Newcrest Orange Challenge

Warm up ride

Need a short spin in Orange to warm up before the ride? Here are two loops recommended by the locals to get you started.

Ride 1

Mt Canobolas Tea House ride

Warm up bike ride in Orange NSW

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.

Ride 2

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.
