On the Bike Logistics

HLS’s team is based on participation and, with the right equipment and a moderate level of cycling
fitness, everyone is welcome to join our team.

The HLS Healthcare Cycling Team will organise into 3 groups based on cycling ability:

  • Group 1 shall be able to cycle at approximately 20 to 25 kph for up to 45 mins,
  • Group 2 shall be able to cycle at approximately 25 to 30 kph for up to 75 mins,
  • Group 3 shall be able to cycle at above 30 kph for up to 90 mins,

One of these groups will be ‘on the road’ at all times, and in accordance with the ‘relay’ concept,
will ‘handover’ to the next group at the completion of their stint on the road.

Each group will cycle together during their stint and will complete multiple stints over the course
of the event.

We aim to have a minimum of 4 riders in each of the 3 groups (the more the merrier).

Support Crew

The HLS Cycling Team also consists of a support crew. The support crew will assist the riders by transporting the bikes and bikers to the handover points to maintain the continuity of the relay.

They will also provide support in the form of food, drinks and pep-talks.

The support crew are also invited to register as per the registration instruction above and are required to pay the $110 registration fee. In place of the riding jersey, support crew will receive an official HLS Support Crew t-shirt.

Insurance

As with any event of this nature, you will be required to sign off on a indemnity-disclaimer in order to register. HLS recommends that you have personal health insurance and income protection insurance to support you in the unlikely event of an incident or injury.

Training Rides.

For those based in Melbourne, a number of training rides will be organised in order to tune up our fitness and bunch riding skills. Stay tuned for these invitations.
