On the day

The ride starts at Stromlo Forest Park and all riders should aim to arrive at 7.30am in preparation for a 8am start.

At 7.50am we will provide a safety briefing and then roll out at 8am.

The ride is not a race, it is a charity event.

We will be riding on open roads, so all road rules must be obeyed.

We will have several support vehicles, including a SAG wagon.

Depending on numbers riders will be sent off in waves.
