Perth Ocean Ride for MS on October 31. 2010

The inaugural Ocean Ride for MS on October 31st 2010 follows the coast from Fremantle to Hillarys. The event suits riders of all abilities with a 30km leg for families and enthusiasts and a 50km course for the more serious cyclist.

“There is no other cycling event in Perth that takes advantage of our amazing coastline. This is an event that we think will literally take a cyclist’s breath away,” said MSWA CEO Marcus Stafford.
“Cyclists will be able to breathe in the fresh sea air as they make their way from Fremantle through Cottesloe, City Beach, Scarborough and Trigg before arriving at Hillarys. And once they get there we’re going to be holding a carnival-style event where everyone can relax and unwind with marquees providing food, drink, entertainment and even sports massages.”
As well as the 30 kilometre Ocean Ride for MS course, there is a 50 kilometre course for the more avid cyclists, which involves a second leg from Hillarys to Burns Beach and back to Hillarys.
“We think the Ocean Ride for MS will appeal to families and weekend caf? cyclists, as well as more serious cyclists looking to go the extra distance. Either way, we want everyone to enjoy the event while helping to raise money for people with MS.”
The course for the Ocean Ride for MS was designed so that cyclists will always be turning left and riding on the left-hand side of the road. A professional traffic management system has been put in place so that any disruption is kept to a minimum.
“We want everyone involved – from the people taking part to those who live along the route – to enjoy themselves,” added Marcus Stafford
