Bowral Classic 2021 postponed to December due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic

The fifth edition of the Bowral Classic has been postponed from 16-17 October 2021 to 11-12 December 2021. The cycling Gran Fondo event held in the Southern Highlands of NSW is part of The Classics series by Bicycling Australia.

The event has been postponed due to the evolving COVID outbreak and lockdown restrictions affecting NSW. Organisers have followed the advice of NSW Health and the Australian Government and feel it is only fair to their loyal rider community to act decisively and offer as much notice of the date change as possible.

The decision to postpone the annual event to December has not been made lightly, with organisers considering Federal Cabinet’s National Plan to Transition Australia’s COVID-19 Response.

Classics Founder, James Yaffa, said “While we are devasted to postpone the event for the second year, we are determined to bring back the Bowral Classic to the Southern Highlands in December this year.”

“We understand this date change can prove challenging for our riders and partners, however we are doing our very best to make the 2021 Bowral Classic a reality and their ongoing support throughout these volatile times means a lot.”

Riders who had registered for the 2021 event will automatically be transferred to the new event weekend of 11-12 December 2021. If they are unable to make the new date, an option for deferral to Bowral Classic 2022 or refund will be offered.
