Woden Rotary Club is bringing the Five Peaks Challenge back to Canberra.

It provides a great challenge to ride the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum).

It has been named ‘Five Peaks Challenge’ since its inception in 2004, but since 2015, when Dairy Farmers’ Hill (in the Arboretum) was added, it has six peaks for you – a 20% bonus.

Five Peaks Challenge has two length options, 88 km or 120 km both with six peaks. You can ride as many or as few peaks as you wish and ride the distance that suits you between 57 km and 120 km.

COVID-19 conditions have limited the number of participants allowed.

Let’s all keep healthy and riding our bikes while exercising good hygiene and social distancing
to stop or slow the spread of the infectious virus.

Forrest Hotel and Apartments has a special deal for riders who are travelling from interstate.

All profit from the event goes to selected charities, Sleepbus for homeless women and children in Canberra and Rotary Australian Health for mental health research.

Registration is essential, and on-the-day registration will only occur if spots are remaining.

The details

When: Sunday 18 April 2021, on-the-day registration opens at 6:00am.
Where: Stromlo Forest Park
Cost: $97 – $110, register here.
