Community Challenge

Have you ever wanted to ride the Menzies Classic - Chas Egan Memorial Race but felt that 132 km was a bit too far and serious for the recreational rider? Does 35km seem a bit more reasonable?

Do you have three like-minded colleagues?

If so, why not join together with your work-mates, gym buddies or your mates and participate in the Community Challenge?
The 132 km is broken up into four approximately equal sections. The first rider completes the section out of Kalgoorlie to Paddington, hands over to their team-mate who then pedals off to Davyhurst. Here number 3 team member is waiting. Number 3 pedals onwards to Comet Vale where the final team member will then cross the finishing line in Menzies.

Each team will need a vehicle and support person to carry all riders and equipment. Each team is responsible for placing its own rider at each handover point.

Can’t find three other people? No problem – teams can be up to four members so teams of two and three are also encouraged to participate. For those riders who just want to finish the event and not be part of the handicapped race, you can also ride the Community Challenge as an individual. More details in the attached Community Challenge information sheet.  

Cycling Australia require that you hold a license for insurance purposes.  As this is a Cycling Australia sanctioned event we are bound by their policies and procedures. Part of your entry fee will go towards a Cycling Australia day license so you will be fully covered.

NOTE: No headphones or go pro's are allowed during the ride.
