What to do when you get there
Saturday 10 March
Registration and rider briefing
The Peaks Challenge Falls Creek event village at Slalom Plaza at Falls Creek will be open from 10:00am until 7:30pm on Saturday for bike check, registrations and kit collection, valet drop off and rider briefing. Here’s a quick snapshot of what you’ll need to get done so you’re prepared for Sunday.
1. Bike check
You will need to get your bike checked to make sure it is good to go. Your tyres, brakes and lights will be inspected. We’ll also ask to see that you’ve got spare tubes, a pump or cannisters and two bidons.
Once your bike is checked you can register and collect your rider kit. This will include your valet bags, ride guide and rider number with built-in timing chip to attach to the seatpost of your bike.
3. Valet service
Pack and drop off your valet bags. You should pack one food and one clothing valet bag. They’ll be waiting for you on the route and will be returned to the village at the end of the ride on Sunday.
4. Rider briefing
Riders will need to attend the rider briefing at 6:00pm on Saturday for detailed information about the ride on Sunday including waves, route notes and a safety message.
Sunday 11 March
The day has arrived – you’ll get to put all that training to use and take the ultimate cycling test.
1. Final prep
Make sure everything is ready – have the right clothing, fill your bidons, pack your jersey pockets and have your lights ready.
2. Join your wave
Be in your wave at the start line based on the time you’re aiming to finish the ride in by 6:30am. Waves will be clearly marked.
The first wave will leave at 6:45am and all riders will depart by 7:15am. Take care as you clip in, begin to ride and descend Falls Creek.
