Event Postponed – Sunday 12 September 2021

2020 is certainly keeping us all on our toes as we continue to deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many organisations such as ours have been forced to shuffle their scheduled events to adapt to the constantly changing landscape.

This has 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 will be postponing the 2021 Newcrest Orange Challenge to Sunday 12 September 2021. All registrations will be 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 riderservices@bicyclenetwork.com.au. 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.
