Being a part of a MND & Me ride is a special event, but don't take it from us- Kevin Cairns said "I participated in the Brisbane - Sydney ride and the Townsville - Brisbane ride. I found it challenging and extremely rewarding. I built unbelievable camaraderie with the group and made lifelong friends."

Structure of the Peloton
To participate in this event you will be required to have a certain level of bicycle experience and fitness.
The intention of the ride is that participants can cycle at or around 25 k an hour, have when they register or obtain before the event, peloton riding experience, and can ride safely in a peloton with other riders over the duration of the course at a collective base. At this stage, (and based on 25 riders) our intention would be that all riders would ride together in one peloton supported by vehicles front and back and look after each other. Should we deem an additional peloton is required we will advise closer to the event.
