Cyclists of all types are invited to Ben Lomond to challenge themselves with a 17.7km uphill gravel road race. The race will see you climb 1050m through eucalypt bushland, past boulderfields, up the infamous Jacobs Ladder, and across an alpine plateau to the finish line!
Prepare for a unique opportunity to experience this incredible route, while competing for the chance of winning $500 (donated by Howell Property Group)!
There’re more prizes too! Teens as young as 13 are invited to join the junior race where the winner will receive $300! Sponsors Ben Lomond Alpine Resort are donating all-inclusive ski lift and rental gear tickets for skiing this winter, as well as snowplay hire packages and some fantastic merchandise as spot prizes. The Albert Brewery are donating a celebratory premium lager to every senior entrant as well.
If you love climbing big hills or just setting yourself a challenge then this event is for you!
