Festival

The perfect setting to raise a glass and celebrate a weekend of cycling

There's plenty to keep you, your family and support crew entertained across the entire Newcrest Orange Challenge weekend.

We've lined up the region's renowned local restaurants, breweries and wineries to be part of our free Food and Wine Festival.

After indulging in the region's best produce, you can relax and unwind with a post-ride massage or sit back and enjoy some live music.

There will be plenty of entertainment for the kids too, including a new, 4km kids-only ride where funds raised will go towards charity Give Me 5 for Kids.    

Locals, riders, friends and family are all welcome!

Food and Wine Festival – Sunday 5 March 

Location: Moulder Park Velodrome

The Finish Line Festival will complement the Newcrest Orange Challenge with a selection of boutique wines, craft beers and outstanding local food sourced from the Orange region.

Entry is completely free and open to the public. Riders participating in the Newcrest Orange Challenge are scheduled to arrive at the Velodrome just as the festival kicks off – be part of the atmosphere as riders join the festival at the finish line.

Kit Collection

All riders who signed up during the early bird period, before Friday 16th of December will have their kits posted out to them in mid February. 

All other kits can be collected from the festival on Saturday 4th of March from 12 noon to 5pm.  During this time the Bicycle Network team will be on hand to answer all of your questions and some of our wave leaders will pop in for a chat too. At 5pm we'll hold a rider briefing and give you all the information you need for the big day.
