A loop ride starting and finishing at Glebe Park, Bowral
133km Ride,86km Ride
$150 non-refundable registration fee per person
$500 fundraising minimum per rider
The 2019 ride will be a loop course starting and finishing in Bowral, and navigating the beautiful and rural roads of the Southern Highlands. The event helps Sir David Martin Foundation raise much needed funds for Triple Care Farm - an award winning rehab program for young Australians.
The 145Classic remains a fully supported ride. This means that the ride will be completed in groups of 12-20 riders. Each group will be pre-determined and graded according to ability. Each group will be supported by a SAG (Spares and Gear) vehicle.
Fully supported is a nice way to ride. You don’t have to load your pockets up with food and spares. If you get hot or cold, you can shed or collect clothing from the SAG. It’s like riding with your very own butler!!
133km Ride will start at 7:30am from Glebe Park, Bowral. Riders will need to be at Glebe Park by 7:00am for final registration, briefing and meeting your SAG driver, and a quick coffee and breakfast.
86km Ride will start at 8:00am from Glebe Park, Bowral. Riders will need to be at Glebe Park by 7:30am for final registration, briefing, meet your SAG driver and breakfast.
It is expected both rides will take approximately 4-6 hours to complete, dependent on individual ride ability, group pace and number of stops/ rests.
We would expect that all riders would finish back at Glebe Park, Bowral, no later than 3pm.
