Whether you are an experienced rider looking for a challenging ride, someone new to the sport who is just learning the ropes, or just a rider who enjoys the social side of events, this ride has something for everyone.
The Blue Pyrenees Magic Bike Ride will start and finish at the fabulous Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard, located seven kilometres north west of the township of Avoca.
The route will be the Audax “Pyrenees Magic” which circles around the undulating foothills of the Pyrenees Ranges. The event goes through the townships of Moonambel, Landsborough, Elmhurst, Amphitheatre and Avoca. The total distance is 114 kilometres with a vertical rise of approximately 1500 metres.
For cyclists wishing a shorter distance or those just starting out, the shorter ride to Moonambel (with a stop for coffee) and back to Blue Pyrenees Estate is a comfortable 46 kilometres on flat roads.
For the longer ride there will be a food stop in Landsborough (50 kilometres) and another drink stop at Elmhurst (75). A free sausage sizzle and soft drink awaits at the rotary barbecue at the end of the ride and meals can be purchased at the onsite Cafe Blue at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
