Welcome to the 2017 Pedal The Peel - Cycle Challenge

Hi Riders,


We have decided to move the date for our annual Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge from October this year to 2 April 2017.

 

Please make a note in your diary. That should give you the opportunity to get fit over the warmer months before tackling the Challenge. There are 4 courses ranging from 16 km up to 115 km.

 

The event will be bigger, better and loads of fun. We look forward to welcoming you back to the event.

Help raise over $20,000 to support local charities, and make a difference to our community, by joining over 300 cyclists in the 2017 Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge riding through some of the most picturesque countryside of Tamworth and the Peel Valley.

This fun cycling challenge will start and finish at Moore Creek Tennis Club on Moore Creek Road, Tamworth.  You can choose from 4 courses;

  • 15km Escorted Course
  • 25km Short Course
  • 55km Medium Course
  • 115km Long Course

Our target is to raise over $20,000 from the Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge and to distribute the proceeds to Tamworth local charities, and to have fun doing this! So, how can you get involved?

  • Get your friends, family or work mates together and register.

  • Select which course you would like to ride – choose from;

    • 15km Escorted Course
    • 25km Short Course
    • 55km Medium Course
    • 115km Long Course

    • The Escorted Course is aimed at riders hitting the road for the first time or riders who do frequent the road and wish to participate in this exciting challenge. It will be led by a safety vehicle and have experienced cyclists assisting riders along the course.
  • Start training!  It is a fun cycling challenge, but it is important to practice beforehand.
  • Become a Volunteer! – If you wish to participate in this challenge but are unable to ride a bike then consider becoming a volunteer, we have exciting roles for everyone who would like to participate such as;

    • Road Marshals
    • Rest Stop Attendants
    • And Many More

Don't forget, even if you don't take the challenge, you can still show your support by joining us at Moore Creek Tennis Club on Moore Creek Road to support the riders.  There will be delicious food and refreshments, including steak and sausage sandwiches at the Rotary BBQ, as well as live entertainment and Cake Stall.
