Our Rides

There are four rides on offer this year catering for people of all ages and skill levels. All rides will start from Woody Point Jetty at staggered start times to hopefully see everyone return to the finish line close together.

In 2019 we have made it possible for entrants to create teams, so bring your friends, bring your family, bring your work group, bring your sporting club……there is a good chance that there will be prizes on the day for the biggest and best team. More news to come.
