VIC: Around the Bay in a Day

August 2, 2009 0 Comments

Bicycle Victoria and The Smith Family are running the incredibly popular Around the Bay in a Day Ride for the 17th year in a row.

Riding around Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, you can choose from 5 different distances with alternative routes, with some entries including a ferry ticket (on longer rides):

250km – SOLD OUT
210km – (with ferry) via Queenscliff – SOLD OUT
210km – (with ferry) via Sorrento
210km – (no ferry) to either Queenscliff or Sorrento

For more details on each ride please visit Bicycle Victoria Around the Bay in a Day.

When: Sunday 18th October

Start and Finish: Alexandra Gardens

At the finish join your fellow riders to enjoy music, live entertainment, food and drink stalls, as well as some great giveaways.

As places on the 210km Queenscliff rides were sold out the day they were made available, BV have created a forum where riders can buy and sell places for the 250km and 210km ride. So if you missed out and are still eager to ride, here’s your chance: simply visit the Bicycle Victoria Forum Pages for details. 

The rides are fully supported by Victoria Police, and there will be Route Marshalls, Riding Marshalls (on the 50km and 100km rides), event signage, First Aid as well as SAG wagons. There are rest areas approximately every 25kms.

Sponsors for the event include: City of Melbourne, Scody, Bean Ground and Drunk, Mizone, Skoda Auto, Honan Insurance Brokers, Rapido Cycles, Trek, Elmore Oil, Hobsons Bay City Council, Nestle, and Hocking Stuart.

So why not join in the fun and help to raise funds for The Smith Family.
