Australian Capital Territory

The Australian Capital Territory and surrounding countryside are cycling nirvana.

Cycling is very popular in all its forms from road racing to touring to off-road mountain biking. Long-distance bicycle rides are an established part of the local scene.

There are many good rides available within the relatively small area of the “Territory”. Our rides generally cross the border into New South Wales, opening up a vast network of roads for cycling through very pleasant countryside. Most of the ACT Region’s Audax group reside in Canberra and nearby New South Wales. Many of the ACT Region Members are experienced and committed long-distance cyclists and are only too happy to assist new riders and offer advice and support.

Audax ACT Region rides include single-day rides or multi-day journeys, exploring areas such as the Riverina, the Central West, and the Southern Highlands.

Challenging rides in the NSW alpine areas include the Snowies Epic 300 which is usually calendared every two years and the extremely challenging Permanent, the Snowies 600km ride with 10,000 metres of climbing and 60 hours to complete.

Safety is a priority with organisers. Rides use quiet back roads and when this is not possible, main roads with wide safe shoulders.

Rides generally start in Canberra or within a short ride/drive of the city. Please contact the ride organiser at least 3 days before the ride to confirm your participation and to obtain details such as the start location and time. Feel free to contact the Rider Organiser beforehand to discuss any aspects such as difficulty, terrain, road types, and lighting requirements.
