Cranky Sam’s Revenge

April 20, 2024 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The event name seeks to build on the legend of Cranky Sam, a Chinese immigrant who came to Australia during the 1860’s Gold rush and turned to bushranging when he failed to strike it rich. His reign of terror in the Central West was shortlived when the authorities soon brought him to justice, though not before shooting a policeman and holding up several parties on the Mudgee-Gulgong trail.

The event will feature three different courses of Gravel cycling that will take in the best of the natural beauty of the Orange region and will also showcase the fine food and drink available in the area.

Your entry will include:
A full day of riding on some of the best champagne gravel roads in Australia
Professional event pics from ReadyAimMedia
Entertainment and a fully stocked food and drink festival designed to recover weary muscles after your epic ride
On-course Feed zone and mechanical support
Fully insured event with approval from local council and authorities
Your own limited edition commemorative patch.

Short Course: 35km
Medium Course: 65km
