Event Day

Ride with The Ascent on event day 

With more than 10,000 riders expected to take part in the 25th Around the Bay, we want to help make it as easy as possible to ride with us on event day.

On the day: 

  • Before the ride, we'll have a special meeting point for The Ascent riders. You'll get the chance to meet up with other women in the program and chat to our ride leaders and ambassadors.
  • The Ascent will have female ride leaders and ambassadors riding across all distances. They're there to offer support, encouragement and hold a steady pace. 

If you want to ride with us, simply use the promo code ASCENT when entering Around the Bay. Already registered? Shoot an email to fionan@bicyclenetwork.com.au.

We'll send out an email one month before the event with the meeting location and all event day details.


Fondo Kween of the Mountain

Women’s cycling apparel brand Fondo is hosting a Kween of the Mountain party on the iconic Frankston climb, Oliver’s Hill.

Join us at the top of Oliver’s to cheer on your sisters, mums, mates and daughters as they tackle one of the most challenging parts of the course.

The music will be pumping and words of encouragement will be flowing. There’ll be snacks and giveaways for Around the Bay participants, and the opportunity to get a fun selfie with your squad and win some fabulous Fondo prizes.

The Kween of the Mountain event will run from 6-11am
