Iconic Cycling Events around Canberra

Canberra city

Whether you’re visiting Canberra for work or play, hopefully, you’ll find some cycling events that coincide with your trip!

There are some fantastic events that are based within Canberra itself – gruelling climbs like Fitz’s Challenge, or the Giro D’Canberra or Rotaries Five Peaks Challenge.  Or a ride for all the family with the Big Canberra Bike Ride.

There are also some great rides within a 200km radius of Canberra, like the Bowral Classic, L’Etape Australia and the Tumut Cycle Classic.

There’s also some multi-day rides that start in Canberra and either loop back or finish at a different point, like the Zoo2Zoo rides.

You can also have a look and see if any of the local bike clubs have any group rides on offer. And don’t forget to have a look at all the other attractions that Canberra has on offer.

So have a look at our online cycling event calendar, and see if you can find a ride to suit!
