Road Series


This is the second and final round in our gravel series, and Vikings and Canberra Cycling Clubs will award a Canberra 'gravel champ' at the end of the event. Winners will receive virtual medals ;)

The formula is the same...different lengths to cater for different abilities. As usual, the event will be catered reflecting the relaxed nature of Gravel Cycling.

  • Champs Event: 2 hours Full Gas - as many laps as you can complete. After 2 hours you won't be able to start a new lap. Winners will be determined by the greatest number of laps in the shortest amount of time.
  • Timed Participation Event: as many laps as you feel like doing within the 2-hour window (no medal options).

To be eligible for Champs category, you must enter with an AusCycling 'Race Off-Road' or 'Race All Discipline' licence. Lifestyle, 1 day, 7 day, and 4 week trials will not be eligible for our champs medal categories.

The Champs Age Categories to be contested include:

  • Men and Women, U17, U19, U23, Elite, Masters 1 - 9

It is a race, a timed participation event, and it’s fully catered. Prizes, refreshments, and merch will be provided by BentSpoke Brewing.

Safety

Other riders and park users will be on the trails at SFP. Be courteous and respectful as you cross MTB trails and overtake/are overtaken by other riders. Remember that this is a relaxed gravel event: we're all here to have fun.


Bikes

The course is suitable for Cyclocross, Gravel and Mountain Bikes, although if you're feeling particularly adventurous you can bring your Road Bike too.

Everyone's welcome!

In short, ride whatever you want, but gearing will help with some of the hills. And while the roads are in great condition, a road bike would be hard work.
