The Convict 100 is an ‘institution’ in Australia mountain biking! As one of the first marathon events established in Australia, it consistently inspires all entrants to push their personal boundaries. The 2016 event will be the 12th installment of the “Century of Dirt” and with 100km, 68km & 44km courses available there is a distance to suit riders of all skill & fitness levels.

Hosted from the sleepy township of St. Albans only 2 hours North of Sydney, the course follows the historic Convict Trail through the heart of the Hawkesbury Valley, taking in some of the best scenery the area has to offer. The mix of fast fire trail, technical rock gardens, rocky descents and spectacular ridgeline views is unmatched by any other MTB event. It is rugged, remote and one epic adventure on a bike!
'
The race starts and finishes in the historic township of St. Albans where a community (and the third oldest pub in Australia) welcomes all competitors with open arms. Riders can choose between the full “Century of Dirt” 100km, the “Convict Half” 68km or a 44km introductory ride for beginners and juniors. This is one mountain bike weekend you do not want to miss!

Driving up Saturday morning from Sydney. Thinking wise mans ferry then settlers road? What's the condition of settlers road? Would I be better taking st albans road?

Looking forward to my first convict!

... maybe a few kms. Probably need to dust the bike down if it's on a rack, although the weather forecast means there mightn't be any dust... St Albans rd is tar all the way. The ferry across to Settlers Rd has been much quicker than the Webb Ck ferry in my experience, because everybody seems to queue up for the Webb Ck one.

... might have to break out the purple extreme lube.

And what's this about 23 riders in the 68km over 60's category? As if it hasn't been crowded enough in the over 50's for the last few years, it looks like I'm now riding the wave of baby boomers surfing through the over 60's category as well..... Smiling

Now for my 5th consecutive year, I'll be lining up on the start line, but my first in the elite wave!

Hopefully the weather won't be too bad, really looking forward to another big day out; chat at the finish line!
