The 2017 running of the Urban Polaris will take place on 29 April 2017. Forming part of the Canberra & Region Heritage Festival and Australian Heritage Festival the event will take in heritage sites spread throughout Canberra and is the best bike navigation event in Australia. Come and make tracks in the Capital as teams of 2 riders take to the cycle paths, forests and roads seeking out a choice of checkpoints in a seven-hour event that is open to serious riders, recreational riders and teams of all ages.
There will be minimal advertising for this event so we will be relying on word of mouth within the cycling community. So, please, please like us on Facebook and Twitter and tell your friends! Thanks
The 2017 Urban Polaris is being run by the National Trust with the assistance of a grant from the ACT Governments Heritage grant program and aims to broaden the community’s awareness of the valuable history and heritage that lies within Canberra”.
The Australian Heritage Festival is supported through funding from the Australian Government's National Trust's partnership program.
