A non-competitive cyclo-sportive event that provides a great challenge to ride the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie, Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum). It is historically named ‘Five Peaks Challenge’ but since 2015, when Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum) was added, it has six peaks for you.

There are two ride lengths (118 km or 83 km) within which you have the option to choose which peaks you climb and which ones you by-pass. Take on all six peaks for a total elevation gains of about 2,000 m on the longer ride and 1,500 m on the shorter ride – but you can bypass the peaks if necessary for less climbing. And there are food stations and support available available on course.

The event is a major fund-raising opportunity for Woden Rotary and their supported charities – Cycling Without Age and ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children).

This year the Challenge will take place on Sunday 14 May.
