Day in the park

21 March – 22 March 2020

Roberston Park

Our event village at Robertson Park will be a hive of activity over the weekend with local vendors, food & beverages, entertainment and family activities for everyone to enjoy. 

The main spectacle on Saturday will be ‘Prologue in the park’ – a time trial based event with the respective male and female winners riding away with some extra cash for the weekend.

Come and soak up the local community spirit and everything that the wonderful city of Orange has to offer.

Prologue in the Park

Prologue in the park is the Newcrest Orange Challenge’s dash for cash.

It’s a race around Robertson Park and open to anyone who thinks they’re speedy on two wheels.

There’s $1000 cash up for grabs for both the fastest male and female to complete the technical sprint course, not to mention the bragging rights over your fellow riders. And the best bit, it’s FREE to enter!

Will you be taking home the chocolates in 2020?

Registrations open Wednesday 9 October 2019.

Social ride

Warm up your legs on our social pedal, leaving Robertson Park on Saturday midday for a 50km loop ride out to Millthorpe and back.

The ride is supported by Bicycle Network volunteer ride leaders but is on open roads and under normal traffic conditions.

If you’re booked in for the main event on Sunday it’s the perfect opportunity to warm up with family and friends.

Registrations open Wednesday 9 October 2019.
