Médecins Sans Frontières [Doctors Without Borders] will benefit from a 450km, community-fundraising bicycle ride from Mount Gambier [South Australia] to Melbourne over the 2013 March long weekend, Friday 8 – Monday 11 March. Event organisers the Greenham family, residents of Dartmoor, Victoria have previously supported the well-known, medical humanitarian organisation with the same event annually since 2007. [In that same year they cycled an extra 2400km from Rotterdam to Rome; in 2012 the same distance was ridden from Ankara to Athens to raise awareness.] Individual Cyclists and community groups are invited to get involved in the ride, with the aim of raising the profile of the event and funds raised. Riders keen to participate in the ride can email email@example.com or phone 0488 553 803. The planned itinerary is: • 50km Mount Gambier to Dartmoor [departing 5pm Friday from G&D Cycles], • 150km Dartmoor to Warrnambool [departing 8am Saturday from Dartmoor Museum, 10.30am Heywood Bakery, 3pm Port Fairy Bella-Claire Gourmet House ], • 165km Warrnambool to Inverleigh [departing 8am Sunday Brocky’s Cafe, 12.30pm Camperdown Buck’s Bakery], and • 100km Inverleigh to Melbourne [departing 8am Monday Inverleigh Store, 12pm Werribee Train Station].
