Challenge (Social & Competitive)

Start Time: 7.30am
Distance: 108km
Elevation: 2347

Course description

In the cycling world 105km doesn’t seem that long but take a peep at the gradient and elevation gain in the event ………… OUCH. 

This ride starts off with the red section. Here riders will cover 35 km of relative flat, sealed roads through the farmlands of Berry and towards the coastline, before winding back to the town of Berry and past the start line. Here you can refuel and recover (if needed) and start the double lap of the Climb section. 

Two laps of the yellow (hills) section are where the name Challenge comes from, so pace yourself and take it easy on the descents.

Social: For those who just want to have a bit of a roll around, taking their time and taking in everything from the beautiful scenery to the wonderful atmosphere of an event ride.

Competitive: for those that have something to prove, whether it be to themselves or to fellow riders. This is for riders that want to turn in the screws a little tighter.

Feel like just a day of climbing. This will be one of the t most challenging 35 km loops you will find on the south coast. 

From the start, you head straight up, before hitting some rolling climbs and descents through some of the sweetest farmland countrysides around Berry and the Shoalhaven. 

Be careful on the descents before you start your next climb to the top of Berry Mountain with a descent back to the start/finish line.
