Frequently Asked Questions

cyclist icon multicol
How do I find my way along the route? Will it be signposted?

There will be ample signage along the route to ensure that you have a fun and safe journey. In addition, please wave to our friendly volunteers along the route as they will also ensure you are riding along the correct path.

Can I download a map?

There will be plenty of signs and volunteers to ensure you find your way, however you can download the Strava map to your mobile device or Garmin to have the path in front of you at all times. See link to the Strava map on each Route length description, e.g. 100Km route

Will drinks and food be available?

There will be 2 rehydration stations along the 40km route, 3 along the 75km route and 4 along the 100km route. These rehydration stations will provide bananas, water, electrolyte mixes and some energy bars to help you along your journey and prevent dehydration.
There will be a sausage sizzle at the end point hosted by the local Lions Club. The finish point is approximately 1km from the main street where you can also buy lunch or a coffee.

Toilet stops?

There is a public toilet facility at the start and end point at the Bull Paddock and portaloos at the rehydrations stations.

Help along the routes?

The SES will be present to help with any emergencies should they occur. A registered nurse will also be on standby as well as the local ambulance. Tumut Hospital is approximately 3km from the start/end point and will also be on standby incase of any emergency.
There will also be a mobile bike mechanic to ensure everyone completes the ride safely.

Emergencies / accidents – What to do?

In case of an emergency please notify your nearest marshall or call the number at the back of your rider bib. There will also be a sweep vehicle to collect any participants who are unable to finish the ride.

I am only a week-end rider, is the 75 km ride suitable for me?

The 75km ride is not an easy ride and not an incredibly hard ride either. There is a nice climb of 2.5km at the start when you are quite fresh followed by a large flat section through the country side. However towards the end there is a 4km climb. The good thing about this climb is that if you feel that you are unable to complete the climb you can simply perform a U-turn and head back down the hill to the finish line.

Also with the 75km ride, you will have ridden about 53km before you reach a T-Intersection. The 75 and 100km are advised to turn right to make their way to the last hill mentioned. If at that stage you feel that you are tired or unable to complete 75km you can turn left which is the way the 40km riders turn and head straight back to the finish line.

This course was designed in such a way that if someone is struggling for whatever reason, the way back to the finish line is quite easy.

There will be ample rest stops along the route and on the back of your rider number will be an emergency number that for whatever reason if you need help you can call us and someone will attend to you.

Phil Roy: Thanks and congratulations Tumut Classic team for a great event. I was a first timer this year, over from Wagga with a few others, and not a regular road bike rider. We had a great time, the event was fantastic, volunteers super helpful and friendly. The 75K course was a treat, especially with the "hill" at the end. Will be encouraging others to give it a go next year.
