Overview

The Five Peaks Challenge Bike Ride is a non-competitive cyclo-sportive bike riding and fundraiser event conducted by the Murrumbidgee Canberra Rotary Club. The ride takes cyclists around the roads of Canberra and adjacent areas so you can see Canberra from the saddle.

It’s a great personal challenge allowing you to ride your bike up the six peaks of Canberra – Mount Stromlo, Red Hill, Mount Pleasant, Mount Ainslie and Black Mountain and Dairy Farmers Hill (in the Arboretum).There are two riding length options – 88 km or 120 km but you can pick as many or as few peaks as you wish to shorten your ride and your climbing. You can ride the peaks while your partner rides the flat.

The Rotary Club provide course signage, marshals along the route, snacks at the top of each peak, two feeding stations, sag wagon, sausage sizzle at the finish, a record of your achievement, and more.

You can ride any human-powered pedal cycles including unicycles, bicycles, tandems, recumbents, tricycles, quad-cycles, electric power-assisted cycles (e-bikes), and kick bikes, but not electric mobility scooters, electric scooters, Segways or motorised cycles (electric or petrol motor bikes).
