It might have been a first, but anyone who participated, organised or just went along and watched the inaugural River and Ranges Winery Ride will certainly reckon there will be many more to come.

And after the cycling was over, GreenEDGE team members mingled with the crowds, signing autographs, posing for pictures or simply chatting about life in one of the most gruelling of sports.
Of course there was the bike education trailer which was purchased with the proceeds of the charity ride. The first of its kind in the country, it will be a huge asset to primary school children helping them stay safe on our roads.
It is easy to see the event becoming a showpiece one for our region, given the backing of Mitchelton’s Gerry Ryan and the outstanding band of fundraisers, led by Sissy Hoskin and Chrissy Beresford, who did so much to make the first one a success.
