NSW: Sydney to the Gong Challenge

August 5, 2009 0 Comments

The Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride to raise money for MS is huuuuuuuuuge! This year the organisers are capping the numbers at 10,000 riders and hope to raise 2.5 million dollars for MS research.

There are two distances to choose from – both covering a scenic course:

58km
90km

When: 1st November

Where: Various starting points

There are two major descents on the rides – one at the waterfall when the route enters the Royal National Park, and another on Lawrence Hargrave Drive (from Bald Hill to Stanwell Park). To ensure safety, riders at the top of each descent will be formed into manageable groups and motorcycle marshals and Police will escort each group down the descent.

The course is via public roads, and there will be good Police presence and Marshals along the route. There are also stops for fruit, muffins, water etc. to help get you through the ride.

The sponsors for this epic bike challenge include: the RTA, Sydney Morning Herald, Subaru, Brita, Avanti Bikes, Netti, AustCycle, Kennards Hire, 96.5 Wave FM, The Bike Hub, Bicycle NSW, Gatorade, NSW Volunteer Rescue Assoc, Sydney Markets, Southern Cross Ten, Bicycling Australia and St John Ambulance.

Hats off to the organisers and volunteers who make this day happen… why not join them and have the time of your life on this brilliant ride while raising money for a good cause. Please visit the Sydney to Gong website for more details.
