2020 event update

It is a decision we hoped we wouldn’t have to make. We’re heartbroken to announce that United Energy Around the Bay will not go ahead this year. 

While it wasn’t easy, in light of the current circumstances in Victoria, we believe cancelling this year’s ride is the only responsible decision we could make.

At a time when our community faces extraordinary challenges, public health and wellbeing must take priority. We understand that this news will be disappointing for many, particularly at a time when we all need something positive to look forward to.

Stay safe and ride on

We also want to acknowledge the impact that this decision has on our suppliers, event partners – United Energy, The Smith Family and Winners – and tireless team of 500+ volunteers.

It is for this reason that we promise to be back again next year with the Around the Bay that you know and love.

Tickets for the 2021 United Energy Around the Bay will go on sale in April and we guarantee that it will be one of the best days that you can have on a bike.

We cannot wait to ride with you again on Sunday 3 October 2021. But until then, keep safe and ride on.
