he Scenic Off-Road Tour for Everyone
A joint venture of CORC and Pedal Power, the 2013 Centenary Trail Blaze is a 130k off-road cycle event staged over 2 days. A mass participation event rather than a competition, it showcases the newly commissioned Canberra Centenary Trail and its environs.
Each stage of the event is a loop of approximately 65k:
Stage 1: Southern Loop, Sat 30 Nov – Blundells Cottage to Tuggeranong & return;
Stage 2: Northern Loop, Sun 01 Dec – Blundells Cottage to Hall & return.
The 2 stages are on good quality fire roads and shared paths with gentle grades, suitable for cyclists with basic off-road riding skills. Approximately 75% of the road surfaces are unpaved, but are suitable for any mountain bike and most other bicycles with the right tyres. Interaction with motor traffic is minimal, confined to a few road crossings.
