Bicycle Network: Roadies
Drapac Pro Cycling
We are excited to introduce our newest Ambassadors, Drapac Pro Cycling.
Drapac Pro Cycling will be involved with both the promotion of and participation in key Bicycle Network events and campaigns, which include but are not limited to:
Rider Behaviour and Bike Riding Facilities Campaigns
SCODY 3 Peaks Challenge
Bupa Around the Bay - Fundraise for The Smith Family
“We are very conscious of the importance to grow cycling as both a competitive sport and recreation. Of equal priority is our responsibility to improve both the safety for all cyclists on our roads and rebuilding a common respect between cyclists and road users, and vice versa," Drapac Pro Cycling Team Manager, Jonathan Breekveldt said.
"Bicycle Network has been an active leader in these initiatives for years and we see many synergies with their work. I feel it is part of our social responsibility to all cyclists having our athletes become active ambassadors and work in collaboration to improve the cycling experience for all road users and event participants.”
To launch the partnership, Drapac Pro Cycling joined Bicycle Network's #leadtheway campaign, commiting to all riders that they will 'lead by example'.
Team Bicycle Network
Launched in 2013, Team Bicycle Network are representing us out on the road.
In addition to their racing, they also help you prepare and finish Bupa Around the Bay - Fundraise for The Smith Family and the SCODY 3 Peaks Challenge by running training rides and setting a pace on event to get you across the finish line.
The team also lead a weekly Tuesday morning 550 NRR, which is starting to build a strong gathering. They won't leave you behind, so join them next Tuesday:
Tuesday Morning 550 North Road Ride
When: 5.50am every Tuesday
Where: Meet at the corner of North Rd and Nepean Hwy - Tempo down to Mordialloc then split into a 40km/h+ fast group and a second slower group.
In 2014 we're looking to increase the diversity and size of the team, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and keep an eye on this webpage for further updates.
3 Peaks Pro Team
These riders know what it takes to conquer the peaks.
Leading up to the SCODY 3 Peaks Challenge, the 3 Peaks Pro Team will help ensure you're prepared for what's ahead.
When it comes to Sunday 9 March 2014, the biggest thing a domestique can do for their leader is to set the pace. Rhythm and a positive attitude are required for a good climb, so expect lots of encouragement and help with pace setting from the 3 Peaks Pro Team and Team Bicycle Network.
