around 2000 riders and provides supported routes over 8 courses providing moderate to seriously challenging courses,
Enjoy this free festival in Howitt Park, Bright with open air films, live music, entertainment, food, wine and beer as an accompaniment to the Alpine Classic. There is plenty of kids entertainment on offer throughout the weekend and a range of artists and musicians.
