More than 2,000 cycling enthusiasts are expected to visit the region for Ride Daylesford on 27 October; a recreational ride offering participants a choice of three distances that all meander around the beautiful countryside of Daylesford.
Participants will ride through the surrounds of Hepburn, Macedon Ranges and Mount Alexander Shires, and pass the towns of Kyneton, Malmsbury, Elphinston, Faraday, Taradale, Harcourt, Walmer, Maldon, Newstead, Franklinford, and Hepburn Springs before returning to Daylesford.
Whether those taking part choose the 33km,63km or 143km, riders are encouraged to ‘ride for a reason’ by fundraising or making a donation to Breast Cancer Network Australia.
The event is now in its second year, but this isn’t just for tourists. Locals are also encouraged to do some good in the hood and support BCNA and the 18,000 Australians that will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018. All funds raised will be supporting the BCNA to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
Along with raising money for a good cause while exercising, participants also have the option to enjoy a weekend away into Spa Country and visit all the attractions that this region has to offer. What’s not to love about this?
