Tim’s Ride - Registration Information

Date Saturday 12th November 2016 (afternoon and evening)

Introduction

Tim’s Ride is an annual event first held in 2012 to remember Tim Anderson who was tragically killed when cycling along Curtin Ave on 8th March 2012. It also aims to bring together all parts of the cycling community to improve cycling safety with an emphasis on visibility and interaction with vehicles.

Any profits or donations will go towards Tim’s Scholarship which is managed by Youth Focus and assists a young person associated with the organisation with their tertiary education.

General Event Details

The aim is to appeal to all parts of the cycling community and all levels of cycling ability so there will be two different routes which must be specifically registered for. Please remember this is not a race but a memorial ride with time for conversation and contemplation.

As this ride is about visibility and safety all riders must wear approved helmets, gloves and protective eyewear and all bikes must be in good order and have working front and rear lights.

The two routes will meet at Tim’s Memorial on Curtin Ave for a brief sunset ceremony then finish at Harvey Field for a sausage sizzle.

Peloton Route (distance 26 kms)

This peloton ride is designed for experienced riders on road and hybrid bikes. It will start and finishing at Harvey Field travelling in groups with support vehicles.

You will ride in a peloton with groups of about 50 riders. If you wish to form groups of friends, please indicate your preference in the registration form.

Expected assembly time is 4pm.

Coastal Route (distance 2-10 kms) “Community Ride”

This route is designed for riders of any level and also children. Children will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult and have parental permission to ride.

This “out and back” route starts at Harvey Field and goes out to North Mole and back along the bike pathway. Participants can choose to return earlier if that better suits their age or skill.

You will ride in small groups of 4-6 with the emphasis is on fun and safety.

Expected assembly time 5.30pm

Memorial Service

The Anderson Family will be hosting a brief memorial service for Tim Anderson at the site of the Ghost Bike Memorial as the sun sets. The car parks each side of the memorial will be closed to all traffic and Tri Events have kindly sponsored their Bike Racks for safe and orderly storage of bikes during this service. Marshals will assist in orderly storage of the bikes and later departure for Harvey Field.
