The route

Starting and finishing in Orange, a 170km loop through NSW's Central West Tablelands awaits you. However, this route is no simple cycle. With no short cuts, never ending hills, uneven roads and sharp climbs totaling 2,200 metres of elevation you will be put to the test.

It's all worth it though, the virtually traffic-free route will have you fooled into believing that you're riding your own European one-day classic. And, once you cross the finish line and complete a lap of honour at the Orange Velodrome, a Finish Festival and cold beer will be awaiting your arrival.
