Lake Hume Cycle Challenge

Postby daviB » Wed Feb 13, 2013 2:31 pm

Not sure if I have posted to the right place, but if you missed the Audax Alpine Classic last month there is good news. There is another ride up that way in a couple of weeks.

It’s the "Granya Grind" ride, part of the Lake Hume Cycle Challenge.

Its not real mountain stuff but at 135 km with rolling hills and the Mt Granya 7km grind its still pretty good riding.
If thats not too you're liking there are 100km and 40km options as well.

It has been written up a few times on the web. There are rider logs about, as well as the course description and profiles including other local attractions.

Not to mention pretty reasonable restaurants and Clubs in Albury Wodonga with renown wineries and breweries just a ½ hours drive away.

Women's National Road team at the Granya Grind!!

Yep. Just read in today's Albury local paper... "Womens' national cycling will be the highlight at this Saturday's Lake Hume Challenge with the Bicycle Superstore Women's National Road team in town... entering the Graya Grind . "Those taking.. that route..will be able to ride along with the national team and get advise on various aspects of the sport."

"Anyone interested in meeting the team can simply participate in the event". Afterwards.. "There will be plenty of people to talk to for those who want to go up that extra level into the national team". They will also be at the local store late in the afternoon.

1 week to go.

All the stars seem to be lining up for the event day to be great riding and socialising. Registrations are running at a record high with good interest in each of the 3 road roads and the short family ride/walk. And weather forecast is great ........ "Sunny, 12 to 29'C, light breeze, chance of rain.. 0%"
