Newcrest Orange Challenge 2023 – Are you up for it?
Excited to bring back the coveted Newcrest Orange Challenge on Sunday 10th September 2023.
Surrounded by breathtaking scenery and rolling hills, it’s the perfect challenge to keep you training through the cooler months.
The classic 170km route will see you take on changing terrain and seamlessly endless hills that make up the 2,200 vertical metres; the new 88km route will be a little kinder on the legs, while still encapsulating everything this breathtaking region and ride has to offer.
Like all Bicycle Network events, they’ve got your back every pedal stroke of the way with comprehensive on-route support including; rest stops, nutrition and hydration, medical and mechanical.
Your ride ticket includes:
A complimentary event jersey (early bird entries)
Road closures and route support
Post-ride barbeque lunch
Help them make bike riding easier for everyone!
As a not-for-profit organisation, taking on our events means you’re supporting our behaviour change and advocacy initiatives to make it easier for everyone to ride a bike, every day.
To celebrate the return of the Newcrest Orange Challenge, we’ll be running an optional social ride on Saturday 9th September & setting up a festival at the event village so your friends and family can enjoy it too.
