Welcome to the Rotary Rides Canberra Five Peaks Challenge

(With a bonus sixth peak)

It's will be on again on Sunday 29 April 2018

This non-competitive cyclo-sportive event provides a great challenge to ride the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum). It is historically named 'Five Peaks Challenge' but since 2015, when Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum) was added, it has six peaks for you. That's 30% extra!

There are two ride lengths (about 117 km or 88 km) within which you have the option to choose which peaks you climb and which ones you by-pass. Take on all six peaks for a total elevation gains of about 2,000 m on the longer ride and 1,450 m on the shorter ride – but you can bypass the peaks if necessary for less climbing. And there are food stations and support available on the course.

And this is a great way to see Canberra from your saddle.

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

All funds raised from the ride go to community projects that Rotary supports.
This year we are raising funds to buy a tri-shaw as part of 'Cycling Without Age' at a local aged persons facility and to support ROMAC
