Jayco Herald Sun Tour Recreation Ride

There is a recreational ride associated with the Herald Sun Tour event on Sunday 3 February 2019. This message was sent to me for distribution. 

Dear Ian,

I just wanted to reach out and let you know about the Jayco Herald Sun Tour which will he heading your way in a few weeks (30/1-3/2). The Mens 3 Stage will be starting in Sale on Friday 1st of February and it would great to see local faces supporting the riders.

The first day of the tour includes a Ride Phillip Island which enables members of the public to ride the Grand Prix track. This is a free race taking place at the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit in between the Women’s and Men’s first stage.

Ride Melbourne is Australia’s brand new FREE community cycling event taking place on Sunday February 3 prior to the final stage of the 2019 Jayco Australia Herald Sun Tour. Participants will have access to closed roads around Melbourne’s Royal Botanical Gardens; offering a unique experience to ride the same circuit as Australia’s best cyclists.

I think this would be a great opportunity for the  members of Warragul Cycling Club to get access to the track and ride a unique location. It would be fantastic if you could share/discuss the following link with the group.

More information of the 2019 Jayco Herald Sun Tour can be found at: www.heraldsuntour.com.au

If you have any questions about the event please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Annelee Kwan
