Let your friends know - so more can take part in these challenges and help to make this a truly exciting cycling celebration.
A Jersey is also available. This Jersey is produced by one of our sponsors - Megabike. These will cost $59 to cover manufacturing. When you register for any event you can choose the option that includes the donation and the Jersey or purchase the Jersey individually.
*We plan to have our own BikeFest Jersey in preparation for our event next year.
We ask you to make a donation of $20 when you register - money raised will go toward the CFS Water Tanker appeal, so we have the required resources to support fire fighting efforts in the unfortuante event that severe bushfires place our community at risk.

Insurance for Riders - Did you know that when riding a bike on a public road you have the same risks as driving a car. You can get Third Party Insurance to cover you, others and property if you happen to have an accident. This is very easy. All you need to do is become a member of BikeSA, and you will be covered. A single membership is $80, concession $57, family $110 and household concession $77. This Third Party Insurance will cover you for a year anywhere in Australia. It also provides some cover for medical expenses and time off work. We strongly recommend all participants of our rides to protect themselves with this Insurance. It is voluntary, but of course you have to take responsibility for the risks if you don't. Visit BikeSA membership page here for more information: http://www.bikesa.asn.au/joinorrenewtoday
