Cyclocross right in the heart of Melbourne

City CX is a boisterous bike riding extravaganza, the likes of which have never been seen before in our city. Featuring a short, technical urban CX course around Fed Square and River Terrace, the day is packed with high-energy time trials and crit-style events in the heart of the city.

Come for the riding, stay for the live local beats and famous Melbourne hospitality. Just don’t miss it!

Whoa, hit the brakes! This isn’t your typical CX race…

City CX is an open event*, with time trial qualifiers meaning you’ll be graded into a group stage with riders of a similar standard.

Want to dust off your old mountain bike? Sure. Think a Brompton will give you the edge? Have a crack. This is your chance to tackle some unrivaled urban terrain. However, due to the technical nature of the course and group stages, we ask that you are confident handling your bike around obstacles and riding in a bunch.

*Please familiarise yourself with the City CX terms and conditions before registering.
