We have designed a 120 kilometre route that is beautiful, yet unfamiliar. Achievable for all, but not without a few little challenges outside of simply climbing a hill or two.
The route will be released to Team Captains (the person that puts your entry in) on Wednesday May 24 at 12pm AEST via email. A GPS route file will be sent out, along with detailed printed route instructions handed out on the day.
This is an unsupported ride. We will hold your hand but just to get you going. We will present every rider with a route card on the day at registration along with a Garmin route to download in the days prior. The rest is up to you. You and your teammates will need to prepare and be self-sufficient on the day.
I want a ticket, where do I go to get one?
Can I come past Black Sheep’s new home at The Woolshed and purchase one?
Sorry, the tickets are only available online. if you have made it to this FAQ section but are struggling to purchase, please email and we will give you a hand.
I don’t have a team to ride with. Can I enter as an individual?
Of course, we want anyone and everyone to have an awesome day exploring the best of Brisbane so leave it with us and we will put you in a team that is of a similar ability.
What should I call my team?
Something that isn’t Team 6, that’s lame. There is a prize for the best team name.
I am worried that I won’t make it around. How do I know if I am good enough?
Have you ridden 100k before? No? Have you got close? Yes? Then you will be fine, just take your time and have a rad day with your teammates. There are beers at the end if you need to forget the experience.
What should I bring on the day?
Food. Everyone hates that angry friend who bonked and became super grumpy. We will be recommending some key stops along the way where you can purchase food. However, we would still recommend that you start the ride with nutrition and hydration that will get you through the ride.
Spares and Tools. To make sure you get around safely, bring two spare tubes, a pump, puncture repair kit, a chain link and it is recommended that riders have new 25mm tires fitted on their bike. If you don’t know what any of that stuff means, get a teammate that knows what they mean.
What if I don’t like beer and want to just hang out afterwards?
Sweet. Come on down and drink your wine, sparkling water, Kombucha, or whatever else you want (NB: We won’t have Kombucha).
I saw that you launched a new range this week, will I be able to see it.
Sure will. Black Sheep has recently moved into a new home in Brisbane, aptly called The Woolshed. We will have a special six-hour pop-up on the day displaying the new range, plus the expanded Black Sheep range. So it’s all there, if you’re interested. Or you could just ride and drink beers.
I get that you launched the Euro Collection but I want Racing Club kit, where do I get it?
Cool, welcome aboard. Firstly, you need to join up online and then you will receive access to the Racing Club kit.
But I am impatient. What do I do?
Join up online straight away, you’ll get an email, and we’ll deliver next business day. So you still have time to wear the famous blue waves come the Racing Club | Classic.
