Saturday 23 September to Monday 25 September 2017
The spirit of cycling in the Tweed is ready to get recharged at the Battle this September. Race with your mates, boost the recovering Tweed economy and challenge the Tweed Valley as four stage tour or opt in to individual races.
The purpose of the not-for-profit Battle Recharge is to bring the cycling community together for some great country laneway racing and to support the return of sports tourism in the region.
A weekend all about the bike, featuring some of the most challenging riding in Australia set amongst an idyllic mountain backdrop.
Battle Recharge is Australia's most sought after weekend of cycling; bringing together racing, riding, dining, and glamping in a remarkable location.
For 2017 they are excited to be welcoming the National Road Series for both men and women, the classic Battle graded tour, and a new Challenge on the Border age group program. New for September is the option to opt-in to individual races within the full tour.
The Murwillumbah Showgrounds provide a central base to integrate travel, accommodation, and dining in the Valley. Races passing through communities such as Tyalgum and Stokers Siding provide pathways to explore the Tweed's wonderful food, drink and culture.
