NB:  Muggaccinos 1st Commandment is:

“Hills are your friends, and mountains are your mates.”

Flatter day rides on a recently refurbished quiet road SW of Berry available for rookies and woosses.

No bookings at Berry Showground is req’d and only $6 per night per head camping fee - 20m council swimming pool is 100m from Berry Showground campsite.

Berry is a showpiece of the Southern Highlands with lots of things to do, people to see, places to go and pubs to visit, when not cycling its marvelous mountains.

Not every cycle enthusiast can get days off work in early Nov, so approx. 30% of attendees will drive down early Saturday morning to Albion Park Rail for final two days of climbing – 5 KOM Climbs.  Less than 2 hrs drive from Sydney Harbour Bridge to Albion Park Rail early on Saturday morning.
