Our Bell Curve gravel ride is called that because the route profile sums this ride up in those two words…BELL and CURVE!

But seriously – this route has some of the most awesome gravel riding through Canberra’s pristine forest and national parks. Traversing the river and then sweeping up to the high country, before descending back to Cotter. The ride will make your grind your way up a 10km ascent before a pretty clear and even descent back to the Stromlo Expo Village.

All up it’s a 70km slice of Brindabella Ranges heaven – one not to missed by the Gravel aficionado.
