CHICKS IN THE STICKS | 18 August 2024

Smiles, costumes, colour and joy – it’s a race, but not as you know it!

Get ready for a clucking good time at CITS on 18th August 2024.

In 2022, Chicks in the Sticks returned to Karingal, with a new event base, and new trails designed specifically for this event. In 2024 the location and course will remain the same so our Chicks can continue to track their progress.

RATS Cycling Club has designed and focused this ‘race’ on the participation level of rider. While we do have our speedy sisters competing in Chicken Run, Hard-Boiled Double Yolkers and also in Battery Hens (ebikes), Electric A-Peel (ebikes) and Clipped Wings (single speed) – and we welcome them and their skills – we are conscious of ensuring the course is manageable for the newer riders, or if Girls just wanta have FUN!

A shorter green-level trail will be raced on by the more beginner-level categories, and a longer and harder blue-level loop will be used by the more experienced riders. Something for everyone! See the ‘course’ link for a map.

Categories range from three-hours solo to teams of two, divided by experience. And our Little Chicks have their own mini-course to shred or can tackle the full loop for two hours. See the ‘categories’ link for more.

Our very fest samples of the Gravel Cartel X BOWY Cycling Gravel Shirt.

We loved the idea of pink and a darker colour plaid. We didn't love the orange. The brown and blue were okay, they just weren't perfect.

We absolutely loved the colours and we all got to put them to good test at the Gravel & Flannel Festival.
