Bupa Around the Bay, 9 October 2016 - make it a great weekend away in Melbourne

So you've done the Gong Ride, the Peaks, and a couple of Grand Fondo's.

Of course there is one challenge that takes you to the heart of one of Australia's great cities for 250kms pleasure, pain and personal fulfilment - Melbourne's epic Around the Bay. 

The annual Bupa Around the Bay ride in support of The Smith Family is on Sunday October 9, 2016. The Around the Bay aims to raise $1.3 million in badly needed funds in 2015. 

Livelo has a range of great road bikes if you need an upgrade from your trusty (crusty) stead. It's a long day in the saddle so you may as make it as pleasurable as you can, and Livelo's Colnago road bikes deliver pleasure in spades. 

If you have not previoulsy tackled a ride like Around the Bay, we advise working up to it. Ideally you would build up to your km goal incrementally, 30km, 50km, 80km ..... With this in mind we have some packages that provide great options for your training rides. 

 PRO TIP

And here's a cycling executive Pro Tip - if you are staying at a hotel don't forget to book a post ride massage in the hotel sauna for Sunday afternoon, this not just the ultimate post challenge wind- down, but a great way to clean up after your ride if you have already checked out of your hotel room.
