The 105 km Tharwa Challenge is perfect for those who’ve previously completed the 50, or first-timers who’ve put in the training and want to test their limits.
The ‘undulating’ course takes you from Stromlo to Tharwa and back, with a number of climbs, but nothing too serious.
You’ll enjoy the Mt McDonald descent into the Cotter, followed by the picturesque weave through Pierces Creek Forest. There’s plenty of tranquility as you make your way through the open farmland of the Murrumbidgee Valley.
You will soon reach your turnaround point at the beautiful Tharwa village. Here you can have a well-earned rest; buy a coffee or just enjoy the friendly hospitality of the Pedal Power volunteers providing snacks and drinks.
