This year the Wodonga and District Turf Club have gone out of their way to help out with the running of the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge. Not only have they given us the area to use to hold the event, but are also setting up a lot of the areas for the cyclists, families and their friends. This has been a great help to the Rotary Club of Bellbridge and the great volunteers that would have to normally do this task. Please respect the race course area and amenities and enjoy the day.
The Wodonga Racecourse Precinct is within 1.5km of the Wodonga CBD on Hamilton Smith Drive. The racecourse is grassed and tall shady trees line the course. There is also secure fencing surrounding the entire site with two entry/exit points.
The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge has previously taken place in Albury, with the start and finish line being at Norieul Park. Due to a significant increase in traffic management fees in NSW, the event organisers have made the decision to move the event to Wodonga on the Victorian side of the mighty Murray River.
Each course has a different start time so please ensure you have the correct information:
Thurs. 21st February 4.30 pm to 7.00 pm, (Wodonga Racecourse))
Fri 22nd February 4.30 pm to 7.00 pm at Wodonga Racecourse , or on
Ride Day, 30 minutes before the START of YOUR ride at Wodonga Racecourse.
What to Bring
As our event takes place in the height of summer, we recommend you bring loads of sunscreen, a hat or cap, and a large water bottle (there will be filtered water on site to refill your bottle).
Remember to bring your bib if you collected it earlier than Ride Day and feel free to bring along some cash to support our CHILL Zone vendors and buy some Lake Hume Cycle Challenge merchandise on the day.
