Politics, Religion & Salvation (2018)

This ride explores territory between Yass & Parkes. Takes in the historic Iandra Castle (Politics) & St Clement Monastery (Religion). From undulating to almost dead flat, with some picturesque quiet roads. Supported ride (salvation).

Routes are being finalised - the routes listed will change slightly but start/finish in Binalong. Overnight support is at Forbes for 600 and bagdrop for 200+200 is Gooloogong. This will not change.

Rides start and (eventually) finish in Binalong. The start/finish has been moved to Binalongto avoid the increasing traffic into Yass on a Sunday afternoon. Binalong is about 30 minutes drive from Yass (34km) where there is more accomodation available. In Binalong try http://www.hotelbinalong.com.au or http://www.motelroyaltara.com.au.

200+200: You need to book your accommodation in Gooloogong yourself and you should do this ASAP. Bag will be dropped at the pub on Saturday and picked up Sunday. Map is 02 6344 8327. You also need to book on Day 2 ride "Monastic Fantastic". Ride fee for Saturday includes bag drop/pickup and supported checkpoints (1 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday).

600: Accommodation in Forbes can be booked through registration. Accommodation with registration has run out. You'll need to book your own in Forbes. Ride fee includes bag drop/pickup in Forbes, meals for dinner and breakfast left in your room, and any supported checkpoints (probably 1 each day) but on the ride there's sufficient towns with good cafes and bakeries.  Twin share accommodation is only available if selected by enough people, if there are uneven numbers the last person to register for twin share will be asked to upgrade. 

Where support fees are paid anything beyond a small surplus will be refunded to riders.

Please check the  Audax Lighting Rules and the Reflective Garment Guidelines.
