It's no easy cycle

Our Aussie Classic

The Newcrest Orange Challenge is no easy cycle. There are no shortcuts. The quiet and virtually car-free country roads are punctuated with sharp, tough climbs, never ending hills and challenging road surfaces that will put all of your training to the test. But that won’t stop you from cracking a smile…

On-route support

Bicycle Network will be by your side the entire way with full on-route support, including food and rest stops. We’ll take care of everything, so that all you have to do is ride and soak up the beautiful NSW countryside.

Bring your family and friends

With a new event site in the heart of Orange and special family-friendly activities over the weekend, there’s something for everyone to enjoy, both on and off the bike.
