Your chance to race 154km over two days! (or 104km for E, F, G, Tandem) and Lunch – all for a measly $35.

The club’s signature event, the Gunning two day race, is on over the weekend of the 14/15 October. Saturday starts at 10:00 am with a 4km uphill Prologue just to make it interesting!

For those that groaned at an uphill prologue, we’ve decided to make it interesting by throwing in bonus time on Stage 1! Again, for stage 2, time bonuses will be on offer so a good strategy will be key!

Requirements

The cost will be $35 for the race

You must be a current member of the club within the AVCC. We do not have day licences.

Riders will need to bring their helmet to the registration desk for inspection. It is an AVCC requirement that all riders wear a helmet which meets Australian Standards.

Riders must have started the previous stage to compete the next stage. If you don’t ride Saturday then you cannot start on Sunday.
