145Classic 2018 400 x 400




The 145Classic has left the big smoke and headed south to some of Australia’s prime riding country.

When? Sunday 8th of April 2018. 

Starting from 6:30am, Glebe Park Bowral.
(Registration for Ride B opens 6:30am. Registration for Ride A opens 7:00am).

2018 will see the introduction of a loop course through the Southern Highlands with a start and finish at Glebe Park, Bowral - opposite the Sir Bradman Oval.

There are two distances on offer, the longer distance includes the iconic Jamberoo Mountain climb to Triple Care Farm. 

Triple Care Farm is a youth drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that helps young people aged 16-24 to recover from substance abuse and mental health issues. David Martin Place is on the same property, recently opening in June 2017. This is a youth drug and alcohol detox facility that helps young people in the same age bracket to withdraw from substances in a safe, youth specific environment. 

Ride A – 91km 

Ride B – 141km

Riders will enjoy a morning breakfast BBQ at Bowral and also a BBQ at the finish line to share with family and friends.

This is a fully supported ride. This means that the ride will be completed in groups of between 12-20 riders. Each group will be pre-determined and graded according to ability. Each group will be supported by a SAG (Spares and Gear) vehicle.

General Registration fee: $150 per person

Fundraising target: $500 per person

For those that would like to participate as a team, your fundraising target will be based on numbers, with the principle being that each person in the team raises $500.  eg. 3 x team members = overall target of $1,500.

The overall fundraising target for 145Classic 2018 is to raise $80k for youth in crisis. Funds raised will help young people break free from the early stages of addiction at new youth detox facility, David Martin Place.
