Calling all cycling enthusiasts! One of the most highly anticipated weekend cycling events in North East Victoria is here once again. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Bellbridge-Lake Hume and their partners, the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge 2018 returns for its annual run. The event, held on Saturday 24th of February, 2018, will offer rides suitable for all fitness levels and abilities so everyone can join in!

One of the unique things about this cycling challenge is that it enables participants to appreciate Lake Hume. The road rides will give cyclists spectacular views of undulating hills, farmlands, river flats, and the impressive Lake Hume. Meanwhile, short town and family-friendly rides feature paved and gravel bike paths that incorporate natural bushlands, friendly streets, and local creeks.

Charity Bike Ride

The Lake Hume Cycle Challenge is one of the most well-known charity bike rides in NSW and for a good reason. The event seeks to raise money for local charities while promoting regular exercise and encouraging family participation and social connections. In fact, for the last six years, the event has raised more than $100,000 for local causes. The organisers also want to make cycling a popular activity in the local area and promote the Albury Wodonga region as an ideal base for safe and scenic recreational cycling.

The money raised by this year’s event will go to the Wellness Centre of the Albury Wodonga Regional Cancer Centre. To join the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge 2018, register here.
