THE coast will provide the perfect backdrop for cyclists on Sunday, December 4.
Throughout the morning, riders will take part in the Multiple Sclerosis Society of WA’s annual Ocean Ride, which follows the coastline from Fremantle to Hillarys.
There are five course options to cater for all fitness levels and ages and with improved traffic management for the event, all cyclists will stay on the left of the road alongside the ocean.
Channel 9’s Emmy Kubainski will be riding the 10km family course with her two children.
This course starts at 8.30am from Whitfords Nodes in Hillarys, following the bike path north to Mullaloo, then returning to Whitfords Nodes.
The 30km and 50km courses will start from 7.15am at Esplanade Reserve in Fremantle to Whitfords Nodes, with the 50km course doing an extra leg to Ocean Reef.
Riders aged 18 and older can challenge themselves with the 70km and 90km courses starting from 6.30am at Esplanade Reserve. These will travel inland, up Reabold Hill, around Herdsman Lake, through to Ocean Reef and back to Whitfords Nodes.
Also joining the track is Commonwealth gold medallist Michael Freiberg, who is this year’s official ambassador.
The event raises money for MSWA to support West Australians living with neurological conditions.
