“If you can ride a bike, you can ride The Cruise”, says Martin Wisata from Rocky Trail Entertainment, a sports events company specialising in mountain biking. “We have created a new fun, entry level and family-friendly cycling event where racers can set their goals themselves.”

Rocky Trail selected Mt Stromlo in Canberra for its versatile mountain bike trails, where options to ride 10km, 30km, 50km or 80km will be set out. “It was important to us to host the event at a venue with lots of variety in terms of track lengths and difficulty, to suit all types of bike riders”, Martin adds. “From highly experienced Competitive Racers to the enthusiastic Weekend Warriors. And Newbie Racers who have never participated in an organised cycling event before, don’t worry and give it a go - this is especially for you!”

Riders get to pick the distance that will provide them with their personal challenge – and at the same time take the opportunity to ride alongside experienced racers and share the passion for the sport.

“The Real Bike Insurance MTB Cruise is one event that will inspire riders of all levels to challenge themselves”, says Theo Grobler from Real Insurance. “Our aim is to support cyclists in all ‘real-life-riding’ situations – and that includes such fun events and races.”

Developed for people who are passionate about cycling, Real Bike Insurance covers not only bicycles, but you also personal accidents, which extends across Australia and New Zealand. The standalone bike insurance package includes all sorts of “real-riding-life” situations, including theft, accidental/crash damage whilst in use, including cycling events.

Bring the Kids - this is a family friendly event, with heaps of entertainment for the kids that will keep them busy and happy, including different kids races with exciting prizes and certificates. And the beginning of autumn should promise perfect riding conditions and beautiful surrounds in the Capital.
