Lake Hume Cycle Challenge has rides for cyclists of all levels!
Lake Hume Cycle Challenge is a great day out with rides to suit riders of all fitness levels and abilities. This event is located at Albury-Wodonga, which is located on the border between New South Wales and Victoria.
This cycling event has 4 events on offer:
- 5km to 25km Family “Superhero” ride/walk
- 32km “Weir Wonder” ride
- 79km “Sandy Creek” ride
- 126km “Granya Grind” ride
The Granya Grind is a challenging ride that is based to the east of town. The route is over the undulations of the Murray Valley Hwy along the banks of the Murray river on your right, as you traverse south-east towards Tallangatta. Rest easy trough to Bullioh and the turn left and onto the steady climb towards Mt Granya state reserve on the left and Mt Firebrace on the right. The pass at Granya, which is at about the midpoint of the ride will then take you through to the Murray River near Hore Hill. Continuing on the banks of the southern side of the Murray River to the crossing at Bellbrige. The home straight is almost insight as you turn right into Wodonga and onto the racecourse.
This is a lovely part of Australia to visit and is a great place for a weekend away! Especially when you can combine it with a long ride!
