The longer ride events are flat and undulating and take place on sealed roads. The courses offer scenic routes amongst local orchards and dairy farms, country townships, the occasional Goulburn River crossing and views of Waranga Basin.
The 44km Cross Country Bike Ride follows minor roads, bike paths and formed bush tracks through the Goulburn River and its surrounds. Riders should be aware of uneven surfaces, puddles, rocks, falling branches and steep banks. This course is not recommended for children or thin-wheeled bikes.
The 25km route is flat with long, straight sections. This course is suitable for families.
The Tatura 200 is a ride, not a race! No timing will be carried out.
In addition to the Start/Finish Site there is four drink stations located along the 200km course at Pine Lodge, Mooroopna, Murchison and Rushworth. A fifth drink stop will be added at Waranga in the event of higher temperatures. All drink stops have water, cold drinks, snacks and a first aid kit. Some drink stops have toilets.
The Tatura 200 Charity Bike Ride & Walk does not include closed road courses. The 44km Cross Country Bike Ride takes place predominantly off road, however a small section of the ride occurs on shared roads.
