Ride Start Time:
8.30am Sunday 28th October
The start for this ride will be staggered to allow an orderly movement of cyclists onto Jordan Esplanade. Parents are encouraged to teach their children basic road rules and limit riding to 2 abreast so other riders can pass, especially on the Jetty South Wall.
There is a separate presentation for the 10km ride, with 2 children’s bikes included in the lucky draw. The presentation will be at 10.00am at the finish area. All prizes are lucky drawer numbers, so every rider has a chance to win some fantastic prizes. All riders will receive a show bag of goodies provided by sponsor Amart Sports. Riders must be at presentation to claim their show bags and prizes.
Below is the route map:
Depart the start area by turning north onto Jordan Esplanade.

At the end of the breakwall, complete a safe U turn and return to the Jetty via the same route. 5.0km
Repeat this ride to complete the 10km distance.
Please be careful on the return ride as you will pass other riders coming in the opposite direction.
