Course Overview

Come join us to ride the third instalment of the Bowral Classic on Sunday 21 October 2018. All courses have been revamped for 2018. Riders can choose one of the four loops on offer – 175KM MAXI CLASSIC, 120KM CHALLENGE CLASSIC, 90KM ROULEURS CLASSIC or 35KM SOCIAL CLASSIC.

These loops will take you through the beautiful Southern Highlands – the MAXI, CHALLENGE AND ROULEURS CLASSIC riders will go through the rolling hills of Bowral, Berrima, Exeter, Robertson and Kangaloon. For the SOCIAL CLASSIC, riders will once again have a more leisurely, “stop and sample” ride.

All loops will conclude at the Eridge Park where riders can do a victory lap around the velodrome before heading over to the Event Village to grab a well-deserved cold drink and something to eat.

For an exciting new addition as part of the new 175km Maxi Classic course, we will be offering an elite riding group of 75 riders, the HIGHLANDER group. This group will comprise of 75 riders maximum, travelling at an estimated 30km/hr speed and will not stop at any rest stops along the way. The group will be led by a vehicle and a follow vehicle.

You may express interest to be in the highlanders group when registering for the 175km Maxi Classic. The final group of 75 riders will be selected by the Bowral Classic and confirmed in writing early July. We are looking forward to seeing you on Bong Bong St on October 21!
