The Bowral Classic is more than just Cycling. The event will live up to the Southern Highlands’ reputation as a foodie hub with suppliers from all over the region offering up an array of fine food and beverage delights at ‘The Village’, a tent land that will spring up at the Bowral Classic finish line, Eridge Park.

Riders and their supporters can relax on supplied bean bags and refuel on the fine food, coffee, wine and craft beer that will be in abundance at The Village where a live band and BBQ will also add to the festivities. And there will be an array of kids’ activities, including a petting zoo and face painting.
