Ipswich 100

March 25, 2009 0 Comments

Join us for the 2009 Ipswich 100 Ride on Sunday the 5th of April starting and finishing at the University of Queensland, Ipswich Campus.

There are 3 events this year:

  • The Haggarty Group Ipswich 100km
  • Blue Ribbon Motors 50km
  • St Andrew’s Hospital 10km

Please note that the 100km ride has a cut-off time of 5 hours. Out of respect for the organisers of the event, and future relations between AFA and the event organisers we request that if you are unable to complete the course within 5 hours (ie. average a minimum of 20km/h) please opt for a shorter event.

Please note: If you wish any of your times to be recognized by the AFA you must contact an Australian Footbike Association Official to let them know in advance that you will be participating. All times are start to finish times (including breaks) – not just actual ’ride time’.

Official sponsors for the event are Ipswich City Council, The Haggarty Centre, Blue Ribbon Motors, St Andrews Private Hospital and Avanti Cycles. Please support them as you can. Volunteers for the day are the SES Ipswich, fellow Lions Clubs, Boy Scouts, Epilepsy Qld and Zoe’s Place. Thank you – as we all know, the volunteers are the backbone of any successful cycling event. There will also be physiotherapists in attendance to look after any tight muscles, aching backs or limbs.

There will be a hospitality tent open from 6.30am serving muffins, coffee and tea.

There will be a large time clock on the start/finish line for both the 100 and 50km rides. These will be activated with the starter’s gun so that you can check your times when you return.

Upon finishing you can exchange your armband for a free sausage, bun and drink, or alternatively a muffin and cup of coffee or tea.

The event organisers of the 2009 Ipswich 100 are putting on a well-planned event, and have chosen a route with very little traffic and only a handful of traffic lights, and we wish to thank them for the opportunity for Kickbikes and Scooters to take part.

For more information on the ride and to register please visit the Ipswich 100 website.
