The Bike leg

Upper Murray Challenge mountain bike leg is proudly sponsored by FULL CYCLE ALBURY

Competitors cycle 28 km over hilly forest trails, 4wd tracks and open paddocks in and around Khancoban township. From the start outside the general store, competitors follow residential streets onto a short section of forest trail that leads onto a hilly 6,5km loop on 4wd tracks and singletracks above the golf course and town. Check the image bellow to make sure you understand 1st/2nd loop turn off. It will be clearly marked and marshalled but a general understanding is required. 

Instead of heading back, competitors then will complete another larger (10km) loop with less singletrack and more of 4wd tracks (and climbing again). The route then returns over the forest trail section, follows some quiet backstreets and crosses the Alpine Way near the dam wall after a full 18 km of hard work.

Next loop goes through Snowy Hydro managed land and enters to Khancoban Station fields. It is mainly 4wd tracks, which can become dirty and swampy in wet weather. After about 5km, course crosses the river and then return back to the TA1, via Charlie Finlay land and then Snowy Hydro land again.

It takes between 90 and 180 minutes to complete the MTB course. Use of ‘slick’ tires is not recommended and competitors should have plenty of steep hill climbing practice.
