Harbour2Vine Charity Cycle Classic on 27 October to raise funds for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

Cyclists of all talents can participate in this year’s Newcastle-Hunter Valley Harbour2Vine Cycle Classic on Sunday 27 October 2019.

The 58km course is suitable for both competitive cyclists and weekend riders, while a 1km children’s ride around the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley offers a family-friendly event.

Riders start at the Rydges Newcastle at 6.30am, with a pre-race breakfast and briefing, and end at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley with a BBQ for riders and their families. There are two rest stops along the way with full refreshments.

Entry is $84 for adults, inclusive of the ride, snacks and lunch, and $20 for children taking part in the 1km ride, which also includes lunch.

Special packages are available for families to attend the BBQ at the Crowne Plaza and also stay overnight at Rydges Newcastle, Novotel Newcastle, or Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley.

A (paid) bus service will be available to take weary riders back from the Hunter Valley to Newcastle if required.

The Harbour2Vine Cycle Classic is the brainchild of Dr Jerry Schwartz, the owner of three hotels in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, as well as the Hunter Valley Conference Centre and Sydney Brewery Hunter Valley.

Dr Schwartz said the cycle classic had been a popular event in the Hunter region over the past decade, and the cycle classic gave both local residents and visitors the opportunity to participate in an inspiring cycle race and raise money for an outstanding charity.

We really emphasise this as a family event, so while some cyclists will take the event very seriously, the biggest goal is for everyone to enjoy the journey from Newcastle Harbour to the vines of the Hunter Valley,” said Dr Schwartz.

The countryside is beautiful, the ride is along quality roads that are ideal for cycling, and the kids just love taking part in their own cycle classic.”
