As spring rolls in, so do the Bayside bike riders. And if you want to not only enjoy the wind in your hair but also want to help a very worthy cause, why not join Bupa Around the Bay.

Now in its 20th year, Bupa around the Bay takes you from Alexandra Gardens to Portsea, and back along the Bellarine Peninsula, if you’ve got 250kms in you. If not, don’t fear, there’s a ride length to suit every fitness level.

All proceeds go to The Smith Family, in what is now Australia’s largest mass participation bike ride. Don’t miss out on your chance to be part of cycling history or to join in the celebrations at the Bupa Around the Bay Festival, afterwards at Alexandra Gardens.

WHEN: Sunday, 21 October
WHERE: Alexandra Gardens, St Kilda Road, Melbourne
