Who will conquer the No. 3 Creek Valley in 2023!
Yes it’s that time of the year again when we pit ourselves against the climb out of the No. 3 Creek valley.
By a straw poll of those who attended last week’s Seymour ride, we have decided to turn this year’s event into an out and back format to reduce the amount of riding we need to do to get to the actual challenge site. Overall though, you will still ride an acceptable distance of 24km. As some have probably already worked out that because you are riding in from Kilmore, now it is no longer necessary to ride out of the valley, therefore the actual ride up the hill (the challenging bit) is now optional.
To make your effort worthwhile, John will again offer the incentive of a free coffee or drink of your choice after the ride for all who make it to the top without stopping. Good luck!

Mostly gravel and steep hills so MTB or Hybrid is best.
Meet at the Hudson Park carpark in Skehan Place for an 0900 start.
