Your Bike a Retro? If so Why Not Get On It?

Postby shpkiwi » Thu May 09, 2013 4:18 pm

In each of the Female and Male 60 km categories of ride in the 2013 NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge there will be the opportunity for special prizes for those who ride a retro bike.

Our definition of a retro bike is "one with a steel frame and downtube shifters". If that's what you have why not ride it in this year's Challenge?

This is the fourth year of the Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge with more riders participating throughout NSW and the other states.
The Event is a ride of up to 100 kilometres starting and finishing at the Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores.
The challenge is very popular with events for the rider that likes a challenge plus the scenic views and relaxed environment.
The 2013 Challenge, being held on the 4th August, will have eight different categories to enter suiting all cyclists.

Riders from all levels, from a fun ride to the serious rider who wants to be competitive.

Really well organised great event with extremely cheerful helpful people.

Sensational picturesque scenery and the challenge of the undulating hills.

Friendly relaxed sensational atmosphere equivalent of the City to Surf.

There is less than 88 days before the next Challenge and the Early Bird discount is still available if you enter now. Go to

It's about a week before the Noosa Strada Bianchi.

Would suit me, might be able to catch a train to Coffs.

At present there are riders throughout New South Wales plus riders from Queensland, Victoria and the ACT participating in the event. Details of the event can be found at

A lucky rider in this years event will win a Trek Madone 5.2 Cycle. Recommended Retail Price over $3,500.

This year riders have the opportunity for the first time to enter the NAB Coffs Coast Cycle Challenge Video Competition. Create a video of your ride on the day of the Event. The judges will be looking for action, scenery, colour and excitement but most of all lots of fun and smiles; perhaps a few grimaces.

Plus there are several attractions to entertain participants and their families during the day up to the presentation at the end of the event.

In addition there is the Sunday Market with a wide range of merchandise on sale and live entertainers and music and within walking distance of the event area there is the fish market and a wide selection of restaurants and the Yacht Club
