Celebrating our 6th year, come and take on the challenges around Berry and Kangaroo Valley where spectacular cycling combined with some amazing gradients make for fantastic riding. We will be heading to areas never explored before on a Berry Challenge with a little dirt and the usual climbing bonanza!

The Rides

Sunday, April 7th and the rides are free.

All rides will have a ride captain (guides Cameron, Sam, Max and Isabel will be there) so we can show you the best of the region. Both the 100km and 80km include 2 well groomed dirt sections and our usual optional extra challenges….

100km with 2000m elevation – 7am departure
80km with 1300m elevation – 7am departure
70km with 1300m elevation – 7am departure (No dirt)
30km with 300m elevation 9am departure

We also offer fruit and snacks to take with you (if you rode with us last year, you know how good these are!)

But most importantly please come and join us for a fantastic post ride get together at our home on Woodhill.

Departure is from Berry Mountain Cycles – https://goo.gl/maps/BdJuGA5RBvK2

Post ride get together

We will also be announcing our new Odyssey for 2021 and the food and wine on the day will set the scene for this epic journey.

The Routes


Berry 100

Berry 80

Berry 70 – No dirt (1km of nice dirt only!)

Berry 30


The hills…

To view the rides in detail including all the climbs and their exact elevations please click here to go to the Ride with GPS site. Once on the site scroll over the elevation profile below each of the maps and you will get the details on the climbing involved. The Berry area is known for its hills. The Berry 100 has 3 major hills, Woodhill Mountain which is 4.3km long averaging 7% with a maximum gradient briefly of 15% near the top. Berry Mountain is 5.2km averaging 8% with a maximum gradient of 13% midway…(this climb is bypassed by the sensible Berry 80!) and Bugong Road which is 1.7km long with an average of 10% with a maximum briefly of 17% – this is also high quality compacted dirt!  They are all challenging but worth the effort.

The Extra Challenges

What would one of our rides be without a few extra optional climbs?? These are all optional out and back climbs and none need to be ridden to complete the ride. They will be marked by a wolfs head at the bottom and the distance and gradient. Look out for these on your way around the course… This year there are 4 optional extras building up all the way!

  1. Gormans – A littley to start with – 200m @ 10% – Ascent =
  2. Cambewarra Lookout (only for the Berry 100) – 600m @ 13%
  3. Jarrett’s Carrot – 1.9km @ 9% (note 20%+ brief sections and a cattle grid but beautiful views!!)
  4. Brown’s Mountain – 2.4km @ 12% (note 20% + sections here too….)
  5. Woods Hill – 100m @20% – Our driveway….you have to earn your lunch with this last pinch of the day. Stay seated and push it isn’t long and it is paved but a little gravelly…

Total addition 10km (up and down) and around 600m elevation! 

Our notes – Please read!

This is an unsupported ride. We are organising the lunch which we would love you to come to (see above) and we would love to ride any of these courses with you so bring snacks and water for the ride(we will have some additions for you too) and be prepared for the ride you are taking on. There are sections of dirt on all of the rides. On the 30 we briefly ride on the highway but there is an excellent shoulder and it is just to get us to more remote riding. The 100 and 80 will have optional coffee stop in Kangaroo Valley (we recommend The General Cafe – excellent scones and coffee) and you can grab a drink at the store in Cambewarra too. The 80 and 100 rides are setup so different abilities can enjoy the ride together. I.e. Riders depart together and ride Wattamolla, then the sensible ride on to KV for coffee and scones while the 100 riders climb to Cambewarra lookout.
When riding please keep an eye on each and take care of the traffic. Most of the roads around Berry are excellent but special care needs to be taken on 2 sections regarding traffic. Firstly Moss Vale road into KV can be a little busy but it is generally very good (and you are slightly down hill so move well). Secondly Bolong road out of Bomaderry can be busy but it is flat and Back Forest road which we turn onto is excellent.
Any questions please ask Sam – [email protected] or call us on the day or otherwise on 0412 540 984 or 0450 688598.
Looking forward to seeing you on the road!
