The MS Melbourne Cycle 30km and 50km courses are held on public roads that may have high traffic demands or present difficult conditions such as steep descents. Participants are urged to exercise extreme caution at all times and ride in a protective manner, constantly scanning the environment to be aware of what is happening around them.
Your health and safety is foremost during the 2017 MS Melbourne Cycle. To ensure all cyclists have a safe and enjoyable time as well as our volunteers, local residents and the general community, we have compiled some rules to remember during your ride.
RULES TO REMEMBER:
The future of the MS Melbourne Cycle is dependent on the continued support of riders behaving appropriately on the roads during the event. Riders disobeying traffic rules, running red lights, or stopping on the West Gate Bridge are noted by authorities such as the Police and Vic Roads, and continued breaches could see the permit to run the event withdrawn.
Police will be on the road and will fine those who:
Volunteer marshals may disqualify riders who are seen breaking the law. This will mean you are banned from future MS Melbourne Cycle events, so please follow these rules to ensure an enjoyable day for all.
Your actions are not only responsible for your own safety and those around you, but also have an impact on the continued fundraising work of MS and people living with multiple sclerosis.
We thank you for your support and cooperation and trust you will have an enjoyable MS Melbourne Cycle experience.
