Choose your challenge
Newcrest Orange Challenge is a true Aussie classic. Closed, 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.
“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

Buy a bale for our Aussie farmers!
When you live in the city, it’s easy to ignore that the farmers in Central West NSW are struggling through the worst drought in decades. We’re hoping to raise more than $10,000 to support the towns who have opened their doors to the Newcrest Orange Challenge. We’ll lead by example and kick it off by buying the first 100 bales.
