About Fitz’s Challenge
Fitz’s Challenge is renowned for the amount of challenging, but achievable climbing required within each distance.
Any human powered cycle that is legal to be ridden on ACT roads has been approved by event organiser’s to be used in Fitz’s Challenge. This includes handcycles, tandems, recumbent bikes, tricycles, unicycles and kick bikes.
Fitz’s Challenge has established enough credibility within the cycling community that the 210km and 255km cycling events have been approved as official Audax Alpine Classic qualification rides.
The more advanced distances require participants to ride up Fitz’s Hill as part of their course, which is how the event originally received its name.
Since 2009, The Kids’ Cancer Project has been Fitz’s Challenge official charity partner. Cyclists participating in this event have raised more than $333,000 to date for childhood cancer research.
