GFB20 is held on the weekend before the NSW September school holidays. We encourage all riders to meet family & friends at the finish line. If you’re staying in the Hunter Valley, this year our event dinner will be held at Harrigans Irish Pub at Pokolbin. If you need to head back to Berowra, book a ticket on the 52 seat coach for you and you’re bike. Rider registration, coach, kit upgrades and dinner tickets can be purchased here.
This year we’re limiting places to 120 riders. Go or Broke is a bunch ride. Each peloton must stay together and has two Ride Captains. When you register you pick a group based on what you think you’re average speed will be over the WHOLE course; 19–21km, 22–23km, 24–25km, 26–27km, 28-29km, 30-31km or 32-33km/h. We do allow people to change groups to ensure safety and an enjoyable day. With the permission of the Ride Captain you can go up a group. If you’re struggling to keep up with the bunch and/or get dropped on all the climbs we’ll ask you to go down a group during the ride. So be careful with your selection. We allow people to change their group two weeks before the event.
Each peloton will have a tailing support car with food, drinks & basic bike spares. We’ll also have St Johns Ambulance offering First Aid on course. For the first 165km (really 167km) each bunch must ride together. No drops. But save your energy. With 15km to go the course is marked and anyone who wants to, can leave their peloton and Go for Broke.
