Traditionally anyone building strength to move up the racing grades, ride in the Tour of Bright or hit high form for the summer racing season uses the Alpine Assault training camp as an annual trip to the mountains – not to be missed. Over the three days, SKCC club riders climb some of the major peaks in the Victorian alpine region, as well as having the opportunity to participate in a climbing/descending skill refresher with a champion > Mt Hotham & Mt Buffalo.

These rides are all ‘out-and-back’ routes from the Bright central departure point with a daily pre-ride format, tips, regroup points and danger points to watch for, all spelled out by SKCC Olympian and ClubPRO advisor Rob Crowe at 3 Ridewiser Ride Briefings.
