New Event Date – Sunday 12 September 2021
2020 was a tough year as we continue to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many organisations such as ours were forced to shuffle their scheduled events to adapt to the constantly changing landscape.
This resulted in an unfortunate clash of dates between the Newcrest Orange Challenge and the 2020 L’Etape which recently postponed to the same weekend. Due to this conflict, Bicycle Network has changed the date of the 2021 Newcrest Orange Challenge to Sunday 12 September 2021. All registrations have been automatically rolled over to the new event.
We understand this may not suit everyone, therefore if you wish to obtain a refund, please contact the Bicycle Network team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us on 1800 639 634.
We can’t wait to head back to Orange and we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Choose your challenge
Newcrest Orange Challenge is a true Spring Classic. The car-free country roads are punctuated with pinchy climbs, rolling hills and challenging road surfaces that make the event no mean feat. Your efforts on the bike will be rewarded with sweeping views of the beautiful region. Not to mention the crisp beverage waiting for you at the finish line.
“A demanding yet highly achievable route and the promise of sampling some of the country’s top drops? We couldn’t resist taking a better look.” Cyclist Magazine
