Cyclists cross the finish line
The Great Victorian Bike Ride 2018 concluded in Benalla with cyclist from across the state crossing the finish line on Sunday.
Riders either competed in the nineday ride, travelling well over 500 km from Bright, or the three-day ride covering more than 200 km from Rutherglen.
One thing they all had in common were the smiles on their faces that signified completing the event.
The Great Victorian Bike Ride is a non-competitive event, which has been an annual fixture on the calendar since 1984.
After crossing the finish line many stayed to enjoy a coffee or some lunch in one of the cafes on Bridge St.
