Proudly Hosted by the South Perth Rouleurs
THE WATER TOWER CHALLENGE
Date – Sunday 11th October 2020
We are back for the SPR WaterTower Challenge after a couple of years hiatus. Ride against the clock in groups of 3 through the Perth suburbs in search of water towers. You will likely find water towers that you never knew existed and visit suburbs you do not usually ride through.
The SPR water tower challenge is a participation event designed to challenge riders of any ability. Whether it is to traverse the course in the fastest time or just record a century, this event is for you. There are two routes to choose from: the imperial century (170kms) and the metric century (103kms).
Both courses travel around the suburbs of Perth to visit a number of water towers. There is a set course and riders must follow it precisely in order to record an official time. The challenge is open to teams of 3 riders and the team must stay together for the entire event. Teams will be dispatched at intervals to try to minimise the impact that this event will have on the road. It is in your best interest not to work with other teams as this is a timed event.
The route is complicated and will not be marked on the day. it is recommended that at least one person has a map ready GPS device to ensure you are heading in the right direction. Turn by turn directions will also be available.
If you are not a member of Cycling Australia a day licence ($15) is available to cover your insurance during the event. The price of this will be added to your registration fee.
Ride safe, be courteous, obey road rules and SPR hopes you enjoy the day
