With a dramatic change in weather over the last 24 hours, we are all set and excited for a cool Saturday morning ride tomorrow, for Round 3 of the Cyclo Sportif. Starting at 9am at The Range, the ride will proceed Norwood Cycling Club’s history-making 100th Port Noarlunga Classic.
After positive feedback from Round 2 of the Sportif at the picturesque Snapper Point, Cycling SA is looking forward to the ten plus teams ride The Range – a course that is always one of the series favourites. Rolling hills, a fast (but straight!) downhill and a testing climb back to the line make the Range one of the harder rounds. The round also features sweeping views from the ridgetop – so if you want to take your time – there is plenty to keep the mind occupied!
Although not a race as such, there is still plenty of competition displayed. The teams get to choose from 2, 3 or 4 laps of the 17km course, with prizes awarded to the fastest men’s, women’s and mixed teams.
Prizes are provided with thanks from PEDALIT, Science in Sport and KOM Coffee, with much of the field taking home something for their efforts.
