Thanks to all those participants who entered this year's event. For the first time we started the day with rain, however, by 9.00am the sun was shining and the ride went well and ended with a wonderful family day out. Congratulations to all our prize winners and the school with the highest entries this year was Westend - Well Done! Thanks also to our main sponsor Methanex and all the other sponsors that make this event possible.
