Meeting Point: 

Coming from Sydney, drive into Queenbeyan, turn left at the roundabout where Red Rooster is and stay on this road for about 11km. Park on the side of the road where the gate is. For better directions try this link CORC: Events: Race Venues.


The Community CPS 50km Duo Classic is in it’s second year running and is a joint initiative of Bec Henderson and Canberra Off Road Cyclists. The 50km mountain bike pairs race will again be held at Kowen Forest, just outside of Canberra. The race will be held on the 19th of January 2013.

Riders enter in teams of 2 but this is not a relay style event like the common endurance events. It’s about you and your teammate working together and having a good time while riding some of the best single tracks that Canberra has to offer.

Each pair must start and finish the race together. The course will be a 25km loop of single track and fire road in which each pair will complete two laps. This will ensure riders have the chance to discover, learn and enjoy the course while having the opportunity to pass through the start/finish area to pick up water and nutrition supplies for the second half of the race. The finishing time of the pair will be recorded as the second rider crosses the finish line.

For riders who are not confident in completing the 50km race there will also be a Novice and Under 17 category. These pairs will do just one lap of the 25km loop.

Event centre is at Sparrow Hill, with the race loop including both Sparrow Hill and Kowen Forest tracks.
