The Northern Beaches Cycling Club will hold a repeat of last year’s YNP Challenge on February 2, with riders following a closed road criterium circuit through the park.
Club president Chris Howard said competitors had described it as the toughest criterium course in WA, with a climb and descent every kilometre giving cyclists opportunities for bold breakaways.
Dr Howard said spectators were welcome, with normal park entry fees applying.
‘In the inaugural 2013 event, a DJ entertained the large crowd who provided great support for all competitors,’ he said.
‘In 2014 we are bigger and better ” plenty of shade, displays and fun for the kids is found on the fastest bend of the course.
‘There will be a bouncy castle, face-painting and places for kids to safely ride their bikes.’ Dr Howard said they designed the event for cyclists of every level, including recreational and elite.
