10/9: United Energy Around the Bay (Melbourne)


kid friendly
venue: Melbourne

Australia’s biggest bike ride, United Energy Around the Bay is back for the first time since 2019.

Over 10,000 riders are expected to enjoy the simple pleasure of riding a bike on Sunday 9 October.

Since its inception in 1993, Around the Bay has been run by Bicycle Network and become a rite of passage for seasoned cyclists, colleagues, families and friends.

With closed roads, full on-route support and six ride options from a family friendly 20kms to a challenging 300km loop there is a ride for everyone.

Grab your mates, set a goal and be a part of an iconic bike ride.

The available rides are 20km, 50km, 100km, 200km, the classic 210km loop and 300km ride distances, with free entry for children under 15 years old available for the 20km and 50km rides.

All rides start and finish at Albert Park Lake where an event village will provide a range of entertainment to help celebrate everyone’s achievement.

The spike in bike riding during the pandemic, a desire to be fit and healthy and the social side of bike riding has made the ride one of the hottest tickets in town.

Once you’ve conquered the bay with family and friends you can relax at the village with a bite to eat and a drink and relive all the thrills with other riders.

Since 1993 The Smith Family has been the official charity partner of the event. Riders have raised more than $12 million to help change the lives of more than 20,000 disadvantaged children through education.  Funds raised by Around the Bay riders will help to provide these children with practical essentials like school books, shoes, bags, uniforms and the support they need to keep up at school and realise their full potential.
