Amy’s Ride Victoria registrations now open
In 2013, Amy’s Ride Victoria, presented by the Amy Gillett Foundation, offers something special with the iconic event now a key part of the 2013 Cycling Australia Road National Championships in Ballarat next January.
Held just hours prior to the men’s road race at the around Australia’s Road National Championships on Sunday January 13, it carries on the tradition of bringing the recreational bike riders together with the cream of the crop of Australia’s best racing cyclists.
No matter what your cycling skills or age, you can take part in this exciting new format of Amy’s Ride with your choice of one of three new routes (100km, 70km, 20km) taking in the picturesque central highlands on quiet country roads starting and finishing in Buninyong. There are also options to enter as an individual or a family.
Amy’s Ride entrants also have the option for a special hospitality package where they can enjoy the atmosphere of the Road Nationals in style as they watch Australia’s best cyclists battle it out for the green and gold jersey in the Elite Men’s Road Race in style.
At a discounted rate, Amy’s Ride participants are offered the chance to attend the ‘Celebration of Australian Cycling’ gala dinner on Friday January 11 at the Ballarat Mecure Hotel and/or the Elite Men’s Road Race VIP Hospitality marquee on Sunday January 13 at the completion of Amy’s Ride.

Registering is easy, with the process automatically creating your fundraising page and enabling you to invite your friends and colleagues to help generate vital funds to help reduce serious bike rider injuries and fatalities.
As your fundraising total builds you can qualify to receive the official Amy’s Ride jersey, matching AGF Knicks, and other great fundraising prizes and any rider raising in excess of $8,000 will be invited to join in the 2013 Share the Road Tour.
Funds raised through Amy’s Ride Victoria will support the Amy Gillett Foundation in delivering road safety initiatives such as the soon to be launched Community Bike Safety awareness tool-kit. The toolkit will be available to communities nationally via an online portal, and will build upon the AGF’s successful “a metre matters” campaign.
So sign up today to be a part of one of Australia’s largest recreational rides and enjoy all the action this January.
