HUNDREDS of competitors turned out to take part in the annual Bass Coast Cycle Challenge on the weekend.
Bike riders, runners and those just out to enjoy the festivities, lined Inverloch’s A’Beckett Street.
More than 600 competitors signed up for the event which included four different length rides plus three fun runs.
The event saw riders hit the hills of South Gippsland, with those brave enough to tackle the 121km ride facing 14 climbs including the 250m high Mt Misery.
For those who preferred to spectate, there was plenty of action at Inverloch, with go-karts, animal petting zoo and a jumping castle to keep the kids entertained whilst waiting for the competitors to return to the finish line.
