Spartan Challenge

Posted on Updated on

Spartans were one of the most feared military forces in the Greek world.  At the height of Sparta’s power – between the 6th & 4th Centuries (BC), it was commonly accepted that, “one Spartan was worth several men of any other state.

The Spartan Challenge was adopted by the Cardinia Climbers late in 2014.  The challenge thrown down was that you would do things in three, and do them tough.  To complete the challenge you needed:
⇒  To become a member of the Cardinia Climbers club:
cart
elp
⇒  Complete a minimumof 300 km in one continuous ride

help

⇒  A Spartan must be a good climber, and on this ride must climb a minimum of 3,000 vertical

help

⇒  Most importantly a Spartan must be willing to get their hands dirty, and must travel a minimum
     of 3 km over gravel roads on their Spartan Adventure

Spartans are Warriors!  You won’t be awarded a trophy.  You won’t get a finishers badge.  And you definitiely won’t get a ticket parade. 

What you do get is recognition of being one big Bad Ass rider!
