It wouldn’t be a UCI Road World Championships in Wollongong without an iconic coastal passage.
The Elite athletes will commence in the northern hamlet of Helensburgh, bordering Royal National Park north of Wollongong, before travelling south to Stanwell Tops, then passing by the region’s famous Bald Hill lookout.
Descending toward the city via Coalcliff and along the inimitable Sea Cliff Bridge. The athletes will traverse the northern beaches of the region including Stanwell Park, Coalcliff, Clifton, Scarborough, Wombarra, Coledale, Austinmer, Thirroul and Bulli, heading to Wollongong.
The Women Elite Road Race has two further components – the Mount Keira Loop that is a greatest ascent of the event, and the Wollongong City Circuit.
This course has it all – beach, cliffs, sub-tropical rainforest and a big finish in the heart of the city.
