Bike 100km

This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

Our Easter Cycle weekend (19-22 April) is the ideal long weekend of relaxed fun for family and friends. From long day-trips chasing the horizon for committed roadies, to little loops for tackers on trainer-wheels - as well as our famous Night Ride - our Easter Cycle has plenty in the program to keep the entire mob occupied all long-weekend.

There will be rides of varying distances sufficient to challenge roadies and the mountain bikers. Rides have also been planned for those looking for a more leisurely time out on their bikes, and, of course, the younger members of the group including the ever popular Easter Egg Hunt.

  • Explore the region, steeped in history, quiet bike tracks, Moonta Bay, with its stunning beaches and sandy coves, Port Hughes, Kadina, and, of course, cafes and coffee shops, and time perhaps to watch the sun setting after another great day's riding (walking, reading a book or relaxing).
  • Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday morning
