The Century Challenge Cycle Rides

Head off the beaten track 21st May 2023

Head off the beaten track and let loose on this gravel adventure. For weekend riders looking to test their mettle it may be time to try out the Ourimbah Gravel Challenge Route. You can take a step outside of your comfort zone and ride off the beaten track and deep into the beautiful Ourimbah State Forest – NSW Central Coast’s gravel riding mecca. This ride is perfect for those dipping their toes in gravel riding.

The Ourimbah Gravel Challenge has something for everybody so feel free to bring along your trusty mountain bike or your latest gravel grinder. You can even ride on an old road bike but we would advise you to tackle the ride with at least 28mm tyres on your bike for the most comfort and to avoid punctures.

Come and see what the quiet gravel roads and tree-lined paradise of Ourimbah State Forest has to offer. Be prepared for some great vistas, 38kms of gravel and tarmac and possibly a friendly hill or two.
