The third event featured in the 2014 Challenge Series is the Whittlesea Challenge. The Whittlesea region provides the rare opportunity to escape the traffic and enjoy quiet roads, picturesque scenery and country charm only 35 minutes from central Melbourne. The 110km and 68km courses include undulating terrain and breathtaking views across the Kinglake National Park; this ride is available for cyclists of all fitness levels and will push cyclists to their limits. The roads surrounding Whittlesea have long been popular with cyclists of all levels. Australian star Cadel Evans grew up in Arthur's Creek just down the road from Whittlesea, and still rates this as one of his favourite training regions anywhere in the world. European based cyclists regularly use in these parts when back in Australia.
