Start training now for the New 2019 Rides.
The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge, run each February by the Rotary Club of Bellbridge-Lake Hume and partners, is one of the best weekends cycling in the breathtakingly beautiful North East Victoria region, passing by the impressive body of water that is Lake Hume.
The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge 2019 will be held on Saturday, February 23rd, with rides to cater for all fitness levels and abilities. The road rides take in spectacular undulating hills, attractive farmlands, river flats and the impressive Lake Hume. Shorter town and family friendly rides meander along paved and gravel bike paths incorporating natural bushland, friendly streets and picturesque creeks.
The start and finish will be at the Wodonga Racecourse and from 11am, as riders begin to return, the Chill Zone will allow them to rest and revive. It is here that riders and their families can be part of the “cycle community” catching up with old mates and making new friends. Savour some satisfying stall food and enjoy the sweet chill out sounds of talented local musicians.
The aim of the event is to raise money for very worthy local causes. We also aim to promote regular exercise, encourage family participation and social connections, raise the profile of cycling in the local area and promote the Albury Wodonga region as a great base for safe and scenic recreation cycling.
Money raised through the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge 2019 will go towards the Wellness Centre within the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre. Over the past six years, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the cause.
