ARC Alpine Challenge 13th-14th Feb 2021
Dates for The 2021 ARC Alpine Challenge are locked in.
It is the Peaks Challenge Falls Creek route over 2 days, held 3 weeks prior to the Peaks Challenge, a total of 250km and 4500vm.
The weekend is great for anyone planning their strategy for the Peaks Challenge, picking up 7 Peaks climb segments, or just for the challenge of being in that spectacular part of the country on a bicycle with the ARC cycling group.
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 provided, so fitness levels must be suitable and bikes mechanically prepared.
Positioning, and independent accommodation is required in, or around, Bright Friday 12th Feb.
Saturday 13th Feb ride from Bright to Anglers Rest via Mt Hotham 139km & 2500vm.
Sunday 14th Feb ride Anglers Rest to Bright via Falls Creek 111km & 2000vm.
Friday 12th and/or Monday 15th Feb – Mt Buffalo rides are often organised by those arriving in Bright earlier Friday or with availability to stay Sunday night on an individual basis, 63km & 1300vm.
Accommodation Saturday night is at The Blue Duck Inn, Anglers Rest.
A SMALL bag can be transferred between Bright and Anglers Rest.
I’ve paid the deposit to secure all 6 cabins. Room for 24-29, dependent on the mix of couples, males, and females.
Feel free to post your interest, but if you do so please put it in your diary at the same time, and consider booking accommodation in Bright Friday night.
Non-cycling partners and family members very welcome.
At this stage the weekend will be planned exactly as last years’, so please refer to the 2020 posts, give me a call, or chat to those you’re riding with for additional detail.
Cheers Wayne. 0403 877 0602020-02-14 at 9:11 pm #58966Robyn CornellParticipant
