Get ready for ….

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

If you haven’t started already, this ride will help you kick off your 2021 cycling season with the perfect early season test – just make sure to bring your A Game as this will 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 will provide you with the proper hydration and goodies to keep spirits high as you chip away at the kilometre count.

The Epic Route itself begins 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.  This is your opportunity to test your climb fitness. We hope you have 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 begin the undulating loops that form the heart of our ride. Peats Ridge Road is a safe and wide road that rolls and undulates up towards Central Mangrove. You can ride in groups or by yourself, but get ready to rumble. There are no significant climbs to note, just rolling stunning country side to enjoy as you clock up those early morning  kilometres.

But keep something in the tank, as these flowing roads will begin to add up and as you complete your first lap – you will realise this is no walk in the park.
