2018 event jersey

United Energy Around the Bay 2018 jersey

In 2018 we want you to ride your way. The official 2018 United Energy Around the Bay event jersey design was voted by you and we’re pretty stoked with how it looks!

The jersey was designed to be highly visible, but still contemporary – a jersey you would want to wear but one that also makes you stand out on the road. Just imagine 10,000 people on bikes wearing bright magenta in October!

The Smith Family


For 25 years, United Energy Around the Bay riders have proudly supported The Smith Family in helping disadvantaged Australian children to succeed at school and create better futures for themselves.

One in seven Australian children are living in disadvantage, where even the basics are hard to come by. But through fundraising for your ride in the United Energy Around the Bay, you are helping to break this cycle of disadvantage and change the lives of children in need.
