The annual 145Classic ride helps young Australians struggling with addiction, mental health issues and homelessness.
2018 will see the introduction of a '145Classic Loop Ride' through the Southern Highlands with a start and finish in Bowral, at Glebe Park on Bowral Street.
As per previous rides, there are still two ride options available for participants, making it easy for experienced and non- experienced riders to be part of the 145Classic.
Ride A: a shorter 91km loop ride through the Southern Highlands, incl 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 pit stop at Triple Care Farm.
The noticeable difference for the 2018 145Classic riders will be the lack of traffic and traffic lights, which have been replaced by deserted rural roads punctuated by "punchy" undulating hills and of course a ‘slap in the face’ climb up Jamberoo Mountain Rd for those riding the long course!
