3 Peaks launch

Cyclist magazine heard about 3 Peaks Pro Team member Alex Malone’s ride to launch the 2014 event and didn’t want you to miss out

When: 6.30am Sunday 1 September 2013

Where: Meet at the base of Sydney Harbour Bridge steps, Milsons Point. North side – cyclist pathway. The ride will finish with coffee and/or breakfast at a local cafe.

Ride description: This is a great opportunity to taste some of Sydney’s most favoured climbs. There are three significant challenges along the way however, none are too difficult for those looking to the Victorian Alps in early 2014. There will be about 2,000m of vertical ascent over the distance with a number of predetermined water stops. This is a relatively testing route so riders should arrive prepared for around 4.5 hours of riding.

Ride distance: Approximately 130km from the start point at Milsons Point
