For 2017 riders will be timed for this 120km loop! Just because it misses out on the 40km Kangaloon Loop does not mean that this is going to be easy. During the course, riders will climb over 1,300m of ascent – it’s not called the Southern Highlands for nothing!

Sample the Southern Highlands. This is one way to earn your cake, wine and lunch! Pump up your tyres and get ready for an adventure. See you at the start line before you head off to Sample the Highlands. Note there is a shortcut which shortens the ride to be 35km – if riders take this shortcut they will miss out on the wineries.
