Dear Friend of the Male Bag Foundation.

In October The Male Bag Foundation will be hosting a 3 day hub ride in the Geelong area. We hope we can entice you to join us for all 3 days, or to ride a single day if necessary. The ride will be full of fun and fellowship as well as a bit of fundraising, both on and off the posties.

Day 1. Depart early from Stradbroke Park, Burke Road, Kew to ride via the bayside suburbs to Sorrento. A ferry ride, including lunch, to Queenscliff, then on to Pt Lonsdale, Barwon Heads, and Torquay, finishing in Geelong. A night of entertainment at the Little Creatures Brew House, with a tour, food and drinks supplied. Overnight at the Riverglen Holiday Park.

Day 2. Breakfast at Cafe R n R, then ride the Great Ocean Road via Anglesea to Lorne for morning tea at the Grandma Shields Bakery and on to Apollo Bay for lunch. Into the Otway Ranges via Skene’s Creek, Otway Ranges and Birregurra, where we will participate in the Festival and Art Show before returning to Geelong via Winchelsea.  The day culminates with a surprise fundraising dinner in Cat Country that night!?

Day 3. Breakfast again at Cafe R n R, before heading to Drysdale via the Portarlington Rd. On to St Leonards, Indented Heads and the Jack Rabbit Winery for lunch with partners. Home to Melbourne via Eastern Beach and the Princes Highway.

+ You need to access an ex-Australia Post motorcycle, but we can arrange hire of a bike if necessary.

+ It will cost you $550 which is all inclusive and covers: entry fee and insurance, event apparel, petrol, all meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner and morning tea) events and accommodation.

+ We have mechanical service on hand for minor repairs, and a spare bike for a major breakdown.

+ Each rider is expected to raise a minimum of $1000 in sponsorship and donations for the MBF’s work with prostate cancer.
