We are excited to announce a new start location. The 2017 MS Sydney to the Gong bike ride will now start at Tempe Recreation Reserve!
This new start location is the largest start chute in MS Gong history. Our new start site for the long course is now 82km, but we promise it will still be the most epic and scenic ride you will do in 2017! Riding through the Royal National Park past Waterfall to the Otford Lookout at Stanwell Tops, along the spectacular Sea Cliff Bridge, then along the coast through to a backdrop of sun, sand and surf in Wollongong. A remarkable ride that you will not forget.
We are delivering some great improvements
