Cycling Events / Do you have a Retro Bike ? Why not get on it.
« on: April 28, 2014, 01:36:49 am »
Female and Male 60 km and 100 km categories of ride in the 2014 NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge will again have the opportunity for special prizes for those who ride a retro bike.
 
Our definition of a retro bike is "one with a steel frame and downtube shifters". If that's what you have why not ride it in this year's Challenge?
 
This is the fifth year of the Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge with more riders participating throughout NSW and from the other states.  The Event has rides of up to 100 kilometres starting and finishing at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores plus the C4 hill climb.  The challenge is very popular with events for the rider that likes a challenge plus the scenic views and relaxed environment. The 2014 Challenge, being held on the 3rd August, will have seven different categories to enter suiting all cyclists.

Riders from all levels, from a fun ride to the serious rider who wants to be competitive. Really well organised great event with extremely cheerful helpful people. Sensational picturesque scenery and the challenge of the undulating hills.

Entries are now open for the NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge, and this year riders can test themselves with an extra challenge on the day before the big event.

On Saturday 2 August the C4  Hill Climb Time Trial will challenge riders with a timed 13 km climb up the road from Coramba along the East Dorrigo Way. This is a new event for 2014 and the organisers expect to see some good times as riders test their legs. Riders will leave at 30 second intervals with the first rider away at 2pm. To join the individual time trial riders will also need to enter the NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge which runs on Sunday 3 August.

If a 13km uphill ride isn’t for you, there are still plenty of other choices for the NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge. This popular charity road ride is run by the Coffs City Rotary. Each year hundreds of riders come to cycle along the quiet local roads riding from the Coffs Harbour beaches into the Bellingen hills and back. There are lots of choices from the 100km solo challenge, teams options, 60km solo and a 20km or 10km family ride.

The 60km and 100km options are a great way to set yourself a challenge to ride further or faster than you’ve ridden before. If you are an experienced rider then why not challenge your mates to train for the distance and help them achieve their goals. There are also rides for the family, so encourage your partner and children to come along and enjoy the 10km or 20km family ride this year.

The NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge is proving its popularity with more and more riders every year, the ride grew from 460 to 731 riders in 2013, and the organisers are preparing themselves for double that number this year.

NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge, 3 August 2014

It’s on again and 2014 will see the NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge bigger and better than ever. There will be more choices for riders, more entertainment and surprises and even more fun.

One happy rider wrote: The event you all put on each year is one of best run and co-ordinated events I ride in. I’m glad the event is growing in popularity and that is a sure sign of how well people think of your ride. I’m more than happy to travel the five hours to Coffs so I can ride and am happy to tell others here, in and around Brisbane about the event. Many organisers could learn a lot from your event.

The NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge is a popular charity road ride run by the Coffs City Rotary. Each year hundreds of riders come to test their legs along the quiet local roads riding from the Coffs Harbour beaches into the Bellingen hills and back. There are lots of choices from the 100km solo challenge, teams options, 60km solo and a 20km or 10km family ride.

A family rider said: I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic time I had on the family bike ride! I’m a 43 year old mum of two who has never done a public event bike ride before and has only really been cycling for the past year, squeezing in little rides around full-time work and family. Your helpers were so encouraging along the way- just so friendly! Congratulations to all who helped out.

This will be the fifth year of the Challenge which has raised over $80,000 for Rotary charities and also provided significant financial help to other non-profit volunteer groups.

If you enjoyed the event in 2013, then it’s time to tell your mates, mark the date in next year’s diary, dust off the bike and get ready to ride. There’s something for everyone with two family ride distances to choose from or 10 or 20km. There’s a 60km solo event and teams choices for the 100km as well as the 100km solo and 100km tandem and recumbent options.

Check the website for training information that will help you prepare for the big day. Registration will open in March 2014.

There’s lots more information on the website: www.coffscoastcyclechallenge.com. You are also able to view a short video of the 2013 event at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kVSIn73XDs

Tony Abbott registers to compete in the Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has today confirmed he will register to participate in the Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge to be held on Sunday August 5.

Federal MP Luke Hartsuyker said he had invited Mr Abbott to be part of the cycle challenge and the Coalition leader’s office had today indicated that, barring any unforeseen circumstances, he will be a starter.

“It is well known that Tony is a keen cyclist so I am delighted that he has agreed to be part of the 2012 ride.

Tony will be on the Coffs Coast that weekend and will participate in the full 100km team ride.

I have registered a Riders on the Hill team which is what the federal parliamentary cycling group is called and all riders on the team will complete the maximum distance.

The cycle challenge continues to go from strength to strength and raise much needed funds for many community based organisations.

It has been successful because it offers something for everyone. You can ride the 100km or you can join the kids on a family ride.

With Tony here on August 5 I trust it will add to what is already a very successful event.”
