Beard Industrial Estate

Approvals have been received and this race is going ahead! Please note the increase in entry price to $10.

A rare chance to race on a car-free street crit circuit, the Beard circuit was hard on the legs earlier this year and is sure to challenge riders again.

Location: Beard Industrial Estate, Spongolite Street. Race direction will be anticlockwise.


  • 10:00am: F and E Grade, for 30 mins plus 2 laps
  • 10:40am: D and C Grade, for 40 mins plus 2 laps
  • 11:30am: B and A Grade, for 50 mins plus 2 laps

If we have less than ten riders in a grade, then the lower grade riders will vote as to whether they combine with the higher grade. Otherwise the two grades will race separately but concurrently on the course.

Cost: Entry for this race is $10. The increase is to partially offset the costs of hiring professional traffic controllers in accordance with new TAMS requirements.

Race director: Angus Bell
Volunteers: Pip Henty, Michael Ryan
Traffic controls: Canberra Special Events
