STAY TUNED FOR THE 2020 PROGRAM!!
2019 EVENT PROGRAM
Get ready for an epic mountain bike trip to the Red Centre. Outback Cycling Easter in the Alice 2019 will be filled with riding (of course), laughs and prizes!
This year we wanted to make the event more than riding, which is why you’ll notice we’ve included either a day or night activity for each day of the race.

AFTER PARTY & FINAL PRESENTATION (Monday 22 April 2019, 6pm-11pm)
Join us at an open-air buffet dinner on our final night under a starry outback night sky. The Old Telegraph Station plays host to a live band, Wolfpack Amadeus, and great dinner along with the final presentations of the event. You are also free to explore the historical attraction, learn about the history of the town of Alice Springs and enjoy our live Blacksmith demonstration. You are encouraged to ride your bike to the event. Cash bar during the evening event. Compulsory requirement: to have FUN!
Alice is very easy to get around on a bike and this is exactly what you will want to do, so bring a bike lock with you, it will make it much easier to leave your bike so you can go into stores and restaurants
Bring bike lights so you can safely commute to early race starts and evening events
Mountain bike hire is available from Outback Cycling, this can be booked at the time of your event registration OR you can contact the OC team to discuss further with them. (OC also have townie bikes for hire for your travel buddies)
Weather: the average temperature at the time of event is 28 degrees during the day, and 12 degrees overnight.
