The Winery Ride on Sunday 25 November 2012 represents one of only two opportunities this year for the public to participate in an organised ride in Australia with the team.
The inaugural River and Ranges Winery Ride offers something for the recreational cyclist and competitive cyclists along with their families. The day features a 60 kilometre flat course as well as a 150 kilometre hilly route with a Category 2 climb through the beautiful Strathbogie ranges.
Those interested in wine over wheels will enjoy gourmet local food and wine shared in a cycling village setting.
Free music and free children's activity provide additional entertainment opportunities. Kids will love the jumping castle, farm animals, face painting and other family-friendly activities. Entrance to this bustling festival is free.
Rider registration is now open for members and the public with entry fees beginning at $109. For more information visit the River and Ranges Winery Ride website: www.wineryride.com.au
