Cyclists put their bodies to the test in ways most can’t imagine.

And Coffs Harbour Cycle Club members are no exception, as they pushed themselves to the limit in one of Australia’s toughest road races.

The Coffs cyclists took part in last weekend’s “Toughest One Day Race” – otherwise known as the Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classic.

Jacob Howland, Simon Lewis and Scott Walcot competed in the 228km race, which featured over 3382m of climbing.

Taking part in Division 3, Walcot finished in just under 8 hours placing 16th, while Howland finished ten minutes later.

Simon Lewis wore the Coffs Harbour Cycle Club’s yellow jersey.

The Grafton to Inverell Cycle Classic has been held since 1961 and is considered one of the toughest races on the Australian road race calendar.
