Northern Star Community Challenge

So, what's a Fondo anyway?  "Fondo" is an Italian word for "ride" and this year as part of the Cyclassic we would like to encourage everyone to participate in Day One - Menzies to Kalgoorlie - the Community Challenge.  

Do you have three like-minded colleagues?

If so, why not join together with your work-mates, gym buddies or your friends and participate in the Community Challenge?

The 132 km is broken up into four approximately equal sections. The first rider completes the section out of Kalgoorlie to Paddington, hands over to their team-mate who then pedals off to Davyhurst. Here number 3 team member is waiting. Number 3 pedals onwards to Comet Vale where the final team member will then cross the finishing line in Menzies or all team members can cross the line together.

Each team will need a vehicle and support person to carry all riders and equipment. Each team is responsible for placing its own rider at each handover point.

Can’t find three other people? No problem – teams can be up to four members so teams of two and three are also encouraged to participate. For those riders who just want to finish the event and not be part of the handicapped race, you can also ride the Community Fondo as an individual. More details in the attached Community Challenge information sheet.
