Ladies, meet your Magnificent Seven

Join the purple jerseys! We’ve invited seven amazing women who live and breathe cycling to help support you in this year’s Brisbane to Gold Coast Cycle Challenge on October 15.

You’ll find ambassadors riding in EVERY SPEED CATEGORY!

Our ladies are there to help you achieve your goals the day and to make B2GC17 your best ride yet! They know what it takes to step up to the challenge of your first 100km and they know just how to get you over that finish line with a giant smile on your dial.

Your ambassadors include a former international competitive cyclist, a cycling coach, the highest individual fundraiser over multiple years for the Heart Foundation’s B2GC appeal and a cycling devotee who’s helping to organise the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Keep pace with them, sidle up for a quick chat or just admire their brilliance as you cruise by. Just look for the purple jerseys!

With women making up less than 25% of total entries for mass rides, it’s time to gather the girls and make that statistic history!
