Hello to all our intrepid cyclists from last year’s "Friday Public holiday before AFL Grand Finals"ride.

Thanks again to everyone who participated.

This year our boutique ride (maximum of 200 entrants) will start and finish at the fabulous "Blue Pyrenees Estate" vineyard at Percydale .

The vineyard is located 7km North West from the centre of Avoca. The route will be the Audax “Pyrenees Magic” which circles around the undulating foothills of the Pyrenees Ranges.The event goes through the townships of Moonambel, Landsborough, Elmhurst, Amphitheatre and Avoca. The total distance is 113km with a vertical rise approx 670metres. For cyclists wishing a shorter ride Moonambel (for coffee etc) and back to Blue Pyrenees Estate it is a comfortable 46km on flat roads. The shorter ride will start 15 minutes after the main bunch have left at 9am. The food stop is Landsborough (50km) and another drink stop at Elmhurst (75km). A free “Sausage sizzle” and soft drink awaits at the Rotary BBQ at the end of the ride or a more substantial offering (plus wine etc) is available at “Cafe Blue” at Blue Pyrenees Estate.

The aim is for everyone to ride within their ability and enjoy the day.

In the event of not being able to complete the ride a "sag wagon" will transport you back to Avoca.
