Race description

Illawarra Cycle Clubs road course runs over the rolling country side of Avondale and Calderwood Rds. With short climbs to test the legs of riders of all abilities, we have traffic marshalls stopping the minimal vehicles at all turn arounds and intersections.

Races start on Sundays at 8.30am (daylight savings time) or Saturdays at 2.00pm (Easter Standard time), you need to be there at least 30 mins prior so you can register, pin your number and place the transponder on your bike. The cost for general club races is $15 paid on the day.

How to get there

By car to Don’s Farm (see map) or if you are keen for a warm up pre-race, a pack ride leaves Figtree Cellars carpark (see map) one hour before the race. The pack ride quite often heads for a coffee and chat post-race.

Course description

Heading east along Avondale Rd along the start/finish straight into rolling terrain for 4km, the first leg tester is “Hooker Hill”. If you have made it over with the bunch, you will get a small reprieve then turn right at Marshall Mount Rd , the turn around point for the 36km short course is just after Hooker Hill, but you will do 4 laps. Up and back = 1 lap. (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/19129521)
