The count down is on, with only four months to go, before the 3,500 riders of the Great Victorian Bike Ride come to Foster for the first night of their 517km adventure, which begins at Tidal River on November 25.

Offer an Event
It could be an event e.g. street party, a service e.g. hair washing, massage, a product e.g. BBQ or food stall . It doesn’t have to be big – it is all about welcoming the riders to Foster
Past experience tells us that many of the riders return to the towns they enjoyed, in the months following the ride, as tourists bringing their friends and families.
Join the Prom Country GVBR Committee and help make it happen!
