You CAN, you SHOULD, and if you are brave enough to start, You WILL.
Hi all, the Xmas feasting is done and the holidays finished so its time to turn your attention to the Contact Epic for 2018.
So many questions, What course 35km to 160km? New bike? training regime? Do I stop for scones this year? How high will the river be? Will they run out of beer by the time I get back to the Hotel? Can I beat last year’s time……
There is only one real answer: Enter for 2018 and find out.
Planning to become a soldier? Remember only 100 Centurions spots available for the big 160km.
Also any withdrawals prior to April will include a 75% refund no matter what the reason.

“This ride was on my bucket list of rides still to do… I’m 66 so I had to do a fair bit of training as I had been told it was a tough one to complete.. What a day, loved it, felt very pleased with myself at end… The Ride was all it was made out to be and far far more.”
