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.
