SPRING CLASSIC

Cancelled for 2021

We will be back for 2022

The Spring Classic features 3 route distances for family fun, novice, and experienced cyclists in the majestic Yarra Valley.

A family trail ride up to 15km with turn around points to allow you to cover as much or as little distance as you want.

A novice cyclist distance of 40km with a few challenging hills to get the heart pumping.

An 85km ride with some serious climbing and gravel for the experienced road cyclist.

At the start you’ll collect your ride jersey and a drink and head off on your chosen route. Ride captains will be out on the road with course marshals to make sure you’re headed in the right direction and assist you if you need it.

You will ride through the majestic Yarra Valley and return to Lilydale for a refreshment and something to eat where special award ceremony and prizes will conclude your morning ride.

All proceeds of the ride will go to one of the 2 chosen charities, either Southern Cross Kids’ Camps or Bridge Builders Youth Organisation
