It’s a fast downhill start along Anzac Parade, taking in the views of Parliament House as you head towards Lake Burley Griffin. A smooth bike path winds its way around central basin, across Commonwealth Ave bridge, via Lennox Gardens and up to Parliament House.
Next up is a douche grade climb up Melbourne Ave as you head for the trails at Red Hill!
It’s time to hit the dirt and the hills as you climb up some single track and stairs, past the Dr Who Tardis and top out at Red Hill Drive.
Taking in the views at the first water station, 25km participants veer right along a steep downhill and then onto single track along the edge of the Federal Golf Club.
