Velothon 2018 - on your bike!

Velothon 2018 – on your bike!

The Velothon is back! This is a must-attend event for keen amateurs and semi-professional cyclists ready to pedal up the mountains and follow the hinterland hills.

The Montville Chamber of Commerce is looking for volunteers to help out at the food and drink station on July 20.

The food and drink station was active for about four hours last year and volunteers can work for the whole session or a part thereof if that suits.

We are hoping this year the station will be located near the Village Green, just before the cyclists head down Razorback Road.

if you are interested in helping or wish to find out more details please contact Edi Heide via e-mail ediheide@gmail.com or come into The Opalcutter (Shop 4 ‘The Pottery’ building 171-183 Main Street Montville) to register your intention or get more details.

If you are interested in cycling, you will need to register by July 18, via the website: velothonsunshinecoast.com.au

As the Velothon organisers state, “The 3-day Velothon is not for the faint hearted with its epic climbs and challenging descents. King of the Mountain sections will include some of the Sunshine Coasts best road cycling climbs. Featuring sublime views of both the coast and hinterland. Fast and winding descents make the climbs all the more worthwhile.”

If three days is perhaps too much for you, the 1-day ride offers the choice of 90km or 152km distances around the northern area of Noosa and into the hinterland.

So, take your pick, saddle up or help serve food and drink – either way, you will have a great time!
