A DAY IN HELL - SYDNEY

7th April. Our ode to the last great madness of cycling.

Overview

A Day in Hell translates the agony and the ecstasy of the cobbles to Sydney as we take on the finest 'gravé', defined as: "(an area of) farm track/road/footpath/bridleway etc. which consists of potholes, loose paving, stones, rubble, and mud." Starting at the North Side of the Harbour Bridge, expect 100km of mixed-terrain riding towards North Head, Brookvale, Terrey Hills over to Pacific Highway — finishing at The Noble Hops after many arduous secteurs have been tackled. Upon arrival, riders will be greeted with beers and a chance to relive the day's ride amongst formidable company. It is worth noting that Gravé is not gravel. A Day in Hell is built in tribute to a time long before gravel bikes and wide tyre clearances and so is not as off-road focused as a typical gravel route, with non-tarmac sectors making up less than half of the route. Save the date now.

All registered riders will receive their route guidance, GPX files and other pertinent information one week before the event date.

This route includes pathways, unsealed sections and climbs, gravel, mud and other such unpaved terrain. Please expect your average speed to be lower than usual on a road ride and be aware that changing weather conditions, rider density and traffic may make some sections more difficult.

All of our routes have been test ridden and are designed to be 28c passable. However, definitions of this may vary and we recommend a little wider, such as 32-35c. You undertake to ride any route at your own risk to you and your equipment. 

Sign on will be from 6.00-6.25am on the day.

This will depend where you stop and your average speed. We would expect the route to take around 4-5 hours.
