For the fourth year, Brisbane BMW and Westside Brisbane are once again holding the Ride for Life Challenge on Sunday 10 November 2013. Be among other cycling fanatics and even rub shoulders with one of the world's cycling celebrities, Robbie McEwenon, in a non-competitive ride around Brisbane and surrounds.
Not only is this fantastic event a cycle challenge, but also a charity event with proceeds going to Guide Dogs Queensland who provides free services to people who are blind or vision impaired in order to equip, empower and educate them; The Pyjama Foundation, who supplies volunteers in delivering mentoring programs to children in foster care; and NexGen Foundation, who recognises and promotes gifted junior triathletes.
Introducing a completely new route this year, Ride for Life Challenge starts at Riverside Park, Hamilton, heads towards the western suburbs, then south of the Brisbane CBD before travelling back to Riverside Park. Encompassing a total of 80km, this cycling loop is a fully supported ride with police escort, a rest stop, cycle guides, first aid, mechanical support and support vehicles.
Teams, corporate groups and individuals, register here. Registration costs $99 which includes a stylish jersey and delicious light munchies. Ride for Life Challenge starts from 5:15am and riders will be separated into different speed groups, which will determine your start and registration times. This event isn't suitable for young children, beginners or mountain bikers. Nevertheless, if you want to be part of the action, spectators are more than welcome on this big day.
After completing the big ride, don't forget to attend the exclusive after party at Byblos Bar Restaurant at Portside Wharf.
