No matter which ride you choose at the Arapiles Cycling Event, you are guaranteed stunning scenery, several rest stops, as well as food and drink along the way.
The race is safe for all to join, as the routes have been carefully planned to avoid highway travel, while there is minimal travel on the main roads. Road rules of Victoria apply on the race as well.
Participants are required to donate at least $20 for the 50km and 100km entries, which will go to Wimmera Against Cancer in Kids – a not-for-profit organisation that helps regional families who have a child with cancer.
