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The noticeable difference for the 2018 145Classic riders was the lack of traffic and traffic lights, which have been replaced by deserted rural roads punctuated by "punchy" undulating hills and of course a ‘slap in the face’ climb up Jamberoo Mountain Rd for those riding the long course!
