Gear up and get ready for the cycling event of the year, Ride Melbourne.

The City of Melbourne is proud to support this free, community event. We’re committed to making Melbourne one of the world’s great cycling cities: riding a bike is an environmentally responsible way to get around, takes the pressure off our public transport system – and it’s a great way to get fit.

Ride Melbourne brings our cycling community together and celebrates our city’s love of this popular pursuit. This family-friendly event is perfect for all ages and all abilities. Keen riders will be given an unique opportunity to whiz along the Jayco Herald Sun Tour circuit, just a few hours before the world’s cycling elite battle it out for the coveted yellow jersey. Take a leisurely pace or get those pedals pumping as you wind your way through closed city roads, minus the traffic hassles, and take in the spectacular city scenery.

After the ride, relax trackside and soak up the atmosphere of the festival hub in the lush surrounds of the Botanical Gardens.

Enjoy live music, free kids’ activities, food trucks, plus workshops, education sessions and much more.

Congratulations to the organisers on this fantastic event.
