Participants are required to bring their own bicycles in good mechanical condition and an Australian Standards approved helmet, correctly fitting and in good condition. If in doubt, bicycles should be checked by a bike shop professional to ensure mechanical suitability. Although leaders are able to carry out minor repairs and adjustments this will place a strain on time constraints. Bicycles can be hired from Port Phillip EcoCentre, St Kilda Foreshore Bike Hire, Port Melbourne Cycles or St Kilda Cycles
These events are funded by Council. We charge a small fee for tickets to reduce the number of people who register and do not turn up on the day.
