Ride Daylesford is a recreational bike ride for everyone, raising funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).
Starting in Daylesford on Saturday 28th October 2017, over 2,000 cyclists are expected to take part in this inaugural event through the beautiful countryside of Hepburn, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shires. The ride will pass through the towns of Kyneton, Malmsbury, Elphinston, Faraday, Taradale, Harcourt, Walmer, Maldon, Newstead, Franklinford, and Hepburn Springs before returning to Daylesford.
Funds raised will be supporting the BCNA to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs. Please visit www.bcna.org.au to find out more.
Starting at 7.30am, the 146km ride starts and finishes in Daylesford. The course profile and distance are suitable for riders of all types. Experienced riders will find it challenging while those who take on this length for the first time will be supported by Aid Stations to help you achieve the distance.
All three courses will have reduced speed limits and traffic management on intersections to create a safe course for both cyclists and cars. Suggested detours will be in place to keep through traffic off the course.
