Help raise over $30,000 to support local charities, and make a difference to our community, by joining over 300 cyclists in the 2017 Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge riding through some of the most picturesque countryside of Tamworth and the Peel Valley.

This fun cycling challenge will start and finish at Moore Creek Tennis Club on Moore Creek Road, Tamworth.

Our target is to raise over $30,000 from the Pedal the Peel Cycling Challenge and to distribute the proceeds to Tamworth local charities, and to have fun doing this! So, how can you get involved?

  • Get your friends, family or work mates together and register.

    • The Escorted Course is aimed at riders hitting the road for the first time or riders who do frequent the road and wish to participate in this exciting challenge. It will be led by a safety vehicle and have experienced cyclists assisting riders along the course.
  • Start training!  It is a fun cycling challenge, but it is important to practice beforehand.
