The Illawarra Cycle Club is located in Wollongong on the South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.
The Illawarra Cycle Club has secured the use of a new, undulating, 8-kilometre race circuit at the top of Mount Keira. The roads are entirely closed to traffic, providing a safe environment for riders of all abilities. The course contains many great vantage points for spectators to catch the action and a start/finish line at the picturesque Robertson’s Lookout.
The club will hold five races across 2022, each catering to riders of all abilities from ”come and try” and A through E grades. Juniors are also catered for in the racing schedule, with a one-lap junior race being held before the day’s primary races.
Roads will be closed to traffic from 1 pm on race day, with the general public able to utilise the course before races starting at 1:30 pm.
These races link with the Wollongong 2022 legacy objective of promoting sport and active participation by increasing the opportunities for bike riders to experience racing in a safe, closed course environment. The event will further promote Wollongong’s UCI Bike City status, act as a tourism drawcard for the area and provide benefits for businesses throughout the LGA.
The Illawarra Cycle Club is building a new criterium track that should be completed before 2022. The new 2km track will be located at the Unanderra Velodrome.
