We Bring To You An All-New World – Australia!
We have launched the latest addition to the MyWhoosh world – Australia. Based on the City of Wollongong, an iconic cycling destination, Australia gives our riders a new opportunity to challenge themselves.
The beautiful city of Wollongong brings together scenic city landscapes and climbs, making it a favorite for Australian cyclists. Keeping in mind the vibrant cycling culture of Australia coupled with an influx of Australian riders in MyWhoosh, we decided to bring Wollongong to the virtual world with ultra-realistic graphics, so that our riders can ride and race this beautiful route from the comfort of their home. To top it off, you can experience Australia in all its glory, day or night!
The main loop has been adapted to create two other shorter routes, allowing riders to hit top speeds along the coastal flats and challenging climbers to push out high watts in the hills.
Route 1: Wollongong City
Designed for the rider who is hungry for a challenge. From the coast to the city, and up the escarpment, this is the main and longest route on the map, providing the full Wollongong experience.
- Total Route Distance: 16.71 km
- Total Elevation Gain: 234 m
- Peak Point: 106 m
Route 2: Wollongong City Beach
Designed for those days when riders want to race on the flats, this variant of the loop will challenge those hunting for their next top speed.
- Total Route Distance: 9.44 km
- Total Elevation Gain: 76 m
- Peak Point: 19 m
Route 3: Wollongong Mount Pleasant
Designed with the elevation seeker in mind, this variant of the route is all about the climb. But remember, what goes up, must come down!
- Total Route Distance: 9.05 km
- Total Elevation Gain: 161 m
- Peak Point: 106 m
