Century Challenge ~ The Short

The 2021 Century Challenge starts from the well-equipped Start and Finish at Mt Penang Parklands – Kariong, nestled in the heart of the stunning Brisbane Waters National Park.

Cycling is a fantastic fun activity

Get ready for ….

The day begins when you unpack your cycling gear and head from the huge parking area to the Challenge Village. A kaleidoscope of colour surrounds you as you make your way through the hundreds of bikes, team colours and feel the excitement of participating in the Central Coast’s very own charity bike ride.

After you’ve racked the bike, take some time to explore the exhibitor’s and sponsor’s stalls and food outlets before taking your place in the starting pack. Our Century Challenge mascot will keep you entertained and give you a great big send-off as you pass over the start line and you’re on your way for an 18 km cycle taking in the rolling hills and hinterland around Somersby.

It is safety all the way as we have plenty of marshal’s on the course and signs directing you to your first stop and the hydration station for a banana and a drink- then its back on the bike to return to the festivities at the village.
