The Ballarat Cycle Classic provides cycling enthusiasts with the opportunity to experience the much-vaunted Australian National Road Cycling course. Be in Ballarat on the weekend of 18-19 February for this time honoured event that raises funds for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute.
There is an event for every fitness level and cycling ability - 50km, 60km, 85km and 100km, all of which take in varying degrees of the National's course, including the infamous climbs around Mount Buninyong. There will be mountain bike challenges, ranging from a 28km up to a 50km course, and the relay around Lake Wendouree is a firm favourite - do as many or as few laps as you wish within the 2.5hour time limit. Or if wheels are not your thing, take on the 6km lake walk or run.
Entry fees depend on the event being entered.
