THE 2018 145Classic was held on SUNDAY 8 APRIL

The annual 145Classic ride helps young Australians struggling with addiction, mental health issues and homelessness.

The two rides options ventured through the Southern Highlands with a start and finish in Bowral, at Glebe Park on Bowral Street. 

Ride A: a shorter 91km loop ride through the Southern Highlands, with a stop at Triple Care Farm. 

Ride B: a longer more grueling loop ride of 140kms taking in the Macquarie Pass descent, a climb up the iconic Jamberoo Mountain, and a stop at Triple Care Farm. 

The noticeable difference for the 2018 145Classic riders was the lack of traffic and traffic lights, which have been replaced by deserted rural roads punctuated by "punchy" undulating hills and of course a ‘slap in the face’ climb up Jamberoo Mountain Rd for those riding the long course!

The 145classic is an awesome ride. And most of the way it’s beautiful rolling scenery. First time I rode the Jamberoo Mountain section of the ride, the steep relentless gradient defeated me – I had to get off and push. The second time, I trained hard, steeled myself for the challenge and made it up in the saddle. It was a thrill and made the ride all the more special. Every serious rider should try this at least once – it’s a an awesome ride and a big challenge!

The 145 Classic is a fantastic ride, with front and back safety vehicles for each bunch as well as providing riders with huge stocks of food and drink. The challenge is Jamberoo Mountain, it’s the toughest hill I’ve ever had to climb up to the farm. This however needs to be put into perspective, when you consider the challenges the kids at Triple Care Farm have in getting themselves back on track. All in all a great day out, and I’m look forward to riding again in 2018.
