The sleepy Southern Highlands has roared into life each October over the past four years, thousands of riders descending on the sensational cycling region for the much-loved Bowral Classic.
Sadly COVID-19 put a stop to this year’s charity fundraising Classic, a major cycling event that would’ve been the 5th for the region and the Fondo that launched the Noosa, Clare and Mudgee Classics.
The official event was cancelled but that didn’t stop 100’s of enthusiasts from visiting and riding the Southern Highlands over the weekend – each doing their bit to support a wider region hit hard by drought, bushfires then Covid.
Sydney based cycling photographer Greg McCarthy had registered to ride the 2020 Bowral Classic. Given that he and his cycling mates had accommodation booked, they stuck with the plan and enjoyed the weekend away. Still recovering from a recent nasty crash, Greg opted not to ride and instead captured the action with the camera. We hope you enjoy his photos as much as we have!
