Centenary Trail Blaze – entries open

Events, News 2 238

A joint venture of CORC and Pedal Power ACT, the 2013 Centenary Trail Blaze is a 130k off-road cycle event staged over 2 days, Saturday 30 November and Sunday 1 December. A mass participation event rather than a competition, it will showcase the newly commissioned Canberra Centenary Trail and its environs.  The 2 stages will be on good quality fire roads and shared paths with gentle grades, suitable for cyclists with basic off-road riding skills. Approximately 75% of the road surfaces are unpaved, but are suitable for any mountain bike and most other bicycles with the right tyres. Interaction with motor traffic is minimal, confined to a few road crossings. Each stage of the event is a loop of approximately 65k:

  • Stage 1: Southern Loop, Sat 30 Nov – Blundells Cottage to Tuggeranong & return;
  • Stage 2: Northern Loop, Sun 01 Dec – Blundells Cottage to Hall & return.

A printed guidebook will be provided to paid participants, containing maps and highlighting points of cultural and historical significance along the route.  The website will provide a number of downloadable GPS trace files which riders with a compatible device can use for navigation.

      They should be opening early in July – keep an eye on the website. We’ll put something up on the front page as soon as they are open
