Riding over the Westgate isn’t for everyone, which is why we’ve got our family ride for those who are still keen to jump on their bike and get involved.
Made up of two shorter courses, you can choose to ride 3km or 6km around a closed course in Flemington Racecourse. Both are off road, so are perfect for kids, families or less experienced riders.
The family ride takes you along the prestigious Member’s Drive, down near the Maribyrnong River, through the Elms and under the grandstand - all while being surrounded by the famous Flemington rose gardens. And remember, our wonderful volunteers will be located on the course to assist, direct and cheer you on as you make your way from start to finish.
If you are keen to ride AND run to fight MS you can! Register here to RUN 5km & RIDE 3/6km. Line up at the start line for the 5km run. Then when you're ready, ride the 3/6km family ride course at your own pace. This option is also handy if you are chaperoning kids who want to ride, and some who want to run...and some who can't make up their mind!
