Saturday 2nd November 9.30am-4.30pm

Who doesn’t love a day in lycra! Well, scheduled on the quasi Melbourne Cup long weekend there is no excuse to not pack the bikes into a car or the train and come for a relaxed scenic ride around Harcourt and surrounds.

Riders should arrive at Bress at 9.30am for a pre-ride briefing and as a collective depart at 10am sharp. To order your kits and for more-detailed cycling route information see below. Post-ride, cyclists can change or ideally consort in lycra while we have a leisurely Bress lunch of lamb souvlaki, Bress mess and of course, wines served ex-tank and barrel.

$125 per person for riders and supporters and $65 per child. Plenty of action on the ride and back at Bress for our ” Cycling Village ” concept and entertainment for everyone, not to mention some sensational wines from our latest vintage.
