Get ready for our upcoming MC Velo Escape.
For the inaugural event we have chosen the beautiful destination of Thredbo in the Alpine Region.
For this escape we have partnered with YHA for a long weekend in November 2022.
Alpine NSW riding is probably the closest to big scale European climbing feature rides you can experience without leaving Australia. Our curated routes will certainly give you all a good challenge and a taste of long climbs with beautiful scenery and local villages, there’s a firm emphasis on fun and quality time in the saddle with your Velo friends.
This is most definitely not a ‘Training Camp’ and why it is an ‘Escape’. All you have to worry about is getting on the bike each day and what to eat and drink later on!
In this popular destination for cycling of all disciplines, we will enjoy three days of road riding together. Ride route will remain subject to change based on conditions.
THREDBO 25-27 NOVEMBER

HOW TO BOOK
There are two options available for MC Velo members for riding and non-riding participants.
We welcome non-riding partners and families to join us if this is preferred. There is plenty to do in the area and surroundings whilst we are out on the road and of course much fun to be had at dinner.
For multiple riders and non-riders in the same order, we will place you in the same room (on a first-in basis, limited availability).
Couples we will aim to have your own room on a first in basis.
You are securing one place at the Escape for you to attend and ride, in a room with one or more people.
You are securing one place at the Escape for a friend or family member to attend but who isn’t riding, in a room with one or more people. Couples and families will be prioritised to own rooms. Your friend/family member doesn’t need to be a MC Velo member to attend.
