25km ride

The 25km ride option is a special addition to Around the Bay 2017. Starting in Alexandra Gardens, it travels to Elwood Park, the Botanical Gardens, along Beach Road before returning back to Alexandra Gardens.

Ride features: closed roads

New for 2017 and to help celebrate our 25th Around the Bay, we've added an extra 5km to our traditional 20km ride option. The extra 5km will take in: The Shrine, The Observatory, The Botanical Gardens and Government House.

The 25km ride will take place on closed roads again, so you can enjoy the ride safely without any traffic to worry about. This makes the 25km ride a perfect option for families and those who are new to riding to get involved in Around the Bay. 

But don't worry if 25km is a little too much you can still do the traditional 20km.
