The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Sparrow Hill
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.

13 and 14 October 2012 at Stromlo Forest Park, Canberra, Australia.

Welcome to the 2012 Scott Australian 24 Hour Mountain Bike Championships.

We've Gone Global. CORC’s Scott Australian 24 Hour MTB Championships is the largest race of its type in the world. So the great fun and participation event that everyone loves is still the same, still at Stromlo, but now its part of WEMBO in Australia, Italy and the UK to provide regular world-level competition for 24 hour riders. But, to all Australian Mountain Bikers, its still "The Scott".

What is The Kowalski Classic?

For nigh on two decades, local trail building legends Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the mysterious Kowalski Brothers have been hand-crafting trails in the ACT region. Thanks to their dirty work, Sparrow Hill and East Kowen Forest have become single track nirvana. The innuagural Kowalski Classic gives you the chance to race it all in one hit. Ride the Bird, then the Kow, then the Bird, then the Kow!

The Kowalski Classic is the ultimate single track enduro with two race distances taking in the very best trails in Sparrow Hill and East Kowen.

Round 3 of the National XC Series is held at Stromlo. I figured its close enough for the Nobmobbers to be interested.

Racaing XC at Stromlo is something else. Sure - riding all the trails in a 24, or at the end of Capital Punishment is good, but imagine hitting the Luge track full gas with fresh legs.....
The XC at National level is not to be feared, just enjoyed. We all spend so much on bikes, kit etc - why not ride with the best in the country - in your own age group?
