8th-11th Feb 2019 ARC Alpine Cycling Weekend
Planning is underway for The 2019 ARC Alpine Cycling Weekend.
It is the 3 Peaks Challenge route, 4 weeks prior to the 3 Peaks Challenge, a total of 250km and 4500vm covered over 2 days.
The weekend is great for anyone planning their strategy for the 3 Peaks, picking up 7 Peaks passport stamps, or for anyone who just enjoys the challenge of being in that spectacular part of the country on a bicycle with a group of mates.
It is not a race, and everyone rides at their own pace, departing in groups to suit ability, and taking as long as required.
No sag wagon support is guaranteed, so fitness levels must be suitable and bikes mechanically prepared.
A small bag can be transferred between accommodations.
Positioning, and independent accommodation is required in, or around, Bright Friday 8th Feb 2019
Friday 8th Feb pm (optional, and temperature dependent) – Ride from Porepunkah to Mt Buffalo and onto Bright 63km & 1300vm.
Saturday 9th Feb ride from Bright to Anglers Rest via Mt Hotham 139km & 2500vm.
Sunday 10th Feb ride Anglers Rest to Bright via Falls Creek 111km & 2000vm.
Monday 11th Feb am ride Bright to Mt Buffalo return (if too hot Friday)
Accommodation Saturday night is at The Blue Duck Inn, Anglers Rest.
I’ve paid the deposit to secure all 6 cabins. Room for 24-27, dependent on the mix of couples, males, and females.
I don’t need numbers or interest now, just take note of the dates, and perhaps consider accommodation in Bright Friday night. Non-cycling partners very welcome.
At this stage the weekend will be planned exactly as last years’, so please refer to the 2018 post, give me a call, or chat to those you’re riding with, for additional detail.
Let me know of anything you feel didn’t work this year.
I’ll get serious with numbers and detail early November.
Cheers Wayne. 0403 877 060

I know that you have written that you’ll get serious about names and numbers in November… but you might as well put Kate and I on your list now.
It is such a great weekend and we can’t wait.
Thanks for organizing it again!

Good luck with the rebuild Justin, I won’t wait until Nov, I’ll put you down as a starter now before you change your mind.

I need a really good goal for my shoulder recovery, plus I have been meaning to do this for many years – so it must be time! Very keen to join you the 2019 trek. Russell2018-03-07 at 3:34 pm #42131
A lot of rebuild/recovery going on, happy to extend the incentive.
Good to have you along Russell.

Thanks Wayne for organising it once again. I regretted missing it this year because I took a work booking way too early. So I will make sure not to do this again. I would like to join you in 2019.2018-04-03 at 9:38 am #42738
Glad I could give you enough notice to avoid work Shaun.
Good to have you along.
