Mongrel Classic routes
The courses all start and finish in front of the Old Rail Museum and Platform of the Richmond Vale Museum. There are actually working train on this line.They will be used for the start gun. Thanks to the great volunteers from the site, there will be rides available later in the day.
The courses all move away from the start and head almost straight into single track after a short area for people to sort themselves out. The course is been lovingly designed, marked and marshalled by the local Mountain Bike Community. Each section is named and has it’s own unique character. The course has lots of turns, twists, drops, descents….you WILL NOT be bored. The course may be tweaked depending on weather and the kindness.
There will be 1 opportunities to refill your water. This will be at 25km for The Full and 20 km for The Half. It is recommended that you start with two full bidons or a drink pack and take sufficient food for your ride.
The event is being assisted by the crew from Kurri Mongrels. There will be marshals at key intersections. If you are having difficulty or identify other competitors with problems, please let these marshals know and we will deploy the appropriate medical or logistical support. A sweep vehicle will collect any withdrawals and respond to any medical emergencies.
