The ChallengeEast Arnhem Land has awesome mountain biking with sandy tracks, creek crossings, rocky terrain and well-worn tracks that wind through uninterrupted beaches, Savannah woodland and Jurassic cycad forests. The inaugural 3-day challenge kicks off on Friday 27 August at Nhulunbuy. Courses start daily from the small town centre and venture into the surrounding lush bushland and beaches. Course distances vary each day, with shorter options for inexperienced and non-endurance riders.
The Challenge is suitable for beginners and intermediate riders and is open to team entries.
Race against yourself or race to win, it’s up to you. Most of all, the challenge is about riding in a truly spectacular and visually stunning location and experiencing and interacting with a culture more than 40,000 years old. Each day there will be post-race barbeques and the opportunity to relax with new and old friends.
The event culminates at Yirrkala, an aboriginal community located 13km west of Nhulunbuy, with traditional dance, song and a barbeque of freshly-caught seafood. Lots of prizes and giveaways will be up for grabs during the 3-day event.
