Ride Details

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.

The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge raises money for the local community, with funds going to towards the Wellness Centre within the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre, and the Border Trust.

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!

  1. Would be good promotion for the ride, year-round if a jersey was given to riders who enter.
    Also is a reminder to come back next year!

    1. hi, I agree, I too do like a jersey to remember a ride by and is a talking point at the cafe over a coffee. It is, however, a cost that a lot of the smaller riding events don’t want to bear. Then it comes down to the economics of numbers to make the unit cost of the jersey small and not too prohibitive on the entry price.

      For me, the jersey has to be good quality and a design that is memorable. I still like to roll into work or the cafe on a weekend and someone asks what a ride was like.
      Now I just point them towards CycleDownUnder, (ha ha)
