The cycling jersey you have in your hand is named after one of our favourite roads. The back of your new jersey features a small profile of a unique section of road that is off the beaten track but well worth a visit.
The challenge we put to local riders is to explore beyond habitual rides; to ride some of the quiet, rarely visited roads that make our region special. Each of the routes we have selected is challenging but with each hill, riders are rewarded with both great views and a deep sense of accomplishment.
To help you get started on the road to exploration we have created routes both short and long to guide you on your way.
For riders feeling up to a bigger challenge we have linked all of our favourite sections into one spectacular ride. The ultimate Small Roads Challenge route takes riders through wooded trails, over challenging hills and explores gravel back-roads to lakeside views and more. Over 120km with 1500m of elevation gain this route showcases the very best of what our region has to offer.
