Pedal The Peel Cycling Challenge is Returning In 2021!

Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge was set to take place on Sunday 18th April from 8:00am - however this has been POSTPONED.

The event will be held at the Tamworth Criterium Track (situated at the Tamworth Regional Sports Precinct, Jack Smyth Drive Tamworth).

This is the first major local community event to be held at the criterium track since its opening in 2019. Come along and enjoy this new cycling facility.

There will be two endurance team events that you can enter. The first event will commence at 8:00am and will run for 8 hours. 

The second event will commence at 12:00 noon and will run for four hours.

Teams of up to ten people will be permitted (minimum age of twelve years). 

Teams will be heading to the track to complete as many laps as they can to help raise money for local charities. The major charity recipient for 2021 is the Ronald McDonald House. 

The Rotary Club of Tamworth First Light would like to thank our riders and sponsors who over the past 6 years have helped us raise over $145,000 for local charities.

Help us raise money to support local charities, and make a difference to our community, by joining in the 2021 Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge.
