Outback Century Cycle

Do you have what it takes? You only get one chance every two years. 100 miles (160km) or 100 km – your choice of century!

Saturday 23 September 2017 – 6.30am at Elderslie Street (starting point)

It’s billed as the toughest, flattest cycling event in the Outback. On Saturday 23 September, the Brodie Agencies/Ergon Energy Outback Festival Century Challenge takes participants on a metric (100km) or imperial century (160km) ride on a fully sealed road, starting and finishing in Winton. It may not be overly hilly, but what the ride lacks in physical tests, it more than makes up for in mental challenge.

Ride organiser, Chris Carson said the absence of geographic features and scenery which many riders are accustomed to, makes the Outback Century Cycle Challenge a really tough course to complete.

So what’s the challenge you may ask? Out here there are no big climbs, there are miles of wide-open spaces and there are more emus than cars. The challenge is not just physical – it’s also mental! But once you get your head around the sheer vastness of this great Outback land of ours, it will be an adventure you will cherish for life!

This event is proudly sponsored by Brodie Agencies & Ergon Energy.
