Ride notes

Courses will be made up of loops, short loops, long loops or a combination of both. The lap configuration will depend on your category. We run a sport course catering to those who want to give the event a try or hang with their mates and be social. The age grades are for those who want to ride with or against riders of their own age. Open Men and Open women are open to anyone, but the Open Men also incorporates the seniors, so it can be highly competitive. 

Please see your age group/category below to determine your course and the number of short and/or long loops you will be doing.

NOTE: We are not racing in grades (A, B, C, D1, D2...) this year.
