One of Australia’s toughest hill climbing events, the Fitz’s Challenge, returns on Sunday 28 October 2018.
Online registrations open on Friday 1 June and close at midnight on Thursday 25 October.
You can also register in person on:
- Saturday 27 October from 2 – 6 pm at Abode Hotel Woden, 10 Bowes St, Woden.
- Sunday 28 October (event day) at the event hub at Stromlo Forest Park, Opperman Ave, Stromlo, before the start of your ride.
It is a requirement of the event’s approval that participants’ helmets are checked for an Australian Standard sticker prior to registration packs being provided. This is not a Pedal Power ACT policy, however, it must be conducted to comply with regulations. Participants need to ensure the helmet they are using has an Australian Standard sticker, and be prepared to present it when collecting their rider pack before the event.
