There are some fantastic century rides in Australia, with over sixty on offer each year.

You’ll find century bike rides of the Metric 100km or Imperial 100km mile.

A century ride is very much like a gran fondo but the emphasis is on the distance, rather than scenery.

  1. Hi,
    Would be great if you could include the Gears and Beers festival in Wagga Wagga on this list, featuring the Dirty 130 (130kms). Riders in 2019 included Phil Anderson and Henk Vogels (with commentary from Mike Tomalaris). All proceeds go to local charities (almost $200,000 in 2019) and finishes with one of Australia’s best craft beer festivals at the finish line!

      hi Liam,
      Thanks for the comments,
      I will add the gears and beers ride to the list.

      it is a unique event on the calendar.
      BTW I did do a recon of the route from 2018, which was interesting travelling through the fields and some stretches of gravel to mix it up.

      more than happy to support events in Australia.
      cheers, Jon
