Challenge yourself and discover the best of the Bush Capital on 14 September 2014.
Canberra Off-Road Cyclists (CORC) and Pedal Power are teaming up once again to present the Centenary Trail Blaze for the second year.
This unique event promises something for everyone – from the most seasoned rider through to those just starting out and keen to check out the wonderful Centenary Trail.
For 2014 we have changed to a one day format with the option to take on the entire 145km trail – the perfect chance to bring out your “gravel grinder” for a challenging and scenic adventure that will take riders through Red Hill, Isaacs Ridge, the Murrumbidgee corridor and Kambah Pool!
We are also offering shorter distances which will focus on the full 65 km southern section of the trail and, for those looking for a slightly shorter but no less rewarding ride, there will be the option of riding approximately 35 km before taking a shuttle bus back to the Event Hub at Stromlo Forest Park.
The Centenary Trail Blaze is the perfect event to explore the trail for the first time or ride new sections that you haven’t experienced before. All rides are on good quality fire roads and shared paths with gentle grades, suitable for cyclists with basic off-road riding skills. Approximately 70% 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. The Event will be fully supported with food stations placed throughout the courses, which will also be fully signposted with volunteers placed at key locations along the way.
We are excited to welcome the Heart Foundation on board as the official Charity Partner of the 2014 Event.
The Heart Foundation relies on donations and gifts to continue its lifesaving research and health education work. A portion of all entries will be donated to this amazing charity, so you can make a difference just by taking part – and riders also have the option to make a donation during the registration process, or raise funds directly through the Heart Foundations (see the ‘Fundraising’ section of the website below).
