Two Monkeys Sportives
If you want to see the world, ride with your favourite monkeys, or see how far and how fast you can go, a sportive (or Gran Fondo as they are sometimes referred to) is a great way to do it.
Here at TMC we connect riders with each other and help organise groups to participate in sportives around the world.
Below are the Spring Sportives we are supporting this year. To register your interest for any of the below, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help support your next sporting challenge.
Fitz’s Challenge - Canberra
Fitz’s is a great weekend away in Canberra, and is a fantastic target to get you training coming out of Winter hibernation. The Fitz’s classic 165k with 3,200 mtrs of climbing is one of the tougher sportives in Australia. There are 17 climbs including the brutal Fitz’s hill - 2.4k @ 10%. There are easier and harder options, so pick your poison. We always get a strong crew for this event.
Bowral Classic - Southern Highlands
The Bowral classic is a new event on the calendar, and being so close to home, it's on the must do list. Rolling hills of the highlands make this a nice challenge with some beautiful countryside. With a 7am start, it’s going to be an early drive down from Sydney for those not staying locally.
Sydney to the Gong
This mass participation event attracts riders of all types for the 90k journey from Sydney Park down along the coast to Wollongong. With a worthy cause, this is one we love to support. There will be groups departing from our Alexandria Store and from our Penshurst store if you want to avoid the big crowds at the start. There will even be a few hardy souls riding back! And make sure you drop by the TMC area at the finish for a drink and to refuel on us!
Lake Taupo Cycle Challenge - New Zealand
Beautiful. New Zealands Lake Taupo region is a stunning place to ride your bike, and what better way to do it that with a fully supported Sportive with a bunch of your mates. This is best done as a 4 day trip minimum, flying out of Sydney to Auckland. After car hire, Taupo is a few hours drive away to what will inevitably be some great accomodation in Taupo itself. Don't miss out on the hot springs for a pre or post race soak! We have a team for this one already and places are limited, so drop us a line if you’re interested in coming along for the ride!
Got another Sportive in mind? Drop us an email, because there is a good chance other riders will also be interested and we can add it to our list. We are happy to add it to our ride calendar.
