here are several special events which Bike North holds in most years. Some are limited to members only, others are open to all comers. New events may be added in future and others discontinued. The events tend to evolve and improve.
BN Big Ride Day
Held in conjunction with the AGM, this day is a celebration of cycling in and around BN territory. Several rides begin and end at Sydney Olympic Park.
BN Christmas Party
Held in November each year this event is full of on-bike fun events plus a scrumptious morning tea. This event is held at a number of different venues. See Rides calendar for details.
The Bike North Century Challenge
The Bike North Century Challenge is a personal challenge event for members held on the last Sunday each April. Each small riding group consisting of 2, 3 or 4 riders stays together over difficult and testing terrain to reach the goal of finishing the route. There is a choice of 60km, 100km, 120km, 160km or 200km distances, each of them having significant climbing. All routes have shortcuts which riders can take if they choose. All riders meet up for a post event celebration.
The Bike North Challenge is open to members only but you can easily join Bike North
For more information check out the Bike North Century Challenge page.
Tour de Cowra
Every Easter Bike North runs a series of rides in a country town. The event is open to all, registration is required.
The events allows riders to enjoy un-trafficked roads, to ride at their own pace, and to socialise after rides. Distances range from 45 km to 200 km and terrain can be flat or very hilly. On days where there are long or difficult rides programmed a less demanding choice is usually offered. Most people stay in a caravan park and there is always a communal HQ set up with an urn, tea/coffee and some snacks.
