Newcrest Orange Challenge
Some tips from the locals
Need a short spin in Orange to warm up before the ride? Here are two loops recommended by the locals to get you started.
Mt Canobolas Tea House ride
A 26.7 km out and back with 400m of climbing that takes you to the base of Mount Canobolas (when you hit the Tea House you know you’re there – stop in for a coffee).
Ride to the top of the “Nob” to make it 38km with 816m of climbing at the risk of your legs hating you during the Newcrest Orange Challenge.View route
Orange Lucknow Loop
A 34.2 km loop with 293m of climbing that takes you out around the airport, but there is a small stretch of gravel road.
A road bike with standard road tyres will be fine. This is more an out and back with a loop near the airport. A very popular ride during the week for the locals.View route
