The following is an invite for a new invite hosted in NW Victoria. This is not a Hawthorn event, but I think that there may be sufficient interest to warrant posting it here.

Please see below for information, and the external email address for any questions.
We are delighted to invite you to participate in the Blue Pyrenees Magic bike ride 6th November 2016.

Our “Pyrenees Ranges” in North West Victoria is cycling heaven with undulating roads, little traffic and views over vineyards.

Once again our wonderful sponsors are “Blue Pyrenees Estate" vineyard and the event starts and finishes at the vineyard. Think wine, coffee, cake, food. Did I mention the award winning wine?

It’s for charity… profit from this event helps to purchase much needed equipment for our local hospital (Maryborough and District Health Services).

It’s supported with a sag wagon and St John’s First Aiders.

It has a food stop at Landsborough (52km), drink stop at Elmhurst (77km) plus free sausage sizzle and drink at the finish.

It’s great value… Ride to Moonambel and back (46km) $25 or the “Magic” ride 114km ($55).

It has special deals … Ride plus Jersey top plus full bottle of Blue Pyrenees wine add $40 to ticket price … only available for a limited time ..closes 27th September 2016.

It’s not far from Bendigo (103km), Ballarat (78km), Melbourne(190km), Geelong(173km)

Hope you can come,

(President, Rotary Club of Maryborough)
