The final Cyclo Sportif of 2018 is only days away, but it is not too late to get involved in Cycling SA’s ride series. Entries are still open for the series finale (until Wednesday 21 November), which encourages riders to enjoy challenging but achievable team rides in picturesque locations across South Australia, whilst improving fitness.
A new location for the year, Mount Torrens, will provide gentle hills with a few sharp pinches to challenge the riders.
The option of two, three or four laps really allows for everyone to have a go – no matter what your starting ability or cycling prowess. More experienced riders can challenge themselves with the longer course (four laps totaling 38.4km), as they take in the beautiful countryside of the Adelaide Hills.
Cycling SA CEO, Lachie Ambrose, notes “this is the last Sportif of the year, and a great final opportunity to get together in a team and get on your bike before the busy Christmas period takes hold! We are thrilled to have the ride in the picturesque suburb of Mount Torrens, flanked by charming vineyards.”
Prizes will again be awarded to the fastest men’s, women’s and mixed teams, with thanks to PEDALIT, Science in Sport and KOM.
