Charity cycle ride to cater for all levels

Last year's Century Challenge Cycle Ride raises money for Coast Shelter

The Rotary Club of Erina will present the 16th Century Challenge Cycle Ride on May 15.

The ride caters for all levels of cycling. For elite riders, aged 16 years and over, there is the 100km ride. This ride is a challenge with hills, along with scenic stretches through the Central Coast hinterland. The 50km ride, for those aged 16 years and over, also involves a couple of challenging sections, and is great for those cyclists who want to test themselves on a longer ride.

The 20km Family and Community ride is on quieter roads and is ideal for cyclists wanting to venture a little further than the bike track, and is great for a family group. There is also a Kids Challenge in the grounds of Mt Penang Parklands. Along the route of the rides there are drink and food stops.

All rides start and finish at Mt Penang, where there is plenty of parking and easy access to the start of the rides. A free BBQ is provided to all participants, and there will be help on hand for your bicycle from local cycle retailers.

The Century Challenge Cycle Ride is the only charity cycle ride on the Coast.The major beneficiary of the ride is Coast Shelter.
