The 85km road ride is not for the feint hearted. This is when we start getting serious!
One of the most exciting elements to the Ballarat Cycle Classic is that all road courses involve riding the WORLD RENOWNED Australian National Road Cycling Course. How’s that for bragging rights?
The course involves quiet undulating country roads with the 85km event adding the challenge of Mt Egerton hill to the classic Mt Buninyong highway climb.
The course for the 85km goes through Gordon where you will ride past rolling fields, irrigated potato crops and grazing sheep and cattle.
All rides come together in Dunnstown before re-entering Ballarat for a clockwise ride around the lake Wendouree to the Cycle Classic village in Windmill Drive.
