The Century Challenge Rides

Challenge yourself and have fun …

Are you ready to take the challenge?

The 2021 Century Challenge started from the well-equipped Start and Finish at Mt Penang Parklands – Kariong, on the edge of the stunning Brisbane Water National Park.

This was the 21st Anniversary of the Central Coast’s premier charity cycling ride and with such a history was a must do for cyclists of all ages.

If you hadn’t started already, this ride helped you kick off your 2020 cycling season with the perfect early season test – just make sure to brought your A Game as this was likely be an epic ride. Yet this event is designed to be an ideal all-rounder ride with undulating roads and well-equipped feed stations throughout that provided you with the proper hydration and goodies to keep spirits high as you chipped away at the kilometre count.

The Epic Route itself began with a terrific descent into the beautiful Brisbane Water National Park and then across Mooney Mooney Creek, to the beginning of a stunning early morning climb through an iconic bush area.  We hoped you had your climbing shoes on, it’s over 4km of twists and turns until you arrive at the beginning of Peats Ridge Road and some relatively flat terrain. So catch your breath. Because now you began the undulating loops that form the heart of our 21st anniversary ride. Peats Ridge Road is a safe and wide road that rolls and undulates up towards Central Mangrove. You could ride in groups or by yourself, but had to be ready to rumble. There were no significant climbs to note, just rolling stunning country side to enjoy as you clocked up those early morning  kilometres.

But keep something in the tank, as these flowing roads  began to add up and as you completed your first lap – you realised this is no walk in the park.

Let the fun begin
