Welcome to the Rotary Rides Canberra Five Peaks Challenge

Next ride on Sunday 30 April 2017

In 2016 riders enjoyed a great ride on a beautiful cool sunny day (13 oC at 9 am and 19 oC at 3 pm) with no wind and great food at the two feed stations.

Historically named 'Five Peaks Challenge' but since 2015, when Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum) was added, it has six peaks.

The non-competitive cyclo-sportive event provides a great challenge as you take on the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum).

There are two ride lengths and you have the option to choose which peaks you climb and which ones you by-pass.

The event is a major fundraising opportunity for Woden Rotary and their supported charities (see below).

Choose your peaks, choose your distance

  • Pick your ride – longer ride (up to 118 km) or shorter ride (up to 83 km)
  • Take on all six peaks for a total elevation gains of about 2,000 m on the longer ride and 1,500 m on the shorter ride – but you can bypass the peaks if necessary for less climbing
  • Food stations available on course
  • Support our designated charityRegister now button

Your help is appreciated ...

All funds raised from the ride go to community projects that Rotary supports.
This year the major charities beneficiaries are:

ROMAC - Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children
