Fitz’s Challenge was first held in 1989 with just thirty-seven riders. Now, nearly three decades later, more than 1200 people come together every year on the last Sunday in October to tackle this legendary event.
Only the hardiest of riders can claim to have conquered the legendary hills of Fitz’s Challenge.
With five rides of varying distances, there’s something to challenge every rider from the eager novice to the seasoned climber. While all five rides are known for their tough hills, only the longer distances ask riders to tackle the legendary Fitz’s Hill, the epic climb after which the event is named.
Fitz’s Challenge has supported The Kids’ Cancer Project since 2009 by assisting the organisation to raise much-needed funds for research projects.
