Harcourt Park 25km - one way

This event is very popular, and the start will be staggered to reduce everyone’s waiting time. 

People who want to ride more quickly will start first, while those who would like to take their time, look at the scenery and may be riding with younger children start later.  You choose which start group is best for you during registration.

Make sure you arrive at least 15 minutes before your group starts for the event briefing.  There's great coffee, and plenty of activities onsite.
