Export to calendar Back

EVENT - TERRAIN & MAP: This is increasingly rare terrain - there is the more frequently-used spur gully southerly area and the challenging 'boundless plains' to the north - neither portion to date shared by bikes and their tracks. Also, competitors on Courses 1, 2 and 3 (7.2 km; 5.6 km; 4.0 km) do not cross any bush/'jeep' tracks in this unspoiled terrain. There are two novice courses, 5A and 5B, with 5B being the slightly more challenging of the two.

DIRECTIONS: Access via Godfrey's Road off the Strathfieldsaye-Eppalock Rd, approx. 14 km from Strathfieldsaye township. From Melbourne (via Sutton Grange) - turn right at Axe Creek Rd and Eppalock Rd junction - proceed approx. 10.5 km to Godfrey's Rd IMPORTANT: Do NOT choose to access event from the Paton's Road end along what is actually Godfrey's Track.(note:Google calls it all Godfrey's Road!!). Take care on crests while entering along Godfrey's Road.
