The annual Around the Bay in a Day is on this year on October 16 and MBUG has entered a team!
We encourage everyone to do one of the rides on the day, be it the 50km, 100km or a longer ride.
If you wish to enter and be part of the MBUG team please go to http://www.atb2011.com.au/atb/team/wkx495. When you register you will be automatically added to our team. Don’t worry, being part of our team doesn’t mean you have to join a peleton. It simply means you are riding as part of MBUG.
If you would like to sponsor the team, please go to the team page at http://aroundthebayfundraising.com.au/?Mitchell+Bicycle+Users+Group.
Naturally, you will want to do some training for this ride and the aim of these pages is to provide you with all the information you will need to be fit enough for the ride of your choice. MBUG will organise training rides over the next couple of months in order to help prepare everyone for the ride. Please contact us with your details if we wish to be included in the training rides.
