If you are thinking of riding A, B, or C grade – and haven't registered yet – get in quick. They are filling up fast, and at this rate will be full in the next 2 hours or so. D is not far behind.

Just clarifying, you need a Gold Licence on the day to race. If you have a silver (Recreational) Licence, you can purchase a gold day licence for aprox $35 together with your online entry and pick up before the race ( allow a bit of extra time). Alternatively you can upgrade your licence from Silve...

Hi Adrian, great! It really is a lot of fun. You will need a silver licence ( otherwise known as a Recreation licence ) to start with, which is the standard DHBC membership licence, but you can buy a Gold licence for the day — approx $35. You must have a gold licence to race (either day or yearly). ...

Re: Rookwood Crits 2015

Same amount of climb as the last course (about 15m), less steep grades, slightly longer. It's lumpy, with a 300m long hill up Weekes Ave (it was the downhill part of the last course - we are just going the other way). https://app.strava.com/segments/9017264 http://i.imgur.com/GUvZOInh.jpg
