When do registrations close?
All participants are encouraged to register prior to the 13th March and check in early. This gives all riders the opportunity to pick up their ride bib, become familiar with the rides, the start/finish point and have any queries answered by event staff answer.
There are discounts available for participants to register early; and a late fee for registrations o the day. With caps in place for the three (3) main rides, we do not expect there to be any entries available on the day. If available, registration will close 15 minutes prior to each ride start time, but you must register on line yourself.
Is there a time limit?
Traffic management will cease at 12.30pm. Every effort will be made to encourage riders to be back at Ebden Reserve by then. The free soft drink and sausage sizzle with be provided to riders until 12.45pm.
Will there be drink stations and toilets on the course?
Yes. Each ride will have at least one (1) drink/rider reviver station and pass a sign posted public toilet. These are marked on the ride description maps for each ride.
What bike can I ride?
We welcome bikes of all descriptions including roadies, hybrids, CX, MTB, e-bikes, tandem, penny farthing, fixies and recumbent. Check the ride description for the recommended bike for that route.
Will there be a festival “Chill Zone”?
In character with the lakeside location, on finishing, riders will be provided a FREE sausage sandwich and soft drink. Riders and supporters are encouraged to BYO and stay on for a picnic and perhaps a swim and enjoy the afternoon with friends and mates. There will be no store sales apart from a coffee van.
